There is a reality of a Supernaturally Empowered Life. The story of the woman in 2 Kings Chapter 4 reveals a lot to us about that. However, the supernatural life comes with conditions. My prayer for you is that you will walk and increase in that life. How will you translate your reality with God among men? You need to understand that:
The manifestation of anything spiritual requires a body. Revelation is God’s responsibility while manifestation is man’s responsibility. The manifestation is always lesser than the revelation. Your responsibility is how close you can make the manifestation measure up to the revelation.
How much you manifest is your responsibility. That woman with the pot of oil did not receive all that God brought for her. Also, Peter- when Jesus asked him to drop his nets into the sea. Most people fail in the presence of God and that is why they don’t manifest all of God for their lives. When you get it right in the presence of God, don’t expect that the manifestation will be automatic.
The things of God will always work IF YOU WORK IT!
Don’t attempt to do for yourself what the Lord should do supernaturally. Recognize that you don’t have control over the supernatural, but you always have control over the natural. It is not the supernatural which you cannot control that determines your manifestation but the physical that you can control. Every instruction of God to a man makes him a world-beater if you obey it fully. If Peter and his friends had come with 10 nets as opposed to one, it would all have been filled. The instructions of God turn you into a wealthy man. Our wealth is not physical, it is connected to an instruction which is connected to a power in the spirit.
The supernatural never finishes but it can stop.
It will stop where human obedience ends. What divine instructions are you currently neglecting, violating or obeying? The woman in our text obeyed but didn’t obey fully: the instruction was to “borrow not a few”. Till Jesus comes, there will always be divine instructions for you to obey. God doesn’t ask you to understand them, He wants you to obey. If you are a kind of person who wants to understand before you obey, you will not go far with God.
Let your physical and visible life be a direct manifestation of His instructions, and that way, He will be obliged to back you up.
Lastly, if you seem lost, always go back to the last instruction you were sure God gave you. Trace your way back and you will always find God.
