Today’s Key Scripture
“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.”
— Isaiah 43:18-19
God’s Spirit is always moving and working on our behalf. He is not doing the same thing today that He did yesterday.
We must never be so caught up in past experiences with the Lord and answers to prayer that we miss what He is saying and doing right now.
Jesus said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). Notice that the Word of God says “proceeds,” which is present tense. As you have fresh fellowship with the Lord today, you will know what He is saying to you.
There is simply no other way to live now, have power now, and operate in God’s anointing now than to live by the Word that proceeds out of His mouth now.
Many wonderful and well-meaning people wonder why their prayers seem to bounce off the ceiling. Often this happens because they are hanging on to what God spoke to them in the past.
The times may change, but God’s Word never changes. God is the God of the present, right now. His voice gives life today, but it is up to you to listen to His voice.
A Prayer for Today
My Father, thank You for being involved in my life. I’m grateful that You desire to have a personal relationship with me, even as I desire an intimate connection with You. Thank You for Your love for me today and forever. Thank You for the blessings You’ve entrusted to me and my loved ones. Help me to use those blessings to bless others. Direct My steps as I live and walk with the Holy Spirit today. I pray this in the name above all names, Jesus, amen.
