"See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you" (Isaiah 42:9 NIV)

Decorations are mostly down. Wrapping paper has been packed away and stored. Neighborhoods are darker without the Christmas lights. Parties are over. Gifts have been given ... and many exchanged. Resolutions were made ... and more than a few have already been broken. Vacations are over. Diets are getting harder to keep or have already been broken. The old year has gone. The New Year has come. We're back at work and facing the same ruts of last year. But if we allow God to show us, it can still be a time for new things.

No one knows the new things that will come our way during the course of this next year, but one thing is certain: new things will come.

Think about the last year. Reflect on the new things you have seen Him do in your life during the past year. Think of the new people you have met during the last year. Think about the new experiences you have had. Think about the songs you have heard and learned. Think about the new books that have been written and that you have read. Think about the new movies that have been released and that you have seen.

This year will also be filled with new things. New opportunities in your work place will come. New opportunities to enrich your family life will come. Many new things are sure to appear on the horizon relating to your career and your relationships.

New things will come!
New things will come in your spiritual walk. As you enter into this New Year, if you will open your heart to God and ask Him to show you what He wants you to do, who He wants you to be, and where He wants to take you, He will do it. He will show you new things.

Look for the new things the Lord wants to show you. Stay alert. Listen to Him as He speaks new things to you. Watch for the new things He will do that will amaze you. Open your eyes to what the Lord has planned for you.

The Lord wants to show you new things.

The next twelve months promise all kinds of new things. Athletes will set new goals and reach them. Teachers will see students acquire new knowledge. Golfers will play new courses and hit new shots. Preachers will preach new sermons. Families will move into new homes. Husbands and wives will reach new dimensions in their relationships.

What about you? Are you ready for God to show you new things?

"You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them? From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you." (Isaiah 48:6 NIV)

Let God show you new things!
