This week, I received a “God surprise’’, and it got me thinking how important it is to expect God in your ordinary day to day.
Here's something else to chew on, we also need to expect that God can and will use you and me in the ordinary circumstances of life. Just like He did with the disciples.
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus. - Acts 4:13
You don’t need a title by your name, a degree or a certain income for the Lord to use you. God can do the extraordinary through you right where you are!
As we enter into the summer months, expect that the Lord will do something EXTRA – ORDINARY in your life and use you for His extraordinary purpose!
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. - 2 Corinthians 4:7
Have a blessed and safe Memorial Day weekend!
