Living in the Supernatural
For some reason this title has got me thinking more and more about my faith. The more I dig into my Bible I keep reading the same stories of faith and God moving in some amazing ways. Here is the passage that hit me today:
21 At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind. 22 So he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. 23 Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.” (Luke 7:21-23)
It has me wondering and contemplating the movement of the Holy Spirit in this world today. I struggle with the lack of faith in my own life with things like the supernatural. However, I do know that God does move and I know that God is looking to transform people including a big guy like me. As I do ministry in my church and community what I want to see is the Holy Spirit move in some crazy ridiculous ways. I want to see the Holy Spirit invade lives with the message of Christ through me. I want to see people’s faith restored, life healed and even physically restored for the glory of God. So I go back to the passage and I ask myself the question…how can I help Christ and the Holy Spirit in this world today, right now even as I sit at Starbucks? What I sense is that Holy Spirit is going…..yes….going to move in FAITH. It is faith that restored a blind man, it is faith that healed a women with a blood issue, it is faith that forgave a woman in a sinful life, it is faith that saved me.
So maybe I need and we need to work on faith to live in the supernatural. The supernatural can happen and it can happen through faith in what the Holy Spirit is doing in this world. If we believe so much in what the Word tells us and we believe so much in faith that God can transform anyone then why not believe that and make a difference in the world.
Ok God, help my faith….help it grow…beyond the capacity of this worldly view and into an eternal viewpoint. I come to you humbly asking for you to transform this big goofball that I am into an even bigger faith-filled, Spirit-led, redeemed man of God. I submit to Your authority and to Your ways. I ask you to move in faith. Lord it doesn’t matter if I am leading, preaching or worshiping…I just want to be in the room when you are moving.
