A while ago, I heard my Pastor preach a message entitled, “The Lord did that thing.” To me, it was amazing to find that phrase in scripture. Some of us use that phrase in slang if someone has done an extremely good job at something, but we would say “they did that thang!”
But in this particular scripture, it has a different meaning. God continued to send Pharaoh warnings through Moses to “let His people go”, but Pharaoh would not hearken to the voice of God. Because Pharaoh wouldn’t listen, God touched his cattle and caused a plague. All of Egypt’s cattle would die, and all of Israel’s would live. The appointed time set by God was for the “morrow”, the next day. Exodus 9:5(b) stated: To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land. And then we arrive at verse 6 where is states, “the Lord did that thing on the morrow.” Exactly what God said He was going to do and how He said He was going to do it came to pass. In this case, it was punishment for disobedience, but every “THING” that God declares He’s going to do isn’t always negative.
There are some “things” God has promised to you and to your children and at the time appointed by God He shall – He will, DO THAT THING!! I ask you on today, What “thing” are you waiting for God to do? What “thing” has God promised you? When He does it, you too can declare that GOD DID THAT THING!!!
