Andrew Toogood speaking. As we learn to live in the fullness of God, remember that it doesn't mean you're going to see flash-bam miracles going on around you all the time. Living a supernatural life means living in the blessing that God has promised in His word. Seeing that happen hangs on a very important point : living in the new covenant God made with us through Christ, not a new version of the old covenant where it was all about God rewarding or punishing us for things we did. Everything that God requires has already been done! So be encouraged, cease striving, rest in His presence, know that in your personal weakness He gets His chance to really shine, and let your life be an encounter with God through His new covenant.
