Are You Forgetting the Former Things?

On the final day of Rich’s Ride I spent some time wondering what final insights I might glean from the scripture I’d been pondering for the past eight weeks.

I recalled a pastor friend suggesting that a good tactic involves highlighting different words. So for a few miles I thought about how the third line took on slightly different textures as different words were emphasized.

See, I am doing a new thing!


God is doing a new thing. It’s not up to me.

Surely He invites my participation, but He’s not waiting around for my approval or my permission. He’s got a plan, and it’s HIS thing, not mine.


He’s not planning or pondering. It’s not some future vision. He’s DOING it, right now. I just need to open my eyes and see it.


I know what “new” means in my world, but imagine what “new” connotes from the perspective of the infinite creator of the universe. When He says something’s NEW, it might be a good idea to take note.

See, I am doing a new thing!

I want to perceive it.
