Life In Christ is Not the NORM, It's Supernatural!
Apostle Cathryn Ndyabagye
Psalm 25:15 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
How many of you are standing with a net in your feet because you stopped focusing on God and saw things your own way?
It's amazing how Christians live in normal circumstances and
focus on that 'normal' way of living and do not get past the
NORM. We don't see miracles happen around us (with the NORM).

We try to see it in our own way of thinking--thinking we lack or  are not blessed. Well, it's because we are not using our faith to get us where we should go in the Holy Spirit!

We are not in prayer and seeking God's face like we should be. The norm--what we see, and our fleshly ways can hinder our walk with God.
Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Matthew 10:1
[ Jesus Sends Out the Twelve ] He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.
Matthew 28:18
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Luke 10:19
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
Now, this does not mean that we go find snakes to handle, it means that God gives us power and authority over the enemy. 

That nothing is impossible with God. That God will give us the supernatural power from the Holy Spirit.

That we are given authority as believers. So we don't have to be afraid. AMEN

One of my favorite scriptures that hit me so hard when I read it was the one that says  in

Acts 19:2 "He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost."
This is what a Christian needs after they are saved. So God can use that power in him/her.
Studying the Word is fine, for we need to know the word in order for it to come alive in our lives.

If we are not walking in the Holy Spirit and allowing to direct our ways, how can we take the authority we need in God?  Didn't Jesus teach us to take authority, even over death? 
It's amazing how we give into defeat in our 'normal' lives--instead allowing the Spirit of God to bring  SUPERNATURAL in Jesus! 
We need to make some changes so that we can be more sensitive to what God wants us to believe, and allow God to build our faith, and walk in it. What does Jesus say?
John 14:26-27 (Amplified Bible)
 26. But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.27. Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]
Wow, so this means The HOLY SPIRIT teaches us all things! He brings the Word into our minds! 

Even all that Jesus taught us!  That we should be walking in Peace.

Not think like the world thinks. So, that means we should not be living in the 'NORM'. That we are to be strong in the Lord, depending on the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us, allowing the Holy Spirit to act on Jesus behalf--in the SUPERNATURAL!

Are we doing this? Simple faith brings supernatural results AMEN
We allow ourselves to be agitated and disturbed, when it's plain that the Word says to not be that way.

How many times did Jesus say 'Fear Not,' or 'Ye of little faith?' Then it goes on to say not to be fearful, intimidated, cowardly or unsettled.
Oh man, These are strong words!

We all tend to fail in these parts of our lives at times. God can change this routine!

He can brake those chains of repetition of the flesh, to make us strong, so that nothing can sway our faith! AMEN! 

We can walk in the SUPERNATURAL! Undefeated in every area of our lives!
Church, we need to learn what taking authority--wearing our armor all the time, not just when we think about it!  We don't realize that, without the armor that we allow people to defeat us in attitude. Check this out...
Think of this--How many times do we allow people to intimidate us? You know why we allow them to? Because we are not confident enough in ourselves 'in Christ'.

We need a firm foundation!  If we strongly know what we believe in the Word, we will have no need to allow anyone to intimidate us. AMEN.
When you are strong in confidence in God, nothing can separate you from his love. AMEN! We don't have to be unsettled.

For God is not the author of confusion, right? We don't have to be cowardly, because God wants us to be overcomers. Warriors for Christ.
So what do we do? Well, I guess we have to be strong in all we do in the Lord, and not in ourselves. Allow the Holy Spirit to really be in charge of us 24 hours a day!
What does the Bible say?
Joel 3:10
Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
And remember, nobody is better than you in the Lord. We are all ONE in God.

You don't have to allow others to control, intimidate you, put you down, or discourage you.

Keep strong in your faith in God. This way, people will not sway you. Only God will lead your life, and you can be solid in Him -- immoveable and unshakeable AMEN
I Corin 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
I was talking to a friend the other day, (a confessed Christian who could not find any direction).

This person allowed fear to grip him, and allow himself to be defeated on every side.

He allowed his own thinking and emotions to rule him. The devil convinced him that he 'can't do it'.

I don't say this to put this man down, I am only sharing to show an example how each one of us can get caught up into negative thinking, doubt and worry.

We don't have to allow our thinking to be so negative in God. For, God does not want doubting Thomas's. AMEN!

Do you realize God gives us  the ability to be what we want to be in Him? He knows the desires of our hearts. We don't need to listen to the devils defeat or lies either. 

Remember, the Bible says,  he is a defeated foe, and we have to remember he is only as big as we allow him to be. AMEN
God always points to the cross and to solid answers!  He wants us to be the best 'US' we can be in Jesus! He can open any door!  He will do more than we could ever ask or think! These are promises to us in the Word!
This world has 'no hold', and does not have any say over our life! AMEN  We are in the World but not of the world. AMEN
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
God will bring you answers when people can't. I would rather lean on my God than a human being--when it comes to the heavenly realm. For God always gives you answers in revelation, dreams, vision, and also shows you in your heart about things--daily. You don't need man to teach you this. For the comforter--The Holy Spirit is our teacher AMEN.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Many people stress over: Bills, family problems, jobs, , challenges we face, and normal every day life; it's a piece of cake to Jesus! So why do we fret? He finds it easy to meet our needs.
Can you imagine? He stands and waits as we throw a fit and lose patience. He is waiting to help us and many times we forget to focus on him and get the net entwined around  our feet. But when we focus on Him, Jesus will pluck our feet out of the net and help us to focus on God. AMEN

