Isaiah 43:19 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.
Do you know who Reed Hastings is? He is a man who rented a video from Blockbuster video and then lost the video for several weeks. When he finally found it, he returned it to Blockbusters and had to pay a $40.00 fee for being so late. On the way home, he thought there had to be a better way to rent videos. Several weeks later he took his idea to Blockbusters and they declined to even consider his idea. He is now on the Forbes 500 list as a co-founder of Netflix. That is how Reed tells the story, true or not, it has a powerful lesson to it. Why did the Priest refuse to recognize Jesus as the Messiah? Because He was doing something different than what they were doing. Why did they turn Him over to Pilate? To keep things the way they were. How did that turn out for them?
Sometimes to fulfill God’s plan for the world you must do something different. Will there be opposition? Yes. Should you let that stop you? No. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and know God will never let you fail when doing His work.
