The supernatural is essentially the operation of the Holy Ghost. If a person loves the Lord and believes in Him, miracles, signs and power will freely accompany that person. 


One quality you need however is faith in God and His word.  You also need faith in your own prayer.  Without faith, you cannot operate in the Supernatural and call those things, which be not, as though they be.  

Faith comes before prayers.  Don't start praying if you are still doubting the Word of God about your situation because such prayer will not produce any miracles. Gather the relevant written word of God and meditate and speak them to yourself until they enter your spirit, embrace them and pray, asking God to fulfil His word in your life.

Know for sure that God honours faith and He is ever faithful to perform His word. He says I will watch my word to perform them...Glory to God!


The second requirement is love and an active relationship with the Holy Ghost.  The combination of faith and love working in the life of a person opens the doors to the supernatural.  You can be sure of the presence of the Holy Ghost where ever Christ is glorified.

When you have the presence of the Holy Ghost with you, the supernatural looks easy and miracles become the order of the day.  You will also need to devote yourself to the word of God, and study and meditate on it daily.

In the early church, the Apostles gave themselves to prayer and the ministry of the Word, and the Lord was with them confirming their words.  Whether we like it or not, there is already a great hunger for the prophetic because of the activities of the powers of darkness.  

The ability to bring the Lord Jesus Christ into the scene whenever we pray. The minister, brother or sister should: 

1. Be born again, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.


2. You must be born by the Word – It is the word of God that recreates you to become new in Christ.  This is why Apostle Paul said, “Know you not that you are born by the word”?.  The renewal of your mind is by the Word of God and so if the word of God is not inside of you while you are professing to be born again, you cannot operate in power.


3. Prayer - A man of God is usually a man of prayer because of our desire for His guidance and other needs, we pray to God always. It is by prayer that we communicate our challenges, petition and requests to God.  So, if the Word is inside of you and you are prayerful, you can easily operate in the power of God.


4. Believe in the Miraculous - If you have the word of God in your spirit and pray with faith, the door to the supernatural opens to you.  Jesus Christ is the Word, the Resurrection and life, and the Bread of life. By Him, you have unrestricted access to the supernatural.


You must run away from sin and be a holy vessel unto the Lord.  To operate in power and do the supernatural, holiness is required.  Holiness in your thoughts and conversation. The words that proceed out of your mouth should be few and seasoned with grace.  You simply will have hatred for sin and flee at every appearance of sin.


Beloved, God is available for the humble and faithful brethren.  He even says that before you start praying, He will hear you.  Are you born-again, you have the Spirit of God working in your life.  Believe His word, which is sent to heal, deliver and guide you, speak those words and stand on them, then watch and see His glory.

Consider surrendering yourself to Him completely, so the Holy Spirit in you will be active in every area of your and point out areas that you need to amend to move forward in the spirit. Obey the promptings of the Holy Ghost and your life will soar beyond your imagination.


1. Seek His presence.

The more you stay in His presence, the more of His grace and power that will manifest in your life and ministry. His presence makes the difference! So, it is your duty to study the Word and meditate on it, pray and fast enough, that will make heaven know your name and voice.


You should know the person of the Holy Spirit and do everything to obey Him and let Him lead and direct you. Doing the things that please the Lord is another way to earn the backing of God.  Live a righteous life and avoid anything that grieves the Holy Spirit.


2. Have strong faith

Faith is born from the revelation of the word, from hearing the Word of God.  Faith is born and developed by divine encounters and personal experiences we have on a daily basis. 


3. Walk the faith

The Bible tells us, that “Faith without works is dead” (James 2:20). The power of God is released to help people in diverse conditions receive the touch of God that turns their situation around, so you must learn to speak the word you believe in your heart and stand by it.


