"But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do a brand-new thing. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness for my people to come home. I will create rivers for them in the desert!"
Forget all that is being done among the Dong; forget all the projects to accomplish what we feel needs to be done; forget all our plans for what the Dong need. The Lord is doing a brand-new thing, his thing, his way.
He will create a pathway for the Dong to come home, a pathway to lead them through the wilderness. And in that desert, they will find the one thing they do not expect, but need the most: rivers, flowing from the river of God.
Father, help us see it! You say you have already begun, but we just cannot see it and want so much to be a part of what you are doing. We want to find your rivers and pray that the Dong will find them too. Use us as we pray, use us to lead the Dong along this pathway back home, home with God, now and forever.
