Today's Confession: I expect the extraordinary in my life in 2012. I dare to believe that God can do it in my life.

I am expecting God's best this year. Are you? Today, I want to talk to you about extraordinary. Did you know that God wants to do extraordinary things in your life? He does.

Let me share with you a word that God gave me back in October 1998. Although this was a few years ago, I believe it is still relevant to what God wants to do in our lives today.

In October 1998, I heard the Spirit of God say this: "Beginning in 1999, I will do for you what you've tried to do yourself but could not do. I will cause to come to pass those things which you've strived for and tried to accomplish in your own strength and in your own might but just could not make it happen. I will bring them to pass for you. Extraordinary things will become the norm in your life. Things that never happened to most people in a lifetime will happen to you in one year's time. It's time to expect the extraordinary."

I believe that is a word from God for all of us. God is saying that we need to begin to look for the extraordinary.

Since God said that extraordinary things would become the norm, I decided that I'd look up the word extraordinary in my dictionary. Here's what I found. It means "beyond the common order, beyond the common method, and beyond the common course of things." The second definition I found was "unremarkable, uncommon, and rare." To me that meant that God was saying, what once was rare is going to become the norm.

God was telling me that breakthroughs in prayer, in finances, in healing, and in restoration of relationships that were once rare, were going to become common – not only in my life, but in the lives of the entire Body of Christ who would dare to believe for them.

Habakkuk 1:5 says, "Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously; for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told to you." God was saying that He was going to do a work so marvelous, so wonderful, so extraordinary that some people would not be able to believe it.

Acts 13:41 says, "Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you." The Amplified Bible says it this way, "even if some clearly describing it in detail declares it to you." The fact that God said this both in Habakkuk's day and in Paul's day leads me to believe that God is saying this to every generation.

When God makes statements like this, we need to realize that it's time for us to stretch our faith, stretch our imaginations, and think bigger than we've ever thought before. God wants the extraordinary to become the norm in your life!
