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 43:19 NIV

A new year is a time to start fresh. No matter what your history is with faith, food, fitness, focus, or friends, this is a great day to turn a new page.

God wants to make a path in the wilderness for you to journey on. If you’ve had areas of wasteland in your life, he wants to pour streams into that desert and make it bloom.

Nothing is impossible for him. God says, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27 NIV). The answer is no.

With this new year, it’s a good idea to set some goals for yourself. Goals are the steps we take each day, week, and month to get from where we are today to the future we dream of having. A goal is a dream with a deadline.

If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you like to do with your life this year? What is one goal you’d like to start with, knowing that it’s up to God to make it possible?

Food for Thought: God is doing a new thing in you. He’s making a way in the wilderness for you to walk toward the life he has in store for you.
