A Promise Kept

If you’ve been following along the past few weeks you know that I’ve been pondering one particular scripture as I crank along the Mississippi River.

Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you
not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:18-19

I’m finding that I see more deeply as I continue to reflect upon these words. A couple of days ago I noticed something in the last two lines. Read them and then consider these words of Jesus.

I am the way… John 14:6a

Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” John 4:10

Do you see it?

Several centuries after Isaiah recorded God’s promise to make “a way” in the wilderness and “streams” in the wasteland, He sent Jesus—the way, the living water.

What are your thoughts?
