God of the Ordinary

Recommended Posts

Hearing testimonies about how God did something spectacular in someone else's life can challenge us. While we may rejoice to hear about answers to prayer, we may also wonder why God Hasn't done anything amazing for us lately.

 

It's easy to think that if God showed up in astonishing ways for us like He did for Abraham, then we would be more inspired to be faithful servants of God. But then we remember that God showed up for Abraham every 12 to 14 years, and most of Abraham's journey was rather ordinary (see Genesis 12:1-4,15:1-6, 16:16-17:12).

 

God's work is usually done behind the scenes in the ordinary things of life. As our text says, "He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out" (1 Corinthian 10:13). Every day God is busy shielding us from devastating onslaughts of Satan that would otherwise leave us helplessly defeated. And when temptation hits, He is making exit ramps for us so we can escape.

 

When we put our head on the pillow at night, we should pause to thank God for the amazing things He has done for us that day in the midst of our ordinary lives. So, instead of longing for Him to do something spectacular for you, thank Him! He already has.
