How to Walk in the Supernatural Naturally

Supernatural-Holy-Spirit-smallSimeon was righteous and devout. What distinguished him from other people who were righteous and devout was that the Holy Spirit was with him. This seemingly ordinary man was living a supernatural life simply because the Holy Spirit was on Him:

Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him”(Luke 2:25).

Gilian made the point that the Bible makes no reference to the word supernatural. He said that the supernatural was simply a byproduct of the presence of the Holy Spirit in one’s life. It is the same Holy Spirit that supernaturally impregnated a normal teenager named Mary. It was also the Holy Spirit who visited the ordinary and normal men and women on that fateful day of Pentecost.

It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah” (v. 26).

Making the supernatural normal is not about being weird and mystical but about having a relationship with a person—the Holy Spirit. It's meant to be a relationship that is intimate enough that you can hear Him and get day to day seemingly ordinary revelations from Him.

Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required” (v. 27).

Walking in the supernatural is not about acting and behaving in extra natural ways but is about being so relationally intertwined with the Holy Spirit, a relationship so intertwined that He is able to move us in the right direction.

The supernatural walk is not always predicated by the mysterious and bizzarre but is about meeting ordinary people like two parents and child and know that something supernatural is going on. Walking in the supernatural is to be able to see through the lenses of Holy Spirit and see that in the midst of very ordinary circumstances God is able and ready to move in and through us supernaturally.

Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: 'Sovereign Lord, as you have promised you may now dismiss your servant in peace'” (vv. 28-29).

Ultimately, walking supernaturally is aligning our lives to God and declaring, “I choose to put my life under your sovereign will whatever that may be.”

Action Point: Cultivate a relationship with the Holy Spirit. He is not a force, power or a wind. He is a person. He desires that we remain sensitive to Him so naturally that we would walk everyday supernaturally.
