Everyone dreams of living an extraordinary life, of being an extraordinary person. But, when the moment comes to put on those extraordinary shoes and walk that extraordinary path, we often find ourselves shrinking back.
We second guess. We self-examine. We sell ourselves short.
The greatest enemy of the extraordinary is fear. We fear the cost of the extraordinary life. We doubt whether or not we are the right person for the extraordinary job. We wonder if God will pull through for us if we really step out on that extraordinary limb.
In Hebrews chapter 11, we see a beautiful picture of the courage necessary to embrace the extraordinary.
By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. — Hebrews 11:23 (NIV)
It is my sincere prayer that you will find the grace to see the extraordinary in your life and pursue it unafraid. God is doing the extraordinary all around you, and He is inviting you to participate with Him.
- In your church.
- In your spouse.
- In your children.
- Through your gifts.
- Through your passions.
- Through your prayers.
- At your workplace.
- In You.
May you see by faith that you are living no ordinary life, and may you be not afraid.
