Open Hands – Devo #5

We have here, boys and girls, another song that is going to require nothing but a posting of the lyrics.

Devo #5: “Extraordinary”


Today’s song is about how extraordinary God’s love is.  What a great way to start a Friday, am I right?  Remembering just how extraordinary our God is!  So I’m just going to leave these lyrics here for you, and in every moment you feel ordinary today…remember that you aren’t.  You can’t be!

“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…’.”

Genesis 1:26, ESV

We are created in the image of our extraordinary God.  Which means that we, by extension, are extraordinary!  Claim it.  Own it.  Be it.  Now enjoy this song.

And also…
Love each other.

No eye has ever seen
No ear has ever heard
The fullness of Your love
And the kindness undeserved
This mystery of grace
I cannot comprehend
That You would call me child
That You would call me friend

You are extraordinary
In the way You love
In the way You love me
You find me when I’m weary
And You lift me up
In Your arms I’m carried
My heart is overwhelmed
Your affection rushing in
You are extraordinary
In the way You love
In the way You love me Lord

I see it in Your heart
Your passion for the lost
A love that knows no bounds
Enduring any cost
I see it in Your life
Given freely on a cross
That You would pay that price
That I might gain it all

You are extraordinary
In the way You love
In the way You love me
You find me when I’m weary
And You lift me up
In Your arms I’m carried
My heart is overwhelmed
Your affection rushing in
You are extraordinary
In the way You love
In the way You love me Lord

And I know my words will never be enough
To thank You Lord for Your extraordinary love
Yet I know my words will never be enough
So let my life declare Your extraordinary love

You are extraordinary
In the way You love
In the way You love me
You find me when I’m weary
And You lift me up
In Your arms I’m carried
My heart is overwhelmed
Your affection rushing in
You are extraordinary
In the way You love
In the way You love me Lord”
