Mark 11:14 (KJV); And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
Our theme scripture teaches us that Jesus ANSWERED the fig tree, presupposing that it must have said something to Him.
The question then to the student of the Spirit is, what did the tree say?
This tree looked upon Jesus and regarded Him as a mere man who is subject to the seasons and times of the earth. In essence, it assured Him that as a mortal man, He had to wait like all other fallen men do for the season when fruit would appear on its branches.
This was an insult to God in the flesh; the incorruptible one who knew no sin and as such was not subject to the laws of the fallen world. In response, He cursed it.
As a new creature in Christ, you have put on Christ and bear His identity in all things. Nothing created has a right to subject you to the laws of fallen men.
By this portion of scripture, God has given you the authority to command provision from things regardless of their earthly seasons. Your testimony is as declared in Job 22:29, “When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, there is lifting up….” When it is an earthly season of lack, you command abundance.

GOLDEN NUGGET: As a new creature, you have put on Christ and bear His identity in all things. Nothing created has a right to subject you to the laws of fallen men.
PRAYER: My Lord, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the power and grace to command abundance. I have the nature of God and live in its consciousness every day. Everything that I turn to sees the God in me and responds to the life of God. Because of this truth, lack and deprivation are far from me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
