Your Unremarkable Days

Monday April 24, 2017

This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. -Psalm 118:24

After the creation of Adam and Eve, we learn about the fall, we learn about Cain’s murder of Abel, and then we are provided only genealogies with a few historical remarks until we get to Noah.

Hundreds of years pass between Adam and Noah, and some centuries pass between Noah and Abraham.

Besides the flood account, the only things the Bible tells us about those years are a few events regarding Noah and his sons, more genealogies, and the story of the Tower of Babel.

Then with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and the patriarchs Genesis begins to give us a lot more information.

However, there are quite a few days that passed, that God decided to not record.

What was God doing during all those unremarkable and unrecorded years?

Were they throwaway years and disposable people? No, of course not!

Today may be unremarkable, but it is not unimportant. It is unique, priceless, and irreplaceable.

Every single day was a unique, priceless, irreplaceable creation of God.

Every single person was a unique, priceless, irreplaceable creation of God.

Each person played a role in the Story whether for good or bad, and each had a meaning to God, even though they lived and died anonymous to us.

Many wasted their lives, but God did not waste theirs.

God was not wasting time or people during these unrecorded days. He was holding all things together by the word of his power every moment, and he was working in every detail of history and human experience.

Let the unremarkable years of Genesis speak to us.

A few days of your life are remarkable, containing events and experiences where you see God with clarity and faith.

But the vast majority of your days will pass unrecorded and irretrievable to your memory.

Even though today may be unremarkable, it is not unimportant. It is unique, priceless, and irreplaceable.

God does not waste a day, and he will not waste you.

Today, God is at work in you to advance toward completion the good work that he began in you.

God is at work in every detail of your history and experience.

God does not waste a day, and he will not waste you.

If you love and trust him, you will one day discover that today, unremarkable as it now seems, will do you remarkable good.

Prayer: God, thank you for working in my seemingly unremarkable days. Help me to trust you in the mundane. Help me to realize that you are always working on my behalf. In your name I pray, Amen.”
