Naturally Supernatural - Four Simple Things You Can Do
Once believers learn that God is still as real and present today as He was during bible times, we suddenly get a strong desire to experience that “bible times” presence and relationship for ourselves. The biggest problem is that all things considered, that topic of conversation or teaching does not happen in most churches or bible study groups. Mostly in churches that know this truth, you might get a somewhat brief acknowledgement to the spiritual or supernatural things of God, but they are still learning just like you.
The desire is there however… Every time I would hear some testimony of God’s power being on display, I would get excited and jealous at the same time. (a Godly jealousy) I was happy for the person but looking for the same things in my own life.
When I finally got a serious breakthrough into the things of the spirit, it was like the door was opened and there was no going back. An avalanche of Heaven invaded our lives and our home and increase begat increase. The more we saw, the more we desired it and the more we desired, the greater the manifestation of God’s presence in our lives. But what exactly was going on? Did we learn some special mystical truth that few people knew? Was there some ancient phrase or extra-biblical instruction we followed? No. We were doing very simple things as steps of faith as the Lord led us. Things anyone could do if they so desired.
I have written about these things and spoken of them in fairly great detail but this isn’t some thing you have to memorize all the pieces of before you get breakthrough. If you take a few simple steps of faith, you will see breakthrough in the things of the spirit. A key, a very important key is this… How much does it mean to you?
Ask God for those things you desire. I know, this is a no-brainer right? The key here is that you must be like the woman who wearied the judge by all her knocking. Ask and ask and ask and knock and seek. If I asked the lord once during the day for breakthrough into spiritual things, I asked Him 200 times. I’m NOT exaggerating. Ask God with a passion.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7 NKJV)
Fill yourself with powerful encouraging testimonies One of the staples of my evening encouragement was YouTube videos and programs that featured over the top testimonies about the manifestation of the power of God. In addition to watching It’s Supernatural every day, (archived programs etc.) I would load about 10 to fifteen programs on my computer set to play an angel or supernatural testimony. I would move from the first through to the end watching one testimony after another and then do it again. Don’t laugh! Is this overkill to you? What I was doing was regenerating my mind to conform to the normalcy of supernatural living being our possibility.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. (Colossians 3:2 )
Stay in the Word. The word of God is powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. The word will accomplish things in your life that you don’t even realize in the moment. The word is a springboard of testimonies into the supernatural of God. Look at every testimony as a template for your own life. Staying in the word and seeing the healings and deliverances and visitations will remind you what the life of a believer is supposed to look like.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 KJV)
Spend Time Waiting Upon the Lord. We have to get to the point where we are listening to the Lord more than we are talking. He KNOWS the desires of our hearts. Setting aside time every day to spend time waiting on Him to speak to us, or just spending time in His presence is something you will never regret. Make time with Him a priority. What do you do while you wait? Think about His goodness or His faithfulness. In the silence, worship Him in your mind/spirit, and look with expectation for Him to honor His word.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (James 4:8 NKJV)
As you take these simple steps of faith, keep very much in mind that the journey, the entire journey is Christ. Seeing Christ formed in you… becoming Christ-like… Fulfilling His call upon your life… The truth is that if we truly keep the main thing, the main thing, the things of Heaven we desire will be manifest as we take these steps of faith. Make a decision, be passionate about what you decide and pursue God with all your heart.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33 KJV)
