You have heard it. Observe it all. Will you not acknowledge it? From now on I will announce new things to you, hidden things that you have not known. (Isaiah 48:6)
How exciting. New, hidden things. Adventures are waiting.
Remember a week or so ago when I blogged about “nothing new under the sun”? Does this contradict it?
Not at all. (Although that’s not to say I don’t struggle from time to time with what seems to be contradictions in God’s Word to my limited perspective.)
But in this case, the newness is new to us. It’s being revealed. It’s been hidden. It’s not new to God, nor is it likely new to others. But God knows what we need when. And He knows what we’re willing to acknowledge.
I love learning and adventures…most of the time. Sometimes I appreciate learning and adventures, but they weren’t my favorite lessons and experiences. Some stuff about life is simply difficult. Still worthwhile, and I wouldn’t give it up, but definitely not easy.
I still look forward to learning. I still want God to reveal new things to me. I still want to know Him the very best that I can, because I am never disappointed in who He is.
