Out of the ordinary

Posted: April 28, 2017 in Uncategorized

30 days of worship.

Day 5

Ordinary: usual, normal, standard, typical, common, accustomed, everyday,regular, routine, traditional.

Whilst I continued to press into the presence of God this morning, I felt something that did not feel ‘normal’

As I dig deeper spiritually, my body tries to shake off what does not feel normal to it and this is because the presence of God becomes so strong and evident. If this was something that I did regularly, it would begin to feel normal. I have decided to allow what seems abnormal become normal. I crave it, I want this feeling to be something  I am accustomed to.

I do not serve a standard God. My God is not average and in order for me to witness something different I must get out of my routine, stop praying and seeking in the name of tradition and push past average thinking.

I no longer crave the ordinary but I am motivated and I am willing to open my spiritual to my extraordinary God.

I started the beginning of this week asking for so much but for the last two days I have had so much to be thankful for.

In order to press past what seems normal, I am willing to worship out of my comfort zone as I crave to venture into a place that is accessible but has been denied by my flesh for too long.

‘My spirit was willing and my flesh was weak’ but now I feel my spirit awaken and I am drawn into a state of worship which is clearly something that is pulled from a sense of hunger rather than that of routine.

To be ordinary is not what I have been called to do.

If ordinary was what God intended us to be our stories, our testimonies would not have the scent of an extraordinary God.

I pray we don’t sink into a normal state of mind and miss out on living extraordinary lives through an outstanding powerful God.

I pray that the abnormal becomes our normal and our habits, traditions and routines are let go so we see God our creator.

I pray we begin to see such an outpouring of the spirit in our lives that to crave the ordinary would seem crazy.

I pray we go far beyond that which our physical eye can see and our minds can even dream and we press into a place so astounding that others sense the presence as we live our daily lives.

I am not ok with ordinary and I am going to do something about it. I pray you do too.

Have a blessed evening
