Being naturally supernatural

This is a phrase we use to describe the way that ordinary people interact with our extraordinary God.  When God comes, He does whatever he wants to do and he does it in the way he pleases – we are stupid if we assume we can tame him to move according to our wishes.

God is supernatural and he does supernatural things.  The Spirit desires to teach us to live in alignment with him, to equip and empower us to engage in his supernatural movement with faith and expectancy, and without being weird, so that everyone can know him and experience life in all its God-intended fullness.

Our challenge is to be natural in how we respond to God as he does supernatural things, and to get to a place where we can use natural gifts and supernatural gifts in a symbiotic way, or in other words, move in and out of the use of supernatural gifts, alongside our natural gifts.


Jesus told them: ‘I saw Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning. I have given you the power to trample on snakes and scorpions and to defeat the power of your enemy Satan. Nothing can harm you’. Luke 10:18-19 (CEV)
