I'm not sure if you're NORMAL!

For many Christians disappointment has taken over as the most time consuming event in their 24/7 existence! I know, that is a pretty potent statement, but it is still true. But that is normal for most beings living on this fast turning green ball. The sad fact is; what we see as normal has nothing to do with what God thinks is normal for His followers!

Disappointment has a lot to do with trying to find contentment or purpose in the wrong things... then even if we accomplish those things, there is no lasting fulfillment in them... So the answer for the follower of Christ is seeking God's will for our life. Here is where real contentment comes!

When we become a Christian, God rewrites our spiritual DNA... now contentment comes in the form of hunting for purpose, grasping revelation, and an appetite for the impossible becoming possible by faith!

Whatever has been the norm in the past, must now be redefined by God's supernatural standard of "normal"!

"Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these other things will be added..."Matthew 6:33

This scripture should be the "NORMAL" experience for all Christ followers, and when it is, I believe we will experience less disappointment and more fulfillment... What say you?

Blessings, Karl

  1. I absolutely love the idea of redefining normal... that's something that many Christians, myself included, forget to do on a regular basis. Am I living according to what my new normal should be? A good check for me. :)
