The life of a christian shouldn't be a normal life. It's a normal thing to suspend or park a boat until the storm is calm, but Jesus saw it differently when He rebuked the storm. Normally, we should go to the bank or a personal safe to get money when it is required, but Jesus saw it differently when He instructed His disciple to get money from the mouth of a fish. If a tree is yet to bare fruits, you should wait till it does or go to another tree – if you really want to eat the fruit. But Jesus cursed the tree instead; perhaps He believed that the tree was supposed to produce fruits at His appearance.
Right from the days of John the Baptist, Satan put a mental barrier within believers, so that we'd be compelled to live a normal life. Jesus proved to His disciples that it is normal for the storm to arise, but abnormal for believers to run away from the storm. He cursed the fig tree and got money from the mouth of the fish only to prove that a committed believer should have food and money when he needs it. We must come to understand that there are conditions that are normal in this world which are completely abnormal in the kingdom of God.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; LET THE WORD OF GOD DWELL RICHLY IN YOU. THAT'S THE ONLY WAY YOU'D BE ABLE TO DISCERN WHAT IS NORMAL OR ABNORMAL IN THE KINGDOM. Have a most fruitful weekend, In Jesus precious name!
