Hungry for the Supernatural

We live in an era of technological advancement that is almost “supernatural” when our capabilities in modern times are compared with the ancients. It isn’t even surprising to anyone that we can verbally and visually communicate with people on the other side of the world via Skype or similar means; we can predict weather and even begin to try to alter it with science; we have medical advancements that cure previously deadly diseases. But despite all our amazing abilities, people everywhere are hungry for more power over the natural world and in their daily lives within it.

The evidence of this hunger can be seen in the astronomical number of Harry Potter books and DVDs sold in every corner of the world; it is evident in the frenzy over new “Twilight” series releases; television programs about ghosts and near-death experiences are exponentially increasing in popularity. So, what is driving all this interest and need for supernatural experiences in our natural world? The answer is in the basic human need for control over our circumstances, environment and destiny. People are always striving to be the master of their world.

It would be so great if we could just wave a magical wand over a problem and have it disappear or be solved. We could transport ourselves from place to place without cars or planes; poverty and hunger could be solved in an instant if only we were as magical as J.K. Rowling’s characters. I believe we truly are capable of experiencing and directing supernatural events in our natural world, but witches and wand waving are a false supernatural when compared with the amazing, wonderful and powerful forces of Heaven.

God, who loves us with an everlasting love, endowed us with His own supernatural powers though the extension of Himself here on Earth through Jesus Christ. And Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit of God, performed miracles of wonder on a daily basis. He healed the sick with a touch or a word; he transformed substance such as water into wine; he walked on water; he raised the dead! Jesus embodied the supernatural as his natural state of being, and he wanted us to do the same after his resurrection from the cross. He left us with the Holy Spirit to continue the work that he started.

You don’t need a wand and an incantation – you only need to make a commitment to Jesus as your Savior and Lord over your life; the infilling of the Holy Spirit is a result of that commitment, and with that Spirit comes the power to perform miracles. Signs and wonders, healings, provision and resource to live an abundant life will follow. The prayer of salvation is not complex…it is a simple confession that you are imperfect and that you welcome Jesus and the blood he shed for you on the cross into your life…it’s that easy: John 3:16 "For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life."
