Supernatural

by Dana Peters-Colley

For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit o the man which is in him?… Now we have received …the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. 1 Corinthians 2:12-13 NASB

What if supernatural was the normal? People fantasize about it all the time. The fantasy Marvel films have personified the supernatural for decades. But why do people want to be supernatural?

First, we are made in the image of God. We are created from dust. And God created the dust from nothing, too. He spoke and it was. And is.

Yet how easy, with the modern world bringing its deception with every news broadcast, we are deceived into believing this world is the only reality. It may speak with authority, but its message is not the truth. Jesus wants us to recognize He is the Truth. What Jesus says in His Word is the Truth. We chew on His Words and come out filled with power and hope. We find and discover Him.

And here is the second point as to why we are supernatural. We are born again through Jesus Christ our Savior. This means we are re-created into a new being. When we are born again, we  will feel the difference. We will sense when things aren’t right and be uncomfortable until we correct course. That spiritual wisdom comes from the Spirit of God living in us.

Those who are born-again believers are supernatural right now. We have been retooled. Reformed. Remade.

Originally, we were created in God’s image. But we have been bought back through Christ’s blood and thus, have been given even more.

Why would God make us supernatural?  

You have been given an assignment, and only you can complete it with the personality, desires, and character that only you possess. You need the supernatural to assist you to abide in that life.

Those opportunities do not have to be big. They can be the small encounters we have each day that make us One in Christ. It’s listening with the new spiritual senses and abiding with the Maker of the Universe, who through His Son, retrieved us from a dead world. It’s praying and being close to our Maker. It’s reading and devouring the Word of God and being transformed by it. We will be new in every way to accomplish what He has given us to do.

So, today, surrender everything to your Maker. Follow all of His ways. And put some supernatural on. Listen for Jesus to guide you. Enjoy the way the Comforter lives within you. And rise up, saints, to be all that God has created you to be—His special – and yes, supernatural kid.

Be blessed my friends.

  1. Dana, I have often pondered about how I love movies with “supernatural” themes. I think that longing for being enabled with wisdom and power is what God put in our hearts: “eternity in our hearts.” No, we don’t become gods at any point, but as the Scripture you used shows, we do have the Holy Spirit in us to enable us. Thank God He doesn’t expect us to be perfect. Thank you for sharing, Dana.
