Instructions for the New Year

January 1, 2015

Isaiah 43:16, 18-19

 From the NIV

This is what the Lord says—

“Forget the former things;

   do not dwell on the past.

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.


From the NKJV

Thus says the Lord ….

“Do not remember the former things,

Nor consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing,

Now it shall spring forth;

Shall you not know it?

I will even make a road in the wilderness

And rivers in the desert.

From The Message

This is what God says,

“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.

 From the NLT

I am the Lord,

“But forget all that—

   it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.

For I am about to do something new.

   See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?

I will make a pathway through the wilderness.

   I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
