How to be Natural about the Supernatural

To Jesus, the supernatural was as natural as breathing and eating.

Like him, we need to expect the supernatural and not be afraid of it. I’m preaching to myself really.

Perspective

The maker of the universe is our Father, and He gives generously to those who ask.

Matthew 7:11 states, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”

He is supernatural. By His Spirit, He lives within those who believe and surrender. Therefore…

We can expect and believe for the supernatural in our lives. Whether it is healing, finance or relational, GOD does work in all those who allow, and often even through those who do not believe.

Engaging

So, how we shall we engage with God on a deeper level? With regard to the supernatural, shall we walk, expectant of miracles and uncanny surprises?

Whether Jesus calmed the storm (Mark 4) or walked on water (Matthew 14), filled water jars with wine (John 2) or raised a dead child (Luke 8), there is no remark about his hesitation or lack of belief.

So let us be like him: Fully surrendered, ever-prayerful, absorbed by the Father.

Waiting

Jesus said he only did those things the Father called him to do,

“I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of theFather who sent Me.” (John 5:30)

So, let us wait on the LORD GOD, ask and wait, to see His deliverance and the miraculous. Let us wait upon the LORD, and see what He will do.

Expecting

We live in an era of fast-everything: fast food, quick fixes, easy communication. But the Father will not be rushed. His timing is perfect, and so waiting does mean waiting, often for a long time. Abraham was 99 when his promised son was born. Moses was 40 years a shepherd before God called him to return to Egypt and rescue the Hebrew people from slavery.

God answers prayers. We can trust He will use us as He has promised. In the meantime, we will expect, wait, engage, and grow in wisdom and patience as we seek His perspective.

Finally

If we walk as though we are tall, we will grow in stature. If we talk with confidence, we will be believed. Within us, the GOD of the universe has equipped us with His Spirit. Let us walk, knowing He resides in us, so we are ready to follow direction as it is given.

Then, in His perfect time, we will see the supernatural increase in our lives.
