Naturally Supernatural

It is interesting to see how many people are interested in the unexplainable, undeniable, workings of a higher power. We in the church world know that often times the crazy happenings are nothing more than God revealing His power to the world He created. People are healed, marriages are put back together, and angels show up just in time … the list could go on and on.

The word supernatural by definition means: adjective (of a manifestation or event) attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature: a supernatural being.• unnaturally or extraordinarily great : a woman of supernatural beauty.

Really it is a cool word. What is interesting to me is that it isn’t a bible word.  It is a word we have concocted to describe the indescribable. But the bible never uses this terminology. The reason being, it is completely natural for miracles to happen when God and believers are present. What we think is extraordinary, the early believers viewed as a natural by-product of their God and their faith. It wasn’t supernatural. It was natural. They saw miracles daily and expected them daily. It would be supernatural for nothing to happen, and natural for anything to happen.

I hunger for our church to flow into a realm where we view the manifestations of God’s power as just natural every day occurrences. To get to a realm where we aren’t surprised when God answers our prayers immediately. Entering a realm where we just believe that we were intended by our Maker to see miracles every day.

Naturally supernatural.
