New Direction


New Direction

 

We are not retreating - we are advancing in another direction. ~General Douglas MacArthur~

 

Sometimes, when things may initially appear to be a resounding failure or a significant loss, they can ultimately result in the very re-direction of our time and attention that was needed at that time, to allow us to arrive at the next stage of our journey. Learn to always look for the inherent lessons contained in each, and use the wisdom gained in moving forward. Trust that as one door closes, another will be opened to you that will contain blessings beyond that which you may have been able to see previously.

 

Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters, who brings forth chariot and horse, army and warrior; they lie down, they cannot rise, they are extinguished, quenched like a wick: “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:16-19 ESV

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go. Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea; Isaiah 48:17-18 ESV

So Abram said to Lot, Let there be no strife, I beg of you, between you and me, or between your herdsmen and my herdsmen, for we are relatives. Is not the whole land before you? Separate yourself, I beg of you, from me. If you take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if you choose the right hand, then I will go to the left. And Lot looked and saw that everywhere the Jordan Valley was well watered...Then Lot chose for himself all the Jordan Valley and [he] traveled east. So, they separated...The Lord said to Abram after Lot had left him, Lift up now your eyes and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward; For all the land which you see I will give to you and to your posterity forever. And I will make your descendants like the dust of the earth, so that if a man could count the dust of the earth, then could your descendants also be counted. Arise, walk through the land, the length of it and the breadth of it, for I will give it to you. ~Genesis 13:8-11 (Amp)~
