God makes everything new

“I am making everything new,” says the Lord in Revelation 21:5. God is “the spring of the water of life” in the midst of thirstiness (21:6). It is exactly because of God’s ability to surprise with newness in the midst of barrenness that the writer of Revelation sees a new Jerusalem where we can now only see the devastation of the old. Unless, of course, we look with eyes of faith… Then we can see a reality in anticipation of God making things new. Are you able to patiently wait on the Lord… with expectation that He will make things new in your life? Are you able to look at a world of war, violence, corruption, deceit with eyes of faith that anticipate God to make everything new?