4. Pray and fast regularly.

In Matthew 17:14-21, Jesus said unbelief, fasting and prayer were the reasons why the disciples could not deliver the epileptic boy. The disciples couldn’t cure him, but Jesus did. It wasn’t a question of God’s will, but the availability of power on the part of the disciples. The Lord says “this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting” (v. 21). Prayer and fasting help to release God’s faith within us. 


5. Be sensitive to the Spirit

To operate in the supernatural, we must develop a keen sensitivity to the person of the Holy Spirit. God doesn’t work the same way all the time, and we need to hear His direction for each situation.


Jesus spent time praying and fasting always and His ability to hear and see the actions of His heavenly Father came out of the time He spent with Him in prayer and communion.


6. Be motivated by love. 

Love must be the foundation for everything you do. Without it, power can lead to pride and self-inflation. Love is the greatest manifestation of God’s power. It was because of love that Jesus walked in total obedience. It was because of love that the power of sin and Satan were defeated. Love is what motivates our faith. 


Love is what causes us to live in the Spirit. Romans 13:10 KJV “Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law”. Love is the greatest virtue of all. Without faith, you can’t please God. But without love, you don’t know Him at all.


Love is the nature of God in us that makes us extend help and kindness to others.  Without love, prophetic grace will be used for money-making and to help your friends, but with love, the grace you carry is for everybody, whether friends or foes. Love destroys offence, and disunity, love conquers all.


Obstacles to the Supernatural

There are reasons why people do not operate in a supernatural ministry. Some of these are identified below:

1. Fear

Jesus said to His disciples: "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you”- Luke 10:18-19.


2. The desire for the Supernatural

The bible says blessed are those which do hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled - Mathew 5:6. This scripture is true to operating in the supernatural.  You will have to thirst and hunger for it with good intentions.


Thirst and hunger are the oil that fuels the supernatural flow of power, any time that hunger dries up, His presence will also be absent and the miracles will cease.


3. Pride

Pride of achievement is one terrible malaise that troubles ministers with prophetic grace.  The devil would always want to deal subtly with them by making them feel they are the miracle worker themselves, which is a lie.  Only Jesus Christ is. So, all kinds of pride, arrogance, exaggerated self-confidence, and self-indulgence are obstacles to operating in the supernatural. God cannot share His glory with man, and He is not a respecter of persons and so, the Lord must be feared and reverenced all the time. 


4. Lack of Prayer and intercession

There is a saying that without prayer, there is no power; and the more prayer you can say, the more power you will experience. Effective prayer life is an indispensable requirement to operate in the supernatural. Most of the time Jesus will withdraw from the crowd to a solitary place in order to commune with God. That kept Him connected with the Father and the power of God. 


Lukewarm and prayerlessness will spell disaster for any minister that operates in the supernatural.  This is because the enemy does not rest, they constantly monitor their target.


5. Wrong Company

Having the wrong people in your boat or moving with the wrong company of people can only result in frustration and setbacks. This is an issue for both the Minister and the congregation.  Your associations can either promote your vision and grace or limit it.  So many people start well with God and later derail because of wrong people and wrong advice they received.


If you think you can operate in the supernatural as Christ did without sharing His sufferings, you are joking.  Apostle Paul posited it correctly when he said in Phil 3:10 "That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings being made conformable unto his death". If you will operate in this realm, be ready to lose unhelpful friends and companies.  


Finally, don't be deceived, the supernatural will not answer to a baby Christian. You must love the Lord, study and meditate on His word and obey them. The gift of righteousness has been given to you to enable you to walk in holiness and fulfil your destiny. So, grow up, rise above the baby Christian, still drinking milk and complaining.  


Friends, Jesus is coming soon.  It is the loving-kindness of God that He has kept you alive till now.  So, give Him praises and receive His Son, Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life.

Today is the day of salvation, tomorrow may be late!

Say this simple prayer: 

Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus Christ.

I believe Jesus died for my sins and rose again for my justification. I repent of my sins and ask for forgiveness. I ask Jesus to come into my heart and reign as my Lord and Saviour.   


I receive Him by faith and I am born again.
