Topic: Curiosity Killed the Cat (10/10/13)

TITLE: Seek The Supernatural
By Jeff Lockshin


Draw near to GOD, and he will draw near to you. I think the best part of being a Born Again Christian is the close personal fellowship that we are permitted to have with GOD Himself. Think of it. We a seemingly low race of beings living on this sin-loaded planet are free at anytime to call on HIS name. And when we call HE answers. But sadly so many believers ignore the sublime benefits of this supernatural relationship, settling for the mundane. Why? Is it simply lack of curiosity or maybe a fear of things which cannot be judged by the physical senses?
GOD is a spirit, therefore the fellowship we may have with him is totally in the realm of the spirit. Tweak your supernatural awareness. Stir up your desire for the deeper things of the spirit. Itís in there, deep in your soul, perhaps dormant, but ready to be resurrected and come alive. Listen look and feel carefully, amazing things are going on all around you right now. They always have, and always will. Observe with your spiritual senses the over flowing evidence of HIS, I AM here presence, manifested in countless glorious ways. We have all experienced HIS presence to a degree or another. HE often whispers a reminder to your heart to do something important that you likely would have otherwise forgotten. Surely you have known Him as rushing wave of love recognized by your spirit as a sign of HIS overwhelming affection. For us who write, HE is there frequently supplying the right word, phrase or sentence when needed. Unexpected favor, healing, itís all HIM.
Take it to a higher level. GOD appears in dreams and visions, and speaks to us, HIS beloved ones in a soft inward or audible voice. Everytrhing is GODís way of communing with us. Verily the more we are aware of this truth and expect to witness HIS presence within and without, the more and deeper the experience becomes. Is your curiosity peaked concerning going deeper within the supernatural realm of GOD ALMIGHTY? Please do not fear HIS supernatural presence. Your courage will be richly rewarded with a life filled with unspeakable joy, excitement and adventure. Donít let his communication fall on deaf spiritual ears. Draw near to GOD now. Seek the supernatural and you will find it.
Curiosity may have killed the cat, but searching for the supernatural presence of God wonít kill you. To the contrary, you will live like you may have never dreamed possible, while walking in Heavenly places. Like Enoch of Genesis, who was so close to GOD that HE took him up to heaven because he was already there, even while he walked here on Earth.

Your challenge to the reader has me thinking. Thank you for your message.

You make some great points. God is present in so many little things, yet those of us who know him can deeply appreciate those little moments.

Though you do a great job of writing about curiosity, you missed the killing part. The adage suggests that being curious is a bad thing, but you show it as a good thing.

You definitely made me stop and think and that is always a good thing, even if everyone doesn't agree, thinking, praying and exploring Scripture to find what one believes is something good writers can do. Keep writing what God places on your heart.
