WE CAN HINDER GOD BY THE PERSPECTIVE I AM JUST AN ORDINARY PERSON. I MUST SEE BEYOND THE PERSPECTIVE THAT I AM AN ORDINARY PERSON, BUT I HAVE TO SEE THE PERSPECTIVE OF AN EXTRAORDINARY GOD.

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

I do this in two parts.

ORDINARY:

So common to become boring. Norm.

REGULAR, CUSTOMARY CONDITIONS.

KIND OF EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

Psalm 68:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm or Song of David. Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

Illustration:

I get three or four people’s glasses, and then I give them back to the wrong person. We all see from a different perspective and different ways.

I am 6’2", my wife is 5’2" we see from a different perspective.

I see the top of refrigerators, my wife has never seen up there?

I. YOUR ATTITUDE WILL DETERMINE YOUR ALTITUDE!

WILL WE STAY HERE? IS THIS RUT ACCEPTABLE?

WHEN WILL WE CHANGE?

We will change when the PAIN OF STAYING THE SAME IS GREATER THAN THE PAIN OF FACING CHANGE?

A. RUT:

A recurrent state.

A TRACK WORN FROM HABITUAL PASSAGE.

A monotonous routine, fixed pattern.

Zech. 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.

B. PARADIGM:

Example, pattern, normal way of operation.

NORM ---

C. PATTERN:

Habitual, automatic, unthinking, reinforced behavior.

A form, model, imitation.

Reliable sample of traits, acts, tendencies, or observations of a person

D. PERSPECTIVE:

To look at, interrelation of subject mental view.

To establish a value system then ranks by importance.

The art of drawing in 2 dimension and seeing in the third dimension.

Mental view of relative importance of things.

Attitude, approach, outlook.

E. ATTITUDE:

Opinion or way of thinking.

Behavior reflecting opinion.

Position, feeling,

Mental position based on how one views the facts.

F. SOME SEE THINGS AS THEY ARE AND WONDER WHY ARE THEY THIS WAY? OTHERS SEE HOW THINGS ARE AND DREAM HOW CHANGE CAN COME ABOUT AND BRING A PARADIGM SHIFT.

G. WE CAN BE SO SATISFIED HERE, WE REFUSE TO STEP TO THERE?

Years ago 95% of all watches were SWISS MADE. The watches were mechanical, gears moving to keep time. For several decades all watches were made this way.

One day a man was dreaming and came up with a BETTER IDEA!

He invented the QUARTZ WATCH, the movement was not gears, the whole system operated much different.

The man flew to Switzerland and tried to sell his quartz, SILICON time piece to the Swiss watch companies.

They refused to consider this silicon idea, it was crazy, watches have always had gears and were reasonably accurate.

The leaders all agreed and rejected the idea.

The man flew to Japan, there was no established norm of producing watches.

Japan bought the idea, today 95% of our watches come from Japan.

These quartz watches are 1,000 times more accurate and durable.

Most of the SWISS WATCH COMPANYS are out of business.

WHY?

H. WILL WE ACCEPT TODAY AS THE NORM?

WILL THE RUT OF THE SAMENESS BECOME OPEN ENDED GRAVES?
