ď I Will Do A New ThingĒ Text Isa 43:18-21.

Intro:
There are many people who think that God has stopped moving in their midst they think that God stopped moving a long time ago. But thatís not true!!! Its because they donít have their attention on what God is doing today. He said,Ē I will do a new thingĒ.
Expl:
The fundamental principles of divine activity are changeless, but the outward shape of that activity alters with the changing needs of Gods people. We are meant to reflect on the past with gratitude and stimulated faith but not to allow it stereotype our expectations from God.
PS: God is doing a New Thing!!

To be able to see what God is doing we need to follow the instructions of these verses.
1. Donít live in the past! (18).
1. At times we canít see the new things that God is doing because we are living in the ďgood old daysĒ. blinded by the past.

CONCL:
Therefore we must keep our minds and hearts open to what God is doing and what He wants to do in our midst. Even in the wilderness he will make a way where it seems impossible and impassable. Remember He has said in HIS Word I will do a new thing. Let Him do a new thing in your in your heart, home, marriage, job, church, school, Community. Lets allow Him to refine us in the desert (fire) that we may show forth His praise, and tell others itís ok He is doing and will do a new thing.
Friends he has done great things here at Seaway before, yes, He is doing great things now, but hold on to your hats, He still has more in store. He will do new things.
