God Is Always Doing Something New

Today’s First Reading is a wonderful passage from the 43rd chapter of the Prophet Isaiah. For me it brings to mind a promise from the Prophet Jeremiah. God has plans for us . . . something new that we can’t even begin to imagine.

Thus says the LORD:
Remember not the events of the past, the things of long ago consider not;
see, I am doing something new! Now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
In the desert I make a way, in the wasteland, rivers.
The people I formed for myself, that they might announce my praise.
Yet you did not call upon me, O Jacob, for you grew weary of me, O Israel.
You burdened me with your sins, and wearied me with your crimes.
It is I, I, who wipe out, for my own sake, your offenses;
your sins I remember no more.

"I know the plans I have for you", says the Lord.
