Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new – 2 Corinthians 5:17
When you received Christ into your life, you ceased to be ordinary. You became a new creation—a new species of being—born of God into His class of being: “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:12-13). The life in you is supernatural, being the very life of God. The Lord Jesus, in the course of His earthly ministry, demonstrated the supernatural quality of this life and its extraordinary ability to dominate the natural elements and course of nature.
On one occasion, He defied the law of nature and walked on the sea (Matthew 14:25). On another occasion, He was on a journey with His disciples in a boat, but fell asleep. The waves of the sea got so high and turbulent that water began to get into the boat. His disciples, in fright, cried out, “Master, carest thou not that we perish?” (Mark 4:38). The Master simply arose, rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, “Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm” (Mark 4:39). On both instances, Jesus refused to submit to, or be a victim of, the elements.
When He needed to be with His disciples after His resurrection, He didn’t need to go through the doors. He simply appeared in their midst, not as a ghost, but as one with flesh and bones (Luke 24:37-43). Through the Spirit, you have this same supernatural life and ability in you to rise and live above the dictates and vagaries of nature. You’re called to live the transcendent life, which isn’t subject to natural elements or laws. Therefore, don’t accept or submit to sickness, disease, failure and defeat!
Dear Father, thank you for the glorious, victorious and overcoming life you’ve given me. I rejoice to know that I’m more than a conqueror, and live above the natural circumstances of life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
