From Ordinary To Extraordinary

God is a God of creativity because He is the original creator. All we have to do is bring  our needs, hopes, dreams, pain, fears and our abilities over to God and He can do something that is above what we can do.

Webster’s meaning: Ordinary:1of a kind to be expected in the normal order of events : routine, usual. 2a: of common quality, rank, or ability

Webster’s meaning: Extraordinary: 1agoing beyond what is usual, regular, or customary. bexceptional to a very marked extent

The way God does things is not boring. I am amazed by Him using me for almost two years with the blog. The way God put a thought in my mind to watch Esther on Netflix  and then instructed me to fast. While I was sleeping, He gave me a dream to do freelance writing. Researching freelance writing,  the idea of a blog jumped out at me.  I asked my writing adviser what I am I going to write about? After speaking with my writing adviser, she asked me what are you passionate about? I told her I like to encourage people. After that, the phrases started coming out of nowhere.

The word of God says His mercies are new every morning. I love living a life of  faith in God, Jesus His way of doing things is not like everyone else.

1 Peter 2:9-10 King James Version: But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

As people of God, we are not like others. We are royal. We are people of light. We are peculiar (which means we don’t do things like others usually do). We are chosen. We are holy (which means our lives are dedicated to pleasing God) and  we have the mercy of God. If you have not accepted Jesus into your heart, it is time to join the family of God. Your life will never be the same.

Jesus did something extraordinary with the miracle at the wedding in Cana

John 2 :1-11  Jesus, His mother Mary and his disciples were at a wedding in Cana of Galilee. When they ran out of wine  Jesus mother Mary  said “they have no wine.” Jesus told his mother  that it was not their concern and that the time is not yet. Then Mary said to the servants “whatever He says to you do it.” Then Jesus told them to fill the water pots with water. They filled the pots to the top of the brim as instructed. Next Jesus told them to draw the water out and bring it to the feast. When they tasted the water it was wine. After the people were satisfied the master of the bridegroom said “everyone contributed wine but yours is the best.

Jesus took something ordinary and made it extraordinary.  Notice that Jesus’ mother Mary brought her situation to Jesus. He told her the time was not yet so she had to be patient. Then mother Mary said whatever He says to you do it. Then she obeyed what Jesus said and received what she came for.

God wants us to come to Him and trust Him with our entire life. He wants us to be patient until He gives us what to do. When God tells us to do something, we should obey immediately so we won’t miss our opportunity to receive.

Read Isaiah 55. He Tells us to come to God and listen and you will eat what is good. You can come to God without money. His ways are higher than our ways and thoughts are higher than our thoughts. 

We come to God because He is the Creator. He knows how we are designed.

I love the gospel group with Fred Hammond and Marvin Sapp  called Commissioned; the song is titled “Ordinary Just Won’t Do”

I love this verse :

Lord I need a special touch
That will mean so very much
Close friends they don’t seem to understand
Problems in your life
So complexed you say who can comprehend
Tragedy when you need relief
Only Jesus Christ can supply your need
Sweet and gentle touch
That will speak a word of love and mean so much
The ordinary just won’t do
I need someone, Lord I need someone
That someone is you

That someone is you

The ordinary just wont do
I need a love that’s pure and true I
Can always find it in you Jesus
The ordinary just wont do I
Gotta have a touch from you I
Can always find it in you Jesus

That song sums it up.

From Ordinary To Extraordinary!
