THE NEW!

Hi people!
Long time no see.

Forgive me…..would you🤗
Been dealing with navigating my current state and let’s just say I’m finally getting the hang of it.

If you follow me on Instagram, you would see that my birthday posts were all about THE NEW!

I’m sure you must be wondering what THE NEW is all about. Did I get a new car, a new vision or maybe a new boyfriend 😂

I’ll get right into it.

I was studying Isaiah 43 from verse 18 with a friend in July and I took time to study it and really define all the terms and it was mind blowing.

‘“But forget all that— it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. The wild animals in the fields will thank me, the jackals and owls, too, for giving them water in the desert. Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland so my chosen people can be refreshed.’ Isaiah 43:18-20(NLT)

I taught on New Birth in a group a few weeks ago and it was an amazing time sharing with them about all the privileges we have as new creatures in Christ and all that awaits us in the new.

It was beautiful and coincidental that “The New” was the theme for my new year(my birthday). So when I wrestled with “The New Birth” as a topic, I realized that I could tie both of them together and then I begun to write. I’ll share a snippet of the conversation I had with my friend in July.

Isaiah 43:7,11,18-19

[18]Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old.
[19]Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
[12/09, 1:19 pm] Tobifusika💃👑: I took time to define the terms in verse 19
[12/09, 1:19 pm] Tobifusika💃👑: And 18
[12/09, 1:29 pm] Iyin: Perceive it. Know it. Give heed to it.
[12/09, 1:29 pm] Tobifusika💃👑: Do not earnestly remember
[12/09, 1:30 pm] Tobifusika💃👑: I will even make a way

Like I defined the words one by one
He was just blowing my mind

[27/09, 03:18] Tobifusika🤗: Don’t consider the things of old
[27/09, 03:18] Tobifusika🤗: I Googled the words earnestly and consider
[27/09, 03:19] Tobifusika🤗: Even behold 😭😭
[27/09, 03:19] Iyin: Hmmm
[27/09, 03:19] Tobifusika🤗: Even behold – – like to hold something that’s about to become
[27/09, 03:19] Iyin: Hmmm
[27/09, 03:19] Iyin: Hold it tight!
[27/09, 03:19] Tobifusika🤗: I Googled springs forth
[27/09, 03:19] Iyin: Okay
[27/09, 03:20] Tobifusika🤗: Do you not perceive it and know it and will you not give heed to it
[27/09, 03:20] Tobifusika🤗: To perceive
[27/09, 03:20] Tobifusika🤗: When you perceive, you know what it is even before you see it
[27/09, 03:21] Tobifusika🤗: Obeying it after perceiving. Not after seeing it🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌
[27/09, 03:21] Tobifusika🤗: I will even make a way in the wilderness
[27/09, 03:21] Tobifusika🤗: I Googled even
[27/09, 03:22] Tobifusika🤗: To even something is to make it equal
[27/09, 03:22] Tobifusika🤗: How can you even a place that has no road
[27/09, 03:22] Tobifusika🤗: I Googled wilderness
[27/09, 03:22] Tobifusika🤗: The first thing they’ll write is a place where nobody passes🤣🤣🤣
[27/09, 03:22] Tobifusika🤗: He now said he’ll make a road there
[27/09, 03:23] Tobifusika🤗: He’ll make rivers in the desert😂😂😆😆
[27/09, 03:24] Tobifusika🤗: Rivers and Desert😂😂
[27/09, 03:24] Tobifusika🤗: They have no business
[27/09, 03:24] Tobifusika🤗: Like where would the water start springing from
[27/09, 03:24] Tobifusika🤗: A place that’s completely dry
[27/09, 03:25] Tobifusika🤗: Dry wasteland😂
[27/09, 03:25] Tobifusika🤗: Please google dry wasteland
[27/09, 03:25] Iyin: Okay
[27/09, 03:25] Tobifusika🤗: Let’s know the real meaning
[27/09, 03:25] Tobifusika🤗: Their definitions don’t match what God would do out of them
[27/09, 03:27] Iyin: A barren or desolate land
[27/09, 03:27] Iyin: Not or no longer in use
[27/09, 03:27] Iyin: a barren or desolate area of land, not or no longer used for cultivation or building
[27/09, 03:28] Tobifusika🤗: He’s going to make a river from this 🤦‍♀🤦‍♀🤦‍♀
[27/09, 03:28] Tobifusika🤗: The Bible is the book of the impossible

The Bible is really the book of the impossible!

I studied this and I was convinced that there is absolutely nothing too hard for God to do. As I write this, I’m dealing with the many thoughts in my head. I want out of my current season more than I want to embrace the lessons here but I’m learning too that I have to be properly prepared for THE NEW. The rushing won’t break but prepare me.

I hope you enjoyed reading this. What part of the chat got to you? Please leave a comment below.

  1. Really insightful blog Sis! God bless you for always sharing.
    Well, the part of your conversation with Iyin that hit me was the wilderness part. “Wilderness as described in the dictionary shows that it’s a place where nobody passes, but our God that makes Impossibilities possible, said he’ll make a road there. I got to understand that it doesn’t matter what the world has said, when God speaks everything is settled 😊

  2. Hello Tobi. First time here and this is quite interesting to read. Wow! You really took time to dissect that scripture. Haha. Well done!
    About seasons. Girl! Tell me about it!. I’ve been through seasons in my life that I thought I would die if the new season didn’t come quickly. But I thank God for how much he did in me and for me. We may not see it, but He’s working and moving. He’s making all things beautiful and new. He’s restoring us within.

    Like you said which I’ll just reiterate here, “I have to be properly prepared for the New. Like! God must have worked on us in the previous season to be able to handle the new so we don’t misuse it.

    Thanks a lot for sharing!
