Capacity

“This is what GOD says, the God who builds a road right through the ocean, who carves a path through pounding waves, The God who summons horses and chariots and armies— they lie down and then can’t get up; they’re snuffed out like so many candles: “Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands. Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’ —the coyotes and the buzzards— Because I provided water in the desert, rivers through the sun-baked earth, Drinking water for the people I chose, the people I made especially for myself, a people custom-made to praise me.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:16-21‬ ‭MSG‬‬

The older I get the longer the testimony I have of God’s goodness and faithfulness. And yet, here He’s telling me to forget all that – it’s nothing compared with the new He’s about to do. I must somehow enlarge my capacity to expect more than He’s already done. So that any place in my heart not thriving with hope is filled with new rivers to water dry ground. Any place not bursting with praise would be given new eyes to see from His perspective. Oh Lord enlarge my capacity today.
