God first told Eve she was going to give birth. No more creation of human beings from the dust of the earth.
Not too many years later, two brothers fought. The older brother envied the younger’s style of worship. As a result, Cain killed Abel. The spilled blood cried out to the Lord.
The clouds assembled, then the downpour started. Water was falling from the sky. Noah’s generation saw rain for the first time.
After the flood, a rainbow appeared, and God made a promise to Noah and his sons. “Never again will I destroy the whole earth with water.” God kept his promise to Noah.
Generations past, the Lord told a man to leave his kinfolk. By doing so, God said, “I’ll make you a great nation.” Abraham obeyed God. Years later, this man and his wife, Sarah, became parents well past the childbearing age. So was the beginning of the Jewish nation, Israel.
Fast forward to the dominance of the Roman Empire. An angel informed a teenager she was about to have a baby. She said, “How can I? I’m not married.” The Angel said, “The Holy Spirit will overshadow you. Nine months from now, you will give birth to a son, Jesus.”
No more animal sacrifices. No migrations to Jerusalem. Now believers can worship in a nearby church.
Christians who let God lead their lives also experience new things. It’s a faith thing. When God directs our lives, he does something different by changing our direction or desires in life. He plans to use each believer to bring glory to him. We do so by being faithful and making ourselves available.
