Living an Extraordinary Life

This weekend I was able to receive the same topic in two different sermons. The theme was that God is still in the miracle business. I whole-heartily believe that this is true. Do you?

The same God that parted the seas, brought the dead back to life, fed the many , and defeated death is the same God you and I serve today.

At church the pastor stated, “ You must have FAITH in God “ in order for the miracle to be completed.

This same statement was repeated in an on-line sermon that I viewed. The question was asked, “ Do you have Faith in God?”

Let’s stop and think – What does having Faith in God actually look like?

Is it hesitating?  Or maybe thinking through all the steps?  Maybe it is asking others what they think you should do?

No- Having Faith in God is as easy as:

1- Listening
2- Obeying

In order to receive miracles in our life to live an extraordinary life we must have faith that the miracles will be completed. We must believe that God is in the miracle business. We must believe that what ever God has said will happen, WILL happen.

As Christians, we can live extraordinary lives because we serve an extraordinary God.  We must have an extraordinary relationship with God. We should seek him in his word, fellowship, and prayer. We should invite him to live within us. We should listen to what he has to say and then follow through with the directions he gives us.

God gives us power- God gives you and me POWER.

Matthew 17:20
New International Version (NIV)
20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

You can tell what ever problem you face to “Move from here to there,’ and it will move.”

Anger- Moved
Jealously- Moved
Communication Problems- Moved
Stress/Anxiety- Moved
Health Issues- Moved
Trust Issues- Moved
Money Problems- Moved
Substance Abuse- Moved
Fertility Issues- Moved

Speak It and Believe It !

I know God was speaking to me- That I can live an extraordinary life if only I have Faith in him. That I should follow what he leads me to do. I hope that this message allows you and your spouse to live an extraordinary life as well. Have faith in God. Grow closer to him in prayer, the word, and fellowship with like-hearted Christians. I encourage you to Pray together and Seek God together if you are seeking your “Loving Lasting Marriage.

If you do not know Jesus as your personal savior but would love for him to be apart of your life , please visit this post .
