If you’ll stay in faith, you’re going to see the new thing. Like God did for the Israelites, He’s going to bring you out of captivity. He’s going to free you from limitations and negative things that have been passed down in your family line. In this new thing, God is going to break generational curses, addictions. Poverty and depression will no longer hold you back. There are about to be streams in that desert. That barren land is about to be turned into fertile land, an abundant land, where dreams come to pass. He’s going to catapult you to where no one in your family has gone.
There’s a big windshield in front of you and a very small rear-view mirror. The reason it’s so small is because what’s behind you is not nearly as important as what’s in front of you. Where you’re going is what matters, not where you’ve been. Is there something you need to forget, so you can see the new thing, something you need to quit dwelling on, so you can step into the favor and abundance that God has for you?
The Israelites had been through many struggles and had unfair things happen. They made mistakes, brought trouble on themselves. But Isaiah said, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. Behold, God is doing a new thing.” The principle is, if you’re dwelling on the past, you won’t see the new thing. If you’re focused on who hurt you and what wasn’t fair, why a friend walked away, then you’ll miss your destiny. God is saying, forget the former things; quit dwelling on your mistakes. This is a new day.
Get your hopes up. Start expecting God’s favor; start believing for the unusual. God wants to make you an example of His goodness. He’s already set in motion something better than you can imagine. You can’t see it yet, but that doesn’t mean it’s not en route. Keep believing, talking like it’s on the way. Keep doing the right thing. You’re going to see God exceed your expectations
Look around; find the favor connections in your life. Don’t be jealous because they have more; don’t be intimidated because they’re further along. Celebrate them, honor them, cheer them on. If you’ll do this, I believe and declare, because you’re connected to favor, new doors are going to open, new opportunities, new levels. You’re going to rise higher, accomplish dreams, and reach the fullness of your destiny.
