As we finish up our series, The New Normal, we have been highlighting many things that we experience when we become Christ followers that, before we were in Him, would’ve been considered strange. However, now we understand that they are part of our New Normal experience in Christ. As I mentioned in my last blog, this includes miracles, hearing God’s voice, seeing God move in and through our lives, experiencing His power and His presence, receiving blessings from Him, and understanding His heart towards us. These are all wonderful parts of our process.
But, the other side of The New Normal is that we are no longer in charge of our own destiny. The Bible says in Hebrews 12:2 NLT that Jesus is “the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.” In other words, our lives are now ordained by God. We have surrendered ourselves to Him, placed our destinies in His hands, and are trusting Him for the outcome.
