Is It Possible To Live Supernaturally?

Updated on September 24, 2011

Living Supernaturally

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)
.
..
Wow! I wonder if Jesus really knew what we would be facing today? Of course He did! So what is getting you down? The economy? The political climate? The terror that is in the world? Jesus said that we should be of good cheer because He overcame it all.

You may be thinking, "well that's great that He overcame it, but do you know what I am facing right now?" It really doesn't matter what you are facing if you are "in Him." Our lives are secure in Him! We have all things that we need pertaining to this life through our understanding of How God works (2 Peter 1:3).

This is a time to get our faith more active than ever before. It is the time of the greatest victory ever known to man. This is the time that the Prophets of old looked to and desired to be in, but we are the ones chosen and appointed to this time.

Let me summarize a few things for you from the book of John. In the first chapter we can read that in the beginning there was the Word and there was God and these two were the same (read verse one). We know from our studies that God is Spirit therefore the Word is Spirit also, according to verse one because it "was God." Then Jesus said in John 6:63 that the words He spoke were Spirit and those same Words were life. In verse 14 of chapter one we read that the Word that was from the beginning became flesh. We know this as Jesus. From a study of these verses we have God, the Word, Jesus, and the Words that Jesus spoke and they are all Spirit.

What does this mean? If you believe in God (Spirit), accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior (Spirit made flesh), follow the Word of Jesus (Spirit) you have the capacity to live according to the Spirit. The Spirit is not subject to the natural. Therefore, just as Jesus overcame the world so can you and I. We don't have to be subject to the things that are going on around us if we learn how to operate according to the Spirit.

I entitled this article, "Living Supernaturally." The definition of the word "supernatural" from Websters 1828 dictionary is this, "Being beyond or exceeding the powers or laws of the natural." Prior to coming to Jesus we lived and conducted ourselves according to the limits of the natural (Eph 2), but when we get born again we are seated in Christ in heavenly places.

We have the ability to exceed the limits of the natural. This is what Ephesians 3:20 is talking about. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think. If the verse would have stopped right their we could all give a very big AMEN! However, Paul says a little more. He stated, "according to the power that works in us." You are going to have to live according to the Spirit within you instead of according to the natural around you. In order to do that you are going to have to get your attention totally and completely on the Word of God, get filled with His Spirit, and get your ear tuned to what the God is saying.

Don't live naturally. This world is too dangerous, the economy is too unstable, and for the most part our politicians aren't telling the truth. We must trust God and live above the realm of the natural.
