God is a God of the ordinary. He does the miraculous through ordinary means. He uses ordinary people and simple methods to accomplish his divine goals. In some mysterious way, God decides to work in and through things that would otherwise seem very average.
Paul writes in Corinthians, “But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.”
God is the in the business of choosing the simple, ordinary, everyday things to do his miraculous work. While we are often interested in looking for the super-natural miracles, we often miss the everyday kind of miracles. We look for the sudden cured disease and miss God working through doctors and surgeons. We look for God’s audible voice or a dream and we miss God’s speaking through simple words on a page.
