Super natural

Re: Verse reading–2 Chronicles 20:1-4, 13-15; Matthew 6:16-18; Acts 13:1-3 (day seven)
“He fasted forty days and forty nights.” (Matthew 4:2)  “It was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God.”  (Luke 6:12)  “And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping.”  (Matthew 26:40)  God is supernatural.  ABOVE nature in power and worth.  Glorious and good and eternal.  The ancients, therefore, understood that at important moments it is beneficial and wise to place His concerns ABOVE normal (and legitimate) human needs. Not standard practice, but acceptable under certain conditions. Needs like eating or sleeping were subordinated.  Prayer ABOVE food and sleep.  The importance of fasting needs to be recovered in our day.  Remember the disciples in the garden?  They wanted to support, but in their immaturity had not yet learned to seek the spiritual ABOVE the physical.  Only Jesus can make us supernatural.  It is still His desire to do so.
