At times our lives are like a barren desert. There seems to be little real joy and peace; we seem to be wandering in the wilderness of discouragement. But God promises to do a new thing. Trusting in Him we find new direction and purpose.
No wonder John’s heart was filled with joy! He heard the heavenly beings singing praises to Jesus in the form of a song of deliverance. Our voices can join in heaven’s chorus today. We have been redeemed. Through Jesus we are priests and kings of God. Praise His name.
“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away” (Rev. 21:1).
The God we serve offers us newness in His love every day. His mercies are new every morning. He changes our lives and gives us a new heart. One day the age of sin and suffering will be over and He will create a new heaven and a new earth.
