Unprecedented

Unprecedented:  never done or known before.

Synonyms: unheard of, unknown, new, novel, groundbreaking, revolutionary, pioneering, epoch-making; unparalleled, unequaled, unmatched, unrivaled, without parallel, without equal, out of the ordinary, unusual, exceptional, singular, unique; and lastly I would like to say impossible situations made possible.

Things that take years to build –years to achieve now come unraveling right before you because God is showing up and showing off.

If I were to explain what is happening in this moment most would say “This is highly unusual!” “This is just not normal!” “Stuff like this just doesn’t happen!”

But God…

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

It’s been nice, real nice to be in these days. In the sacrifice I can see God’s supernatural. I had been through such a series of downfall after downfall. In the professional area, in ministry, relationships, emotions, my health and any attempt at trying to progress.

I can see today why this occurred. It’s one thing to preach and another to live through that preaching. So many sleepless nights have passed, tears unseen and cries unheard. God kept His eyes on me the whole time.

God never sends the promise while we are strong. He sends them when we have been weakened like CRAZY! So that way when we come to see the impossible we have no doubt but to declare how He does things in unprecedented ways!

Eternal One: My intentions are not always yours, and I do not go about things as you do. My thoughts and My ways are above and beyond you, just as heaven is far from your reach here on earth. Isaiah 55:8-9 (VOICE)

He did it in unprecedented ways!

I didn’t realize when this moment would happen. I cannot say when I want the curtain to be moved and for me to finally be effective when many have surpassed me in one form or another. Especially the ones nearby…the ones close to home. The ones close to the heart.

I said to God–“What about me?”

Okay I can say I screamed so much– “BUT WHAT ABOUT ME!”

When all the doors are closed and you don’t ever see a way for it to happen. Things don’t happen when we want. When we kick and scream. On our timeline or schedule. They never happen how we expect but in ways we could have never known and at times we could never pinpoint.

Then God says NOW! Now I will do it.

When I was put down to nothing. Again. And again. And again and again. I tried everything I could and still –nothing happened.

What I learned is this:

When I became powerless! God has shown, He is all-powerful!

NOW He moved. He made a way. He called me. I responded. He answered me above and beyond what I could imagine. He blessed and blessed and blessed and blessed and blessed! When He saw it fit for me.

In every empty moment, He kept providing. In every gap, He filled it. In every thing that couldn’t move, He REMOVED it. And when I came down to none, He kept showing He was the ONE and only that could ever do it.

He did it in unprecedented ways–again and again.

I am thankful.

I am fully grateful.

My heart is filled because I allowed it to be emptied of everything I knew to make room for the things He has always known. As we approach a new month, I am entering in victoriously no matter what. God is working on my behalf in those unprecedented ways. ♥️ It’s lovely.
