Personalize Isaiah 43:15-19

Read the passage out loud or silently to yourself. Insert your name where there are blanks.

I am the Lord, your holy one, ________,
 Israel’s creator, your king!
The Lord says—who makes a way in the sea
 and a path in the mighty waters,
 who brings out chariot and horse,
 army and battalion;
 they will lie down together and will not rise;
 they will be extinguished, extinguished like a wick.
Don’t remember the prior things;
 don’t ponder ancient history.
Look! I’m doing a new thing;
 now it sprouts up; don’t you recognize it, ___________?
I’m making a way in the desert,
 paths[a] in the wilderness.
- Isaiah 43:15-19 (Common English Bible)

Decades of Faithfulness

Pastor Harold Stinson was given The Upper Room as a child by his mother. He is now 71 years old and still reads the devotional guide every day but now in large print. He also hosts a daily prayer call and uses the scripture from the meditation as the basis for that call. 

Share the gift of faith by giving to the youth and young adult ministries of The Upper Room.
