Something God has never done before

This week I’m part of a mission team helping Greenbrier County WV recover from this past summer’s flooding.  This morning in leading our devotion, David said when he was asking for something in prayer that he heard God say, “you’re asking me for something I’ve never done before”.  David said he was taken by surprise thinking he could have asked for something, and there could be anything, God has not done before.  When you think about all that God has ever done, it is shocking to think there’s anything He has not done before, even though we can quote God in Scripture saying, “Behold, I am doing a new thing…” (Isaiah 43:19).

When David closed in prayer he said, “God, help us to realize today is not an ordinary day…”.  While he didn’t explicitly say it, what I heard when I combined the devotion and the prayer was that ‘today’ was something God has never done before. Today is January 3, 2017 and it is a day God has never done before and will never do again.  And when you think of it that way, you realize there are no ordinary days, even if you’re doing an ordinary thing.  Today is something God is doing that He has never done before.
