I sat in my truck in the parking lot of my dentist’s office. My appointment was still about ten minutes
away so I decided to check my email on my smartphone. As I scrolled down through
the emails, I noticed that I had received an email to fill a larger than normal
order for one of my books. These books
will be sent to all the personnel who are part of a global missionary

As I
typed out the order, I stopped to realize what I was doing. Here I was, typing
out an order for books on a handheld device that was only a fantasy a few
decades ago.  My email would be sent over
the wireless Internet to a commercial printer who would produce my order via a
computerized printing machine and then make sure it arrived on time at a
distant out-of-state destination.  The
order transaction took me a total of two minutes to complete. The printer would
have the books printed and shipped within a few short days. I was amazed at the

looked upon his printing machine and the first Bible he took almost five years
to complete.  In each epoch of human
history something special is present and happening for those who have the eyes
to see.

extraordinary life.  He has things He
wants to do in you that will amaze you when they happen. Resist the numbing
presence of the status quo and your own personal doubts because they can blind
you from seeing the unique nature of this moment in your history.  Something extraordinary and wonderful is
planned to take place in every life and in every generation. Once you realize
these extraordinary possibilities still exist, you will look at this moment in
your personal history with different eyes.
