Do you believe just because you are a Christian and have a need, God will always intervene supernaturally? If so, this is an incorrect assumption. Look at the world around us. Many Christians are in need and go without help every day. There is a line between what you can do on your own and what God can help you with.
After obeying God’s principles and reaching the end of your abilities, God provides supernatural assistance apart from anything you could ever do on your own. Even when we defy God’s Word, He is a loving and graceful God that still intervenes as an act of mercy. We should not expect this, but know that He is always there.
Are you struggling financially? Are you finding it difficult to make ends meet in this troubled economy? Have no fear, rely on God’s strength. His supernatural power can take you places you would never reach on your own.
Supernatural is that which occurs beyond what is natural. This phenomenon is above natural laws and beyond verifiable measures. This occurs once we have maximized natural laws – our abilities. Many Christians pray for financial miracles, but instead should be praying for God to provide opportunities. Miracles are not necessary in order to achieve natural success. This form of success comes when you apply God’s principles to your finances. The supernatural is only necessary when you are limited in your natural abilities. You can do more than you are currently doing. Don’t use God as a crutch, use Him to propel and maximize your strengths and help you overcome your weaknesses.
Remember when Jesus was faced with a dilemma of how to feed five thousand people with five loaves and two fish? God supernaturally multiplies the loaves and the fish so that not only is everyone fed, but food is left over. God intervenes when needed. Is there anything in your financial life where you have done the best you can but your best is not enough and you want God to step in and perform a miracle for you? This is a good time to trust Him for supernatural assistance. How do you tap into God’s supernatural assistance when it comes to your finances?
The keys to tapping into God’s supernatural assistance are:
1. Maximize your natural ability – Do all that you know to do. Seek wise counsel when you get stuck. If you lack knowledge, find someone who has experience and knowledge.

2. Live a life that glorifies God – How can you expect God to supernaturally assist you when your life contradicts His principles?
3. Obey God’s instructions on giving – If you are not tithing and generous with money how do you expect God to show you mercy or bless you?
4. Pray and seek Him always – There are certain walls we hit that cannot be moved without a commitment to prayer and seeking God. Prayer enables you to release everything to God and tap into His power. He is able to help you beyond human comprehension. Seeking Him and communicating with Him is essential.
