Expecting the Supernatural

Do we live as Christians as if the supernatural is real? I am not just talking about the issue of spiritual gifts, though they are part of the mix. I am asking, do we live with the idea that we are connected to a supernatural God who does supernatural things? Or do we live life based on our own wisdom and ability? Francis Schaeffer put out the challenge that if God removed from the Bible every reference to the power of the Holy Spirit and the power of prayer, would our lives be any different? Scripture says God is at work in Christians' lives to transform them (2 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 2:10; 2 Peter 1:3). And He is at work through us to accomplish His purposes in the world (2 Corinthians 3:5,6; Colossians 1:28,29; 1 Corinthians 3:6,7). But do we live that way?
