Today a wide gap exists between theology (what we read in the Bible) and what so many believers actually experience. For many of us we have allowed our experience to become the standard. For others we are looking for a formula that works and fits our understanding. Many believers are trapped in a “vicious downward spiral.” Every time expectation based on theology is not met, disappointment sets in, and the level of expectation for the unseen decline slowly and undetectably until it reaches a point where most of the real expectation for the supernatural is lost. As a result, it causes a believer to lose faith and live far below the authority and power that God has promised.
Through the years of my ministry and Christian life, I have come to see that most believers are desperate to see God made real to them in their every day life. They want their faith to be more than just some fancy theological word, nice doctrine, or a three-point sermon. They want a Christian life that reflects the Christianity of the bible, a Christianity in which healing, miracles, signs and wonders are regular and normal experiences. Most believers long for deep inside to find a Christianity powerful enough to meet their needs in body, soul, spirit. They want a faith that’s real, that’s exciting that makes unbelievers sit up and take notice.
The Christian life God wants to lead you into will take you into the world of the supernatural, of the power of God. And the faith adventures with God that impacts your world and the world around you.
