PRAYER GUIDE, LIVING IN THE SUPERNATURAL, 29.11.18
Teach me to live my life in the supernatural, for You have given us all a supernatural Helper, and He is with me always (John 14:16,17), a most holy and awesome gift.
Thank-You, Heavenly Father, that by the Holy Spirit I have the potential to enter into that exclusive supernatural position of oneness from the day that I received Jesus/Yeshua into my life: “In that day, you will know that I am in My Father, you are in Me, and I am in you” (John 14:20). You have “raised us up with You and seated us with You in the heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua” (Eph.2:6). Thank-You, Father, for this unmerited privilege and honour.
Teach me to live my life according to the Ruach/Holy Spirit, and set my mind on the things of the Ruach/Holy Spirit (Rom.8:5), for I long to “dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under Your shadow” (Ps.91:1), that supernatural place You have so graciously provided. Let me walk in that “supernatural dynamic through prayer, faith, and obedience” (Duewel, 1990, p.111). I will go deeper into a walk of prayer; deeper into a walk of surrender; and I will be victorious.
I long to experience Your presence daily, still more fully, communing with You as my best friend, trusting, sharing, depending on Your presence for every breath. That is supernatural living; and that is my desire. Empower me by Your Spirit, and let me nail to the Cross all self-reliance, self-sufficiency, and self-focus, that I will not try to do any of this out of my flesh (which of course, would not be supernatural) any longer. I must get rid of all my flesh so I can live the supernatural life, for “we do not owe anything to the flesh . . . . if we live according to the flesh, we must die; but if by the Ruach we put to death the deeds of the body . . .” (Rom.8:12,13), for “The heart is deceitful above all things, and incurable—who can know it?” (Jer.17:9). From the carnal heart, comes selfish, self-serving tainted, carnal love, not the love of Christ/Messiah. Teach me daily; convict me daily, that I will put all flesh to death, so it will no longer interfere with full dependence on You/surrender to You.
When I “Abide in You, You abide in me” (John 15:4), and I can “walk by the Ruach,” (Gal.5:16), and actualize that position of oneness,just as Father and Son – “that that they all may be one. Just as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You, so also may they be one in Us . . . . that they may be one just as We are one— I in them and You in Me—that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me and loved them as You loved Me” (John 17:21-23). I want to share that state of “oneness” also, with my fellow believers. I crave this supernatural way of life to become a natural lifestyle for me all the time, daily, ongoing, for “If we live by the Ruach, let us also walk by the Ruach” (Gal.5:25).
Let me seek the things of Your Kingdom, more and more, not of this decrepit society. The things of Your Kingdom are supernatural. Bring me higher and closer, and take me deeper – into that supernatural realm. In Jesus/Yeshua’s Name, I pray. Amen.
