Supernatural faith is when we are in the flow of God’s heart and our heart. We are in the moment of realness, real life and pure truth. It is not about doing something. It is about being in truth what God is drawing up in our soul and heart. We don’t have to try or strain, we need only respond to what the Holy Spirit is releasing within us. It is not a skill or a character trait, yet we can learn to do it. First we must know God’s voice and the urging of the Holy Spirit. Then we must learn to trust God. And then we must learn to yield to God’s urgings.
Knowing God’s voice will come naturally as we spend quality time in conversation with the Lord. I say conversation because it involves listening as well as sharing our hearts in honesty. Honesty is key. Sometimes we will struggle with being honest because we don’t know our own heart. As we struggle to release our own hearts to God in truth, the Holy Spirit will help us. Step by step we will learn to hear and recognize God’s impressions and directions in our lives. It is a process that takes time just like an athlete get’s stronger with practice and a painter gets more precise with practice.
Trusting God is learned by obedience to His directions. It also involves knowing God’s voice and knowing God’s inspired words in Scripture. Jesus is the Word and the Word is God. This is why Isaiah 55 says that the Word that goes forth from God’s ‘mouth’ will not return void but it will accomplish that which He purposed and it will prosper in the thing it was sent for. This is tricky because most believers do not know God’s written word well at all. As we learn God’s written Word and His living words on our soul, we will slowly mature in trust because our heart will learn that ultimately God’s loves us more and better than any living soul is capable. Whatever the Lord says and directs is for the purpose of lifting our hearts with good news, with binding the inner wounds of our soul, to release those bound in sin and darkness so that they may experience the light and life of God’s goodness. While it is true that sometimes healing is painful and being released from our addictions is frightening, the end result is holy freedom and living life such as we’ve never lived it before.
YIELDING TO GOD’S URGINGS involves both hearing and trusting God. We cannot yield to what we cannot hear and our own conscience will not allow us to yield to what we do not trust. But when we trust God’s ultimate goodness then we can learn to put aside fears of what if’s, insecurities, and a lack of trust in ourselves. It isn’t about us. What God wants to live through us is His Love for us individually, for all people, and for His people, the Body of Christ. We are to be His hands, His arms, His eyes, and His mouthpiece. So, yielding to and obeying the Lord allows us to experience more of Him in special and particular ways.
Thus, as we like godly sheep recognize the Good Shepherd’s voice and respond to it with trust that the Lord does not deceive us (if we ask for an egg He does not give us a stone), then we will be living in moments of supernatural faith.
