As we experience the supernatural as part of our training and everyday life, we become more and more familiar with and responsive to the witness of our spirit to His Spirit. Because we are one with Him as a spirit-being, we grow in confidence in that still small voice. We test what we hear and experience against the nature and character of Christ. We are encouraged by His call to greater dependence on Him, rather than more work, higher standards, greater knowledge in our self. We enter into greater rest and the strength of stillness, even as He works in and through us. More and more He draws our focus toward Himself, with a witness of His Life and Truth bearing fruit in our life. We learn to walk gently with Him on His path, step by step, with growing understanding of His ways, because we have experienced His love for us personally. This is true communion, true fellowship, His Life.
Receiving Supernatural Experiences
Hopefully by now you will be encouraged to ask the Lord to reveal Himself to you through supernatural experiences and will have become comfortable starting to follow the “8 Steps.” Remember that He has a unique relationship with you, so although you can learn from others, He alone knows the path He has laid out for you, and is jealous over His rights and responsibilities toward you. You may indeed have experiences that you’ve never heard of or imagined for yourself. Our goal is that you would have objective ways of evaluating and participating, and if necessary, taking authority within and over whatever the Lord has for you. Remember also that this is only part of God’s overall approach to bringing you into wholeness and dependence on Him, not the only means, and certainly not above questioning.
