Is God Supernatural? I believe just about every believer would answer this question with a “YES! Of course He is!” The idea of “God” is supernatural. The miracle of creating a baby to some is supernatural, but that’s not really what I’m alluding to… I mean… does God still do supernatural “weird” stuff like he “used” to do in the Bible?
I started this blog in January will full expectations of blogging once a week, but I haven’t blogged in exactly 1 month and I think I know why. Every time I pray about what to write next, I feel the Lord has told me “I want you to tell everyone about me and who I am”. One word… Daunting. I believe I have been avoiding this blog like the plague. This will likely take a while to write as I type through all the emotions. So… here we go to places most do not know about.
I grew up believing God loved me, but I never knew He talked to me, nor did I ever see anything “supernatural”. I take that back, in high school I saw some people in Belize on a mission trip, in a church, in a fit of laughing hysteria. I had no clue what was going on, I don’t remember getting an explanation for it, nor did I ever ask. But I believe now, that was my 1st experience with crazy supernatural stuff. I believe it is what the book of Acts calls Drunk in the Spirit and God was ALL about that!
I believe God speaks to many people through dreams and my amazing hubby is one of them. I don’t dream very often, but he does ALL THE TIME. (I’m a little jealous)
Supernatural Experience #1. In the summer of 2011, one morning I messaged Jorge and told him I was ONE day late (I hope you know what that means). Jorge proceeded to tell me that the night before he had been awoken to an audible voice that said Liliana Sophia. (These were the two names we liked if we ever had a girl). Jorge said it was the “weirdest” thing, but that he immediately turned towards me, placed his hand over my stomach and started praying life over my belly. (I don’t think we had ever laid hands on each other in prayer, so it was definitely a strange occurrence). Needless to say I told him to get home ASAP with a pregnancy test. He did… and two lines showed up. WOO HOO! However, one week later I began to bleed and went to the doctor who confirmed what I believed had happened. A miscarriage due to low progesterone. Jorge waited a few days to share with me the following: About 3 days after I had tested positive, he had had a dream that my body was some sort of vessel and that he saw a baby being taken out of the vessel. Sounds a little creepy and I struggled for months with this asking the Lord why He would give Jorge a baby name and then a not-so-nice dream. A few months later I began to ask the Lord so many questions and although I don’t feel I need to share the details of what He told me, the most important is that He gave my heart peace and I knew that when a baby came again I would need supplemental progesterone.
Supernatural Experience #2: In August 2011, Jorge and I embarked on a journey that would FOREVER and COMPLETELY alter our lives. We began the Convergence School of Supernatural Ministry here in Fort Worth, Texas. One of my very FIRST supernatural experiences led me to realize that God REALLY, I mean REALLY cares about the itty bitty things in our lives. We always started out school with an hour of worship. As I sat there, I was talking to myself (in my head) about the severe pain in my neck and how that evening I was going to ask Jorge to try to massage it away. (End of conversation in my head). A few minutes later I moved a few chairs down to sit right next to a friend named Grace. After about 30 seconds she jumped up, looked me straight in the face and said, “Don’t Move!”. ummm… ok. I didn’t move. She walked behind our row of chairs, came behind me and started massaging my shoulders and neck. WHY in the world would she have done THAT? God. HE WAS EASE DROPPING on the conversation I was having with MYSELF! I was totally and utterly UNDONE. But God… He knew what it would take to open up my heart to all the incredible things He wanted to continue to do in my life…. that He cared about IT ALL.
Supernatural CRAZY experience #3… next blog post.
The word SUPERNATURAL is scary. Why? Because it’s OUT OF OUR CONTROL and out of our comfort zone. We say we trust God, but when it comes to Holy Spirit… often times we don’t let Him in. I never used to… mainly because I didn’t know how. The Bible says we are to do GREATER works than Jesus did. But how can we without the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit? Many say the supernatural ceased with the prophets… where does it say that in the Bible? I haven’t been able to locate it. And frankly, now I don’t want to. Life with Holy Spirit is so much more fun and exciting, and yet, I have never felt so at peace along-side all the chaos of the world.
When we are in His will, it is the safest place to be.
Psalm 91:2 says: I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” If we trust Him, I mean REALLY trust Him, we will ask Him to show us ALL of Him, not just the parts we like.
**Just because YOU haven’t seen the supernatural, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. I don’t believe God is hunting us down to show us the supernatural. Rather, I believe He wants us to chase after Him no matter what it looks like, no matter where it takes us, and to ask Him for ALL of Him. If you want to see the supernatural, find out where God is showing off and go see for yourself. I bet you’ll find out more about God than you could ever imagine.
Do YOU have a story? I believe God wants you to share your story too. He is good. 100% good. Event the crazy supernatural stories of Him reveal His goodness. Share them here or let me know where your blog is!
