When the Extraordinary Becomes Ordinary
Read Habakkuk 2:14
The world wasn’t lacking examples of God’s glory. God’s glory was all around Israel, just like it’s all around us. Everything we find beautiful in nature — from the mountains to the beach — was made by God and points to how magnificent He is. The problem was a lack of awe for the God who made everything they depended on.

- Is there any area of your life where you’ve allowed yourself to become more captivated by something God created than by the Creator Himself? How has that affected your awareness of God’s presence around you?
- Is there any area of your life where you’ve grown so used to the extraordinary that it’s become ordinary? How has that affected your awareness of how God provides for you?
- What’s one way you can pause and acknowledge God’s glory today?
Removing idols from our lives doesn’t have to take the destruction of nations. Rediscovering our awe starts with the choice to give God credit and honor for all that we are, all that we have and all that we can do.
