Day Five: Supernatural faith, hope, and love

Titus 3:4-7 NIVBut when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.

This is the prayer of our hearts as we go through this new series! Lord, fill us with your supernatural faith, hope, and love. Take us on this journey. Move the boundaries and limits of faith, of hope and of love that we have lived with.
In the past we were devastated by wrong things, by sin, by tragedy, and brokenness. We are now to correctly be devasted and become undone as we are filled with God’s supernatural love overwhelming us, remaking us, and redefining us.

Today, let’s pray and respond to this time of ministry we had this past Sunday. May the Lord rekindle the prayers and the commitments we made to the Lord (Click here).

Prayer: Lord, may you devastate the old fears, the old boundaries, the old shame. Lord, place a new boundary line set by your supernatural love. We pray for daily, moment by moment encounters with you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Day Four: Supernatural love that changes the limits

Romans 5:5 NIVAnd hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Another image that we are supposed to be having with this passage is that the Holy Spirit pours his love into our hearts to the point where it moves the limits and boundaries of what we were previously able to do. In our lives, we have what we feel are the maximum and the minimum of what we are able to do as Christians. When we feel good, we are able to love at our maximum, and when we don’t feel as good, we go down to our minimum. The point being that we still live at a set range, with certain boundaries and spectrum of life.
This is what Abraham was doing in his life, that is until God poured his love into Abraham, and moving the boundaries of who Abraham was to be—the father of the faith, who had hope beyond hope.

Today, let’s ask the Lord to stretch our hearts and lives, so that we can love more and do more. Let’s ask the Lord to pour into us his visions and dreams, as you listen and worship to “Pour into me” and “In the last days” from this Sunday’s worship (Click here).

Prayer: Lord Jesus, stretch our hearts today. Move the boundaries of our lives, so we can love more and do more. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Day Three: Supernatural love that overflows

Romans 5:5 NIVAnd hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

The words ‘poured out’ means to fill, to spill over, to give generously and abundantly. For God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit generously, abundantly—to the point of spilling over.

The image that we are to have is like filling the cup of our hearts with the Niagara Falls of God’s love. Where our hearts are filled from the powerful and constant source of God’s love. As it says in Ephesians 3, God’s love is so great that we need his power in order to grasp its immensity.

Today, let’s open our mouths wide like a new hatchling and receive life from God’s supernatural love, as the Lord pours out into our hearts.

As you pray, listen to the song “When I hear the praises start” by Keith Green. As you listen and worship, imagine the Lord raining upon you with blessings that will fill your heart (Click here).

Prayer: Lord, you have poured out your love into our hearts. The love that fills, spills over, and is abundantly given. Lord rain your love and blessing upon us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Day Two: Supernatural hope to believe God’s promises

Romans 4:18-19, 21 NIVAgainst all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead…being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.

Romans 3:4a NIVLet God be true and every man a liar.

This is supernatural hope: To hope in God against all hope. Abraham had before him God’s promise on one hand and the reality of his old age on the other. At that moment Abraham believed God, for God’s promises are the final word and authority.

There are moments in our lives where we are faced with God’s promise on one hand, and also what we see to be the reality of how things are on the other. At that moment, who do we believe? What issues, experiences, circumstances are we going through that in the eyes of the world (in our own eyes) seem final, and yet it goes contrary to God’s promise? In that moment, who do we believe?
May God be true, and everything/everyone else a liar. May we believe God’s word as the final authority.

Prayer: Lord, fill me with your supernatural hope, where I believe in who you are and your promises as the final authority in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Day One: Supernatural faith to become that which we are not

Romans 5:1-2 NIVTherefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.

Encounter with the Holy Spirit fills us with supernatural faith. Whenever we struggle with faith, the Lord faithfully meets us, and that moment of encounter changes everything.

Even Abraham was not the father of the faith until God made him to become it. How many of us are not—in how we think, feel, and approach life what we are called to be? In humility, we are to stop looking within ourselves for that faith. Rather, it is only when the Spirit empowers us that we are given supernatural faith to believe—resulting in us becoming who we are not, to who we are called to become.

This is the promise and faithfulness of God that we see in Abraham, and we will also see in our own lives. Today, what is that impossibility of heart, character, way of being that needs to be transformed in order to become the servant God has called you to be? Today, spend time asking the Lord to fill you with supernatural faith that comes from encountering him.

Prayer: Father, we ask you to fill us with your supernatural faith to believe. May we become who we are not, into who you have called to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
