New Things Are About To Happen
“So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.
– Genesis 6:14-16 (NIV)
God always loves doing new things. His creative nature constantly moves Him to work, and as His children, we also have the creative grace. We all need to be believers in this grace. It matters.
Notice how Noah responded to a new task even though nothing like that had been done before. Notice also that even as God gave the vision and task, He also gave the direction and plan. He even provided the resource, so all Noah had to do was follow the plan.
I believe that in this journey to the Mountain Top, God will set us all up on the path of creative and innovative exploits. I believe that God has an unusual task for each of us. I know He wants us to break new grounds, doing something that has not been done before.
I believe there is a pioneering grace available to us today if we can only stir up faith to connect. Yet the grace won’t be enough… We need to be willing to ask Him for the project, the pattern, and the provision to finish the job. Be expectant.
Don’t go about like it’s an ordinary day or season. Don’t just waltz through life in a ” business as usual” mode. You need to look around and listen up to God’s Spirit. You must birth something new and uncommon this season.
Noah built the first ship and shocked the world at the time, all by following instruction. I’m excited at what God will accomplish through you, dear friend. (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.)
Dear God! set my feet on the path of creative and innovative exploits, break me into new and higher grounds. Show me the pattern and the provision. May your name be exalted in my life in Jesus Name I pray. Amen
