Greetings, David here.
This week we are focusing on the ‘extraordinary ordinary’ of life. In the film Dead Poets Society, the teacher John Keating (played by Robin Williams) has some amazing insights about making the ordinary the extraordinary. For him and his students it was all about seizing the day, the moment, and the authority to do the extraordinary.
Carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.
Anyone can walk in the extraordinary and the miraculous . If you’ve ever wanted to live and walk in the supernatural power of God, you have the power to activate this and begin today. All it takes is to invite the full force and weight of heaven to fall behind your life. This can then become the ‘ordinary extraordinary’.
It is truly possible for us to walk in the divine, and Jesus came to show us the way. It is by rediscovering our true identity in Him that we can begin to move into the promises of God regarding the miraculous. The supernatural can be imparted in us by changing the way we think, live and act.
If you are not walking in the miraculous, you’re living far below your birthright. It is possible to lay a carefully constructed biblical foundation for walking in the supernatural power of God. When you invite Heaven to invade earth you experience miracles every day, as miracles happen every day. All we need are eyes to see.
We all recognise the heaven to earth moments, where we know that something extraordinary has just happened but we have no words to describe it.
The act of Heaven invading earth can be summed up in Isaiah 61:1:
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.
God has sent Jesus on a mission. He has great news for us. God has sent Him to restore and release something. That something is you. He came to give us back our hearts and set us free. When we realise this freedom the full and mighty weight of heaven is behind us. Our job is just to do, there is no try.
Some questions for you:
1. What extraordinary events have you missed seeing this week?
2. What miracles (big and small) have you glimpsed?
3. What will it take for you to have eyes to see?
4. What annoys you about these questions?
5. How busy are you with being busy?
6. What is one thing you can do this week?
May you this week call out your future, do what God has given you. As you walk in this freedom, notice what you do with it. Notice what happens when The full weight and power of Heaven is behind you. May you this week carry out the will of God here on earth as it is in Heaven.
