EXTRAordinary JOY!

                Have you had your JOY JUICE today?  It’s no “ordinary offering”!  When God puts His blessing on your special serving, you will be amazed at the JOY it will bring!

                 This week we’ve been discussing words that begin with the letter “O” that describe God.  The word for today is “ORDINARY”!  Of course, God, Himself is never “ordinary”.  However, throughout the scriptures, we find example after example of how God takes ordinary things…including people… and uses them to accomplish His will.

                Let’s look at just a few of the ordinary things in scripture that God used:

  • In Exodus 4, God used Moses’ ordinary staff to perform miracles before Pharaoh.
  • In Joshua 6, He used ordinary trumpets to flatten the walls of Jericho.
  • In 2 Kings, God healed a man of leprosy by telling him to wash in the ordinary river 7 times.
  • And we all remember the story of Jesus feeding the crowd of over 5000 with five ordinary loaves of bread and two ordinary fish.

The lesson here is that even when we feel “ordinary”, God can use us!  Anything and anybody can be used by God if we are dedicated to Him for His purpose. 

JOYfully give yourself totally to Him and get ready to see how He can take the very “ordinary” and turn it into an extraordinary masterpiece which overflows with JOY!
