TOPIC – In Christ: You Are Entitled To The Miraculous (TREM Devotional 13 June 2021)
“And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name they shall cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” – Mark 16:17-18 KJV
As a new creation, things do not have to occur in your life the same way they happen to others. The new creation is entitled to favour. You are entitled to have heaven fight on your behalf and to create new things for you. When God says He will do a new thing, it cannot be like ordinary things. If need be, He will uproot all the past issues and establish His Kingdom in your life.
Everything about Jesus Christ is supernatural and the same should apply to us who are yoked with Him. His birth and His life on earth was supernatural! He never preached like any of the religious rulers. He will tell you: “They have said but I say….” Whatever Jesus says is what counts. When He came to the tomb of Lazarus, He was simply saying: “Death has said you are not going to come out, but I say Lazarus arise.” When He was to feed the multitudes, people had said that it was a desert and there was no food, but Jesus said, “give them to eat.” Where? In a desert!
It has to be different. If it is the same normal thing, then what makes us new creation? During His earthly ministry, Jesus looked at the storm and said: “Peace be still.” The demoniac, whom everyone was running from, ran to Jesus and bowed to Him, because at the name of Jesus, every knee must bow. So, whatever is not of God in your life is terminated.
In Christ, you have a good and a colourful heritage and entitled to the good things of life. He came that you might have life and have it more abundantly. Don’t settle for anything less.
