UNPRECEDENTED EVENT

Memorise: And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Mark 4:39

Read: Genesis 21:5-7

5 And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.
6 And Sarah said God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.
7 And she said Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck for I have born him a son in his old age.

Bible in one year: Jeremiah 30:1-31:30, Acts 20:36-21:16

Message

An unprecedented event is an extraordinary occurrence that was never known or experienced before. It’s something of monumental importance happening for the very first time. Unprecedented events are very rare, but I pray that you will soon testify to an unprecedented blessing in your life in Jesus’ Name. The Bible records so many unprecedented events in its pages from Genesis to Revelation. Notable among these are Noah and the deluge (Genesis 7), the deliverance of the Israelites at the Red Sea (Exodus14), the sun standing still over Gibeon and the moon staying in the valley of Ajalon (Joshua10:12-13), the virgin birth of Jesus, the raising of Lazarus from the dead after four days (John 11) and the resurrection of Jesus (Mark 16:9-10), to mention but a few.

Unprecedented events are usually in the realm of the miraculous. God in His infinite mercy always designs these supernatural events to meet human needs and solve our problems. Such miracles include divine provision, deliverance, divine healing, raising of the dead, miraculous birth etc, and usually bring about disbelief, laughter, astonishment, singing, dancing, amazement, great fear, thanksgiving and celebration. Very soon, God will do something in your life that will amaze your detractors and cause you to celebrate in Jesus’ Name.

In Genesis 22:16, Abraham’s actions caught God’s attention and called for a special blessing.

“And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:”

It’s easy to see that beneficiaries of unprecedented events are history makers. A close look at each of these characters, from Noah to Abraham, Moses, Joseph, Joshua, David, Solomon, Elijah, Daniel, Esther, John, Peter, Paul and our Lord Jesus, to mention but few, reveals a common pattern in their lives. Everyone of them exhibited uncommon faith, humility and obedience that moved God to arise on their behalf. God considered them fit for such miracles because they tried to do what nobody had done before. If you are looking forward to receiving an unprecedented miracle in your life, you must be prepared to outdo others in your commitment to God, in total submission, obedience, soul-winning, sacrificial giving, faith and true worship.

Prayer Point: Father, please give me the grace to do something great that will call for an unprecedented blessing in my life in Jesus’ name.
