Extraordinary means: “Beyond the common order, beyond the common method and beyond the common course of things.” Another definition is “Remarkable, uncommon or rare.” If you’ll believe God, what was once rare in your life is going to become the norm.
However, some people have trouble believing this – not only today but in Habakkuk as well as Paul’s day. Habakkuk 1:5 tells us, “Look among the nations and watch – Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you.”
God’s still saying “I’m going to work a work in your day that will be so marvelous, so wonderful, so extraordinary, that some will not be able to believe it, even if it’s clearly described to you in detail!” When God makes statements like this, we need to realize that it’s time to stretch our faith, stretch our imaginations and think bigger than we’ve ever thought before.
It’s time to forget the past. Isaiah 43:18-19 says “Do not remember the former things; neither consider the things of old, Behold I am doing a new thing…” God’s saying it’s going to happen and you can expect it to come to pass in your life or, you can just hear about it happening to others – which do you want?
To live an extraordinary life, you must learn to confess “I’m living in the realm of the extraordinary.” The question is “Do you believe He is able to bring the extraordinary to pass in your life?” God’s will was, and still is to heal people and make you wealthy; however, they aren’t healed automatically or become prosperous just because it’s His will. People have to take responsibility to receive their healing or finances.
If you’re going to see the extraordinary become the norm in your life, you must take responsibility for expecting God’s Word to come to pass. Not only for yourself, but so He can use you to be an example for others to see His goodness, and reveal how much He loves you. He wants to bless you with an extraordinary – rare, uncommon or remarkable – lifestyle to get the attention of other people and draw them near to Him to change their lives as well!
Today is the day to expect the extraordinary to manifest in our life!
