Walking in the supernatural realm of God’s power soaks believers in the promises of Christ. In such a realm, believers are able to partner with the Holy Spirit to perform miracles.
Have you ever asked yourself why Jesus Christ told his Apostles that they were not ready even after spending three full years studying under Him? Asking this question opens your eyes to the realities of God’s Kingdom. This was obviously because they had not yet received the supernatural power of God in their lives. They needed God’s power which comes with the anointing of the Holy Spirit to be complete and ready for the task that awaited them.
Receive the Holy Spirit
The three years of teaching from Christ prepared their minds to be receptive to God’s spirit and power. God has a special calling for each of us. This is a life calling that God wants us to know and pursue. This call can only be answered by rejecting self-reliance and bringing God into the scene. Successfully answering the call requires his spirit and supernatural power over our lives. This was the approach of the Apostles which we have to embrace during our own days.
Here are the five amazing secrets to tap into the supernatural power of God through Christ in answering the spiritual call on our lives:
Mark 11:23-24 – “I assure you that whoever tells this hill to get up and throw itself in the sea and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. For this reason, I tell you: when you pray and ask for something, believe that you have received it, and you will be given whatever you ask for.” (Good News Bible)
Faith is the key that opens the supernatural realms within which we can benefit from God’s power in ways beyond human understanding. That’s why is important to start your quest for spiritual power by cultivating faith in God. Faith is the evidence of things not seen and the substance of things hoped for. It is all about taking God for His Word without doubting in any way. It is the certainty that all God’s promises will come to past no matter the contrary situations that come our way.
Jesus Christ started with prayer and ended with prayer. He taught His followers the importance of prayer and how they could pray. As Christians (Followers of Christ), we’ve been called to follow His footsteps. In as much as He prayed without ceasing, we are also called to embrace a prayerful life. It is our duty to pray at all times and bring all things before God. A prayerful life will give us the strength to overcome the challenges of life. Prayer moves God’s hand and releases His spirit and power into our lives for the accomplishment of His will.
Completely surrender yourself to God for use
If you are serious about experiencing God’s supernatural power in your life, then you’ll need to let go and let God work. By completely surrendering your life to God, you are actively following His supreme lead. Abraham abandoned his own plans and surrendered to God’s lead. He became the Father of many nations. In the same light, we are all called to surrender our life directions into the hands of God. This is a call for us to give room for God’s will to be done in our lives.
Be motivated by love
The Word of God is clear on the fact that a person who does not love does not know God. In our quest for spiritual power, love should be the foundation of everything that we do. Power is something that can easily lead to pride and self-inflation thereby calling on God’s anger. In order to overcome such feelings, we need to learn and practice genuine love for God and one another. The command of Christ is that we love our neighbors as we love ourselves. It was the love that Christ had for mankind that led to the defeat sin on the cross at Calvary. Love makes us receptive to God’s power and anointing for greater purposes.
Desire spiritual gifts with passion
Anyone who is serious about tapping into the supernatural power of God must earnestly desire and pursue spiritual gifts with passion. The New Testament reveals that spiritual gifts were released when Christ ascended to Heaven. They are for the edification of the Church and the spread of the gospel. Pray and ask God to reveal your spiritual gifts so that you can take them to maturity and bring glory to His Holy Name.
