TD Jakes — Shattering The Norm
If you could just get back to normal. There's nothing like normal. Zacharias is trying to hold on to normal, and this prayer on the outside and this prayer on the inside and normal has become all that they have left of God. I'm in the place where things happen but I no longer expect anything to happen. You see, routine can kill expectation. When you pray, you expect God to show up. And the text blows my mind because the very thing they were asking God to do he did, and it shocked them. God stepped in the synagogue, his house. The Master came to his house and the people who were praying for him were shocked. When I was preparing this message, the Lord told me he's getting ready to shock you. You've gotten so used to business as usual that you say stuff, but you really don't expect them to change. But God is about to shatter your normal. Let me tell you why it's gonna shatter. He heard you.
