I could have let that experience rattle me. But by seeking the wisdom of the Holy Ghost, I found myself full of boldness in a situation where I could have easily been embarrassed and shrunk back. Whatever the Lord tells you to do—whether it’s to pray, or lay hands on people, or cast out demons, or heal the sick—do it without shame or compromise. Naturally Supernatural Jesus said, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover” (Mark 16:17-18). Some Christians have been so “naturalized” that living supernaturally like that is hard to believe. But casting out demons, speaking in tongues, laying hands on the sick—this is all part of the empowered Christian life. We’re Holy Ghost people. It should be nothing for a believer to believe that God could do the miraculous. Why do we so often quench Him? Why do we grieve Him? Why do we resist Him? Why are we ashamed of Him? Why do we duct-tape Him and hide Him in the back room of our lives? Really, it’s just a trick of the devil. If he can’t get us to turn from the Lord, he at least wants to make sure we’re ineffective. He’ll try to convince you that you need to live a nice, quiet Christian life—go to church, drop in your offering, sing a few songs and go home. He’ll tell you that you need to keep from rocking the boat, and to put up with whatever the world throws at you. But that’s not you. You’re a supernatural being! Live What You Believe You’re not a mere man or woman. You are God possessed. You’re the temple of the Holy Ghost. You’re enabled. You’re empowered. You have the gifts of the Spirit. You have the armor of God. Believe it. Every day I tell myself, “Mark Barclay, you’re not carnal. You’re not natural. You don’t use natural weapons anymore. The weapons of your warfare are mighty through God. Go to war on behalf of the Lord Jesus Christ!” Don’t duct-tape the Holy Ghost in the back room of your life. Don’t pray in tongues at home and pretend like you don’t believe when you’re in public. Every moment of your life is infallible proof of His love and work. Now is the time to receive His full power and start walking in all He has for you. Now is the time to live what you believe!
