GOD IS IN THE ORDINARY

HOW DO WE EXPERIENCE GOD IN OUR NORMAL LIVES? 

 

John 2:6-10 NKJV
On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, “They have no wine.” Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it.  When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom. And he said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!”

As we can see in the above verses, Jesus was able to work in the supernatural using simple, ordinary, everyday elements. In the same way, He is able to turn our limitations and challenges into miracles.

Many times we have false expectations about how God talks to us but He reveals Himself to us in simple ways. In the story about the Samaritan woman in the Bible, while talking to Jesus she told Him about the coming of the Messiah, not knowing that Jesus was the Messiah and was standing next to her. Let’s not miss out on incredible God moments just because we have a different idea of God’s revelation.

It can be the prompting of your spirit, it can be a thought that suddenly comes to your mind. When we do hear God’s voice, it is key to pursue what has been spoken to you.

Whatever is hindering you from moving forward, be open to hear God talk to you in your daily situations. Then you will be able to overcome your obstacles and live a life that is supernatural.
