Normal vs. Typical

Living a normal life means trying to follow God’s ways instead of the ways of the world. God’s ways are normal and good; any other way is disobedient and sinful. This is especially challenging when we recognize how God looks at actions and events differently than we do. As seekers of Jesus, we need to take on a more Heavenly interpretation to the events in the world. Today’s devotional provides some thoughts that an anonymous author put together describing our discoveries in the normal Christian walk.

A follower of Christ looks at:

Death and thinks life

Losing and thinks winning

Tragedy and thinks opportunity

Brokenness and thinks humility

Accidents and thinks purpose

Coincidence and thinks destiny

Despair and thinks hope

Poverty and thinks wealth

Wealth and thinks poverty

Failure and thinks success

The seen and thinks about the unseen

History and thinks God’s story

Science and thinks God’s laws

Psychology and thinks Christ’s wisdom

Anthropology and thinks God’s image

Astronomy and thinks God’s Heavens

The human body and thinks God’s dwelling place

War and thinks man’s rebellion

The Cross and thinks everything made new

Truth and thinks Jesus

Paul tells us “For the message of the Cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18). The world sees things from a foolish perspective that can’t understand how trials and difficulties can be normal or part of God’s plan. It is only by His grace and through His Word that we can come to recognize what is normal and good versus typical and worldly.

From which perspective are you seeing the world? My prayer for you today is that you are able to view the world in a normal, Godly way.

In His love and service,

Jeff Myers
A servant of Jesus Christ