Life In Christ is Not the NORM, It's Supernatural! PART 2

Apostle Cathryn Ndyabagye

why do you doubt him? Where is the faith?
It's habit... We are able to change our habit and way of thinking, and lean on faith more instead of our own kind of thinking, then we can overcome in our thoughts too...
Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Again I quote this scripture to show you how we can keep from getting our feet caught up in the net of this world or in the flesh.
Psalm 25:15 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
I know, I had to get to a point in my life,  when challenges came my way, I have to look at it, and decide how I will handle it--God's way? or mine? I choose God's way, because I would mess everything up if I did it my way!
 I know, because I have before. And with some of the hard things I have had to face, I know what trusting God means. We suffer when we allow doubt and the flesh to take over. When I gave it to Him and stood confident, he brought me through with miracles--over and over again--SUPERNATURALLY!

Isaiah 55:8
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

Our ways are NORMAL, God's way is SUPERNATURAL... When we finally grab hold of this, and allow the Spirit of God to be real and come alive in our life, turn the TV off more, and allow the HOLY SPIRIT TO EMPOWER OUR LIVES!

Spend time with him, 'pray through' and about everything.

When we fill our mind with worship, not quenching the Spirit, studying God's Word, get direction from the Holy Spirit--in the mind of Christ.

This is when you get real results from Heaven. This will activate your faith! And answers will come. AMEN
When we STOP,  and LOOK at what God wants us to see, and take  time to LISTEN to Him.
STOP! LOOK! AND LISTEN!  Then change will come!
Stop Complaining, fighting and bickering. Be thankful and praise the Lord in all things. AMEN
Philippians 2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
Psalm 46:10A Be still, and know that I am God
When you don't know what God wants. If things are not clear on what He wants for you, waiting on God, is the best thing you can do. Praying and seek His face. He will reveal His will when we spend time with Him in prayer. Rest your mind, rest in Him.
We can crowd God right out of our lives by not stopping, we can get so ahead of God and miss His voice. Take the time to wait on Him.We actually cause our miracles to cease, if we don't take the time to be intimate with Father God!
We don't want to become lukewarm, God hates lukewarm! We need to be ONFIRE! When we listen to God and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to us we can stay onfire for God all the time! AMEN
Isaiah 8:17
And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
Revelation 3:16
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
Hebrews 1:7
And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
Michah 7:7
Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.
Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Isaiah 49:1 Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.
Seeking God's face and hearing His Voice.
Isaiah 55:6
Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
If you start trusting and let God show you supernaturally, you will see your faith move the mountains around you! AMEN! 
God allows us die to self so we can live in Christ. Allowing God to bring each day as 'He wills', trusting Him and walking in the 'newness of life', breaking the old habits of doubt, depend on Him more, and the forget the ways of this world. This will free us, and give us liberty and freedom in Jesus! Experiencing SUPERNATURAL FREEDOM IN THE SPIRIT!




Psalm 119:45
And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Isaiah 61:1
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

God won't fail Us!  So why don't we trust Him and take His authority and make a difference?
Get our minds off of ourselves and think of others more.

Pray for them and help them in many ways, and soon you will be blessed for it's more blessed to give than to receive. AMEN Keep your hands busy for Jesus!
There is one thing that is really required more than most anything and that is LOVE.
Psalm 97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
We can raise the Dead in Jesus! The SUPERNATURAL..
In Joppa, there was a woman, Tabitha--Greek meaning Dorcas, she was a disciple and helped people and gave to the needy. She had gotten sick and died. During this time, the people had cleaned her body to prepare her for burial.

They put her in an upper room.  Peter went with them for he knew in his mind and remembered what Jesus did. He wanted to do the same as Jesus taught him. He followed the people to the upper room.
As we all do--when someone dies, we cry and leave it. How many of us take authority when someone dies, and ask them to rise up? Not many that I know. We get so wrapped up with the NORM that we forget what Jesus taught!  Not Peter! 
Peter had all the people leave the room. He knelt down and prayed. Then, after he prayed he turned to the body and said, "Tabitha, get up!" and she opened her eyes; and when she saw Peter, she raised herself and sat upright.

He took her hand and raised her up.  He presented her to the people, ALIVE! Now this is the authority and SUPERNATURAL that God wants us to have!
God brings this scripture to my remembrance so much, reminding me of my freedom in Jesus and that I don't have to feel bound by anything of this world....
John 15:7 Amplified Bible says,  If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.
Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
2 Thessalonians 3:5
And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
Colossians 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Galations 5:1 says, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."
Notice the word Bondage. What does that mean? 
Merriam Webster says it means:
1: the tenure or service of a villein, serf, or slave  and
2: a state of being bound usually by compulsion
Wow then that means when we depend on our flesh and the ways of the world, as in our thinking, in not believing, we become slave to our thoughts. 
Also compulsively bound means
1 : having power to compel
2 : of, relating to, caused by, or suggestive of psychological
compulsion or obsession
So this means we have the power to compel but how are we compelling?
In our bondage of negative thinking, or in the Word of God and lead by the Holy Spirit?
Another way to look at it is, we become obsessed or compelled to move in our own ways, and self, thus we miss what God wants us to do. So how are we focusing? The NORM or the SUPERNATURAL?

I Corin. 2:5
That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
So now, what will our choices be from this day forward?
To believe, to walk in God's Spirit, in the SUPERNATURAL? Or will we choose to stay in our NORMAL WAYS, to struggle and not get where we need to be?
I choose the SUPERNATURAL!
