Do you ever feel just ordinary?
I love Vacation Bible School, and was blessed to be able to help out at two different weeks this summer. On the last day of one of the weeks, the team leader was talking about how they spent a lot of time on Moses throughout the week. At the end, he described how Moses was born as a regular guy, but God raised him up to do something great.
In the same way, many of us don't come from royalty or could even imagine doing anything really great. We plan our lives with the hopes that we'll graduate from college, get a good job, marry, and have children. How many of us aspire to do more? Think of the great heroes of the Bible: David, Joseph, Daniel, Joshua- they were all born to regular families but God brought them to places they never could have reached on their own.
The team leader for VBS then said that we too should expect God to do great things in our lives. Jeremiah 32:27 says "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?" We need to expect the impossible! God has big plans for each one of us if we're willing to trust Him.
We might be ordinary people, but we have an extraordinary God who is excited to blow our minds with His incredible plans for each of our lives!
