March: A Season of New Beginnings

March: A Season of New Beginnings


In our lives, we often encounter seasons of change—moments when the familiar gives way to the unknown, and the path ahead seems uncertain. It is during these times that we seek reassurance, hope, and a sense of purpose. Isaiah 43:19 provides a powerful promise that resonates with the arrival of March—the month that bridges winter and spring, darkness and light. Let us explore this verse and discover its timeless significance.

Isaiah 43:19 – “See, I am doing a new thing!”

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

Unpacking the Verse

  1. God’s Faithfulness: The context of Isaiah 43 reveals God’s faithfulness to His people. Despite their waywardness and disobedience, God promises to care for them and provide. He had rescued them from Egypt, parting the Red Sea and leading them to safety. But now, a new chapter unfolds—a deeper layer of redemption.
  2. The Coming Messiah: Isaiah should also be read as a prophet of the coming Messiah. The rescue from Egypt becomes a symbol of our rescue from sin and death. The waters of the Red Sea foreshadow the waters of baptism. God’s salvation is not a one-time event; it continually unfolds in new ways.
  3. The New Thing: God declares, “I am doing a new thing!” This statement echoes throughout history. Jesus Christ, over seven hundred years later, fulfills this promise by dying for our sins and rising again. His return and the final judgment await us. God’s promises are not empty—they spring forth like the buds of spring.
  4. Perceiving God’s Work“Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” God’s work is evident all around us. Scripture reveals His truth, and events align with His Word. Our faith allows us to perceive His hand at work.
  5. Streams in the Wasteland: Symbolically, God promises streams in the wilderness—a transformation from barrenness to fruitfulness. The Holy Spirit, like living water, enables us to walk by faith and abide in Christ.

March: A Season of Hope

As March unfolds, let us remember this. Just as winter gives way to spring, God’s promises bloom in our lives. The wilderness becomes a path, and wastelands yield streams of grace. March reminds us that God’s mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).

May this month be a season of new beginnings—a time to perceive God’s work, receive His blessings, and trust in His faithfulness. Let us welcome the “new thing” God is doing, knowing that He makes all things beautiful in His time (Ecclesiastes 3:11). 🌱🙏

Remember: March is not just a month on the calendar; it’s an invitation to witness God’s renewal in our lives and others
