EXPECT THE EXTRAORDINARY NOW
July 16, 2019
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1 NKJV).
I learned a long time ago that having the “now” kind of faith is what would bring the extraordinary into my life—and it did. And now, I’m challenging you to develop this same kind of faith. If you do, your life will never be the same, your existence will no longer be ordinary, and you will begin to live an extraordinary life.
The desire to live above the mundane is more than just a dream. It is a desire deeply rooted in God’s plan and purpose for your life—a plan that is exciting, challenging, and perfect for you.
Are you willing to break out of the ordinary and experience the life God intended for you? Are you willing to do what it takes to experience God’s best? If your answer is yes, then it’s time for you to press in and start meditating on God’s promises in His Word.
Forget the past, it is irrelevant. Your past doesn’t have to be your future. If you will change what you expect, you can break free from a pattern of defeat and experience the victory and success that are yours in Christ.
As you think on the great and wonderful things that God’s Word declares are yours in Christ, you will start to expect the extraordinary to manifest in your life. You will expect goodness and mercy to follow you all the day of your life (see Psalm 23:6). You will expect your enemies to be defeated before your face (see Deuteronomy 28:7). You will expect to triumph in every situation (see 2 Corinthians 2:14), and you will expect to be more than a conqueror through Him who loves you (see Romans 8:37).
I challenge you today to take the limits off of God. Expect Him to do for you what He promises in His Word. Break out of the ordinary, and experience the extraordinary life God has promised—now.
Confession: I refuse to limit God by expecting so little. God is good, He loves me, and He has an extraordinary plan for my life. I make the quality decision right now to mediate on the promises in His Word and expect them to come to pass in my life.
