The term itself seems to imply “normal” or “expected” as though that is the goal to which we should all strive to achieve. Ordinary is a “badge of honor” to some. They do not want to stand out in the crowd. Really? Who really wants to be a “clone” or just like the rest of society? Anyone can do that. As a matter of fact, it has been done over and over for generations.
In reality, no one is ordinary. We are all:
1- Different – The Bible says we are uniquely made. That means we are all different. From our personality, physical make-up, and giftedness. Not only are males and females different; each male and female is different. Different is not bad, it’s good. It is the real YOU! No need to be a duplicate of someone else. They do not have all the qualities you already have. See WHO God made you and be all of that person you can become.
2- Designed – In planning humanity, God had you in mind. He saw the “when and where” of history He would insert you. Think about it, out of thousands of years of man’s existence, THIS is where God placed you. Your environment, abilities and liabilities are all part of God weaving you into existence, and more importantly, His Sovereign plan.
3- Destined – God not only made us unique, He also planned out our existence. If you believe in God, you must believe that He is in control. If He is in control, you should see His hand working in your life. When we fight against Supernatural things happening in our lives, we are not being “ordinary”, we are being disobedient. We should want to finish the path God has placed us on with victory.
So what should you do? Don’t settle to:
- Live beneath your potential.
- Fit into the mold of your peers.
- Let your dreams die.
In the end, you will see God had a plan all along, and YOU were a part of it!
