People are quick to believe in aliens, magic, the paranormal but say they don’t believe believe in God or that Jesus raised the dead, made the blind to see, turned water into wine. Well, aren’t all of those things ‘supernatural’? So, again, do you believe in the supernatural? I do, I believe in the Bible and it is chock full of the supernatural. God is supernatural, angels are supernatural, we, in fact are supernatural. Gen. 2:7 “..God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.” That sounds pretty supernatural to me. When I was a kid, I made people with popsicle sticks and mud, they never came to life.
Anyway, my point is that if you believe in the paranormal, physics and magic, why not the supernatural power of God Almighty? Where do you suppose that power comes from? I’m amazed at how people will believe that some entity or power can move objects across a room, turn lights on & off, but refuse to believe that God can heal their body, open doors for them to prosper to care for their family. Jesus did all those things and more, he told us that He passed that power on to us, that we have that power in our tongues through His name. John 14:14 “Ask anything in my name and I will do it.” Of course you would have to believe in God to believe the Bible, but if you believe in magic and the paranormal, how can you possibly not believe in God? because you can’t see Him, you say; because I prayed for something and He didn’t answer, you say; or the bible was written by men, you say. Or, here is the best one yet, if there is a god who loves us, why is there so much suffering in the world?
Ok, you can’t see Him, you can’t see the air you breathe but you still believe it’s there, correct? You prayed and did’t get what you asked for, well, you asked your mom for plenty of things that she didn’t give you, did you not? Not everything we ask for is appropriate, or our place to ask, or our time to receive, maybe the answer was given but you just didn’t like the answer. That doesn’t make God any less real. The bible was in fact written by men, so was every book ever written, yet people believe many of them, unquestionably, except the bible. Lastly, God gave mankind dominion over the earth when He created them, when Adam disobeyed God, he gave away that dominion to satan. When Jesus, (God in the flesh) came to the earth, died and resurrected, He bought back the dominion for mankind. We, (mankind) allow the suffering to happen in the world. By not exercising our proper authority over the earth, we allow satan to rule and run havoc. God has given us the power and authority through His Son Jesus to rule. If you believe what I just said then you can rule over your own world and be happy, healthy, and prosperous. I invite you to read the bible, get to know the supernatural God who created you, invite Jesus into your heart and enjoy the life He came to give, that of abundance!
These are my thoughts, I welcome yours.
