We are Ordinary People with an Extraordinary God (#wtsdevo everydaypeople)
Read: Joshua 6:20
Reading the Bible, you won’t find many high-profile individuals or those that were famous doing the work of Christ. Rather, you will read more about ordinary and everyday people being called to be part of the mission of God. When everyone started off in this journey, not one of them were completely equipped enough to do what God required them to do. Some good examples include Joshua - who was told to conquer a city with nothing but a band of trumpets and Peter definitely didn’t have anything to support himself when Jesus called out to him to walk on water.
Similarly, the moment we start to focus on God and all that He can do for us in our lives rather than on all that we are not, we will start to see and experience the presence of God and His works touching our lives - giving us the strength to pursue our purpose and the mission that God had set out for us. The journey isn’t going to be without its ups and downs but no matter the season, we need to hold onto our faith and accept all that God provides us with.
As we grow through God in this manner, we soon become a relentless force in a society where Christ isn’t in the forefront. Let us be Christians who share and build faith with those around us and have them experience the amazing power of Christ just as we have.
