OVERCOMING ADVERSITY Pt 3
3. SEE THE SUPERNATURAL IN THE ORDINARY
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you recognise the extraordinary ways that God is working in all of the ordinary, everyday situations; and even the difficulties in your life.
Every day, pursue holiness, because as you do you’ll become stronger and better able to overcome your challenges.
Holiness is simply letting every aspect of our lives bring glory to God.
When Jesus is included in every aspect of our lives we will naturally bear good fruit because we are abiding in the vine. From Him comes purity, goodness and fruitfulness bringing Jesus glory.
It is so easy to miss the wonderful works and gifts of God if we are focussed on the negative and drudgery of life. When we complain, life takes on a dreary bleakness that slowly drains away our joy and faith.
Take time to acknowledge God’s beautiful creation around you.
The blessings of your family and friends, your home, community and all that God has given you.
Even in difficult times, try see at least one good gift from God.
Be thankful and as you focus on the good things, you’ll see more blessings coming into your life.
This is part of living in, and experiencing the supernatural.
Miracles happen when we put God at the centre of everything.
Ask God to take His rightful place on the Throne of your heart.
This will give Him access to your life, empowering and strengthening you. As you practice spiritual disciplines such as prayer, Bible reading and worship, you will find the ability to overcome every obstacle in life.
Each day approach life with faithfulness and passion to discover and fulfill God’s purposes for you, being confident that God is with you every step of the way. When we see the world through God’s perspective it becomes a fascinating place. One that gives us insight and wisdom into every situation, challenge or obstacle.
Christians DO, and should, see everything differently to how the world views life. We have spiritual insight and God’s guidance, wisdom and presence. Start living this life as an amazing adventure filled with supernatural power.
“Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
“We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know Him who is true. And we are in Him who is true by being in His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.”
(1 John 5:20)
“For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power.”
🙏 “May you experience the presence and power of God in your life today, and I pray the everyday mundane issues will be infused with the supernatural; giving you a glimpse of eternity”.
