God is the author of all the physical laws and, as such, has control over them. This fact is well-illustrated in the Bible passage below when a government official came to Jesus, begging Him to heal his son saying, “Come, before my child dies.” But, showing His lordship over time and space, Jesus healed the man’s son remotely. As you read about this incident, you will see that the Bible is teaching us that the Lord is supernatural. And, knowing this, you can be confident to pray big prayers to a big God who will meet big needs for you, if you but only trust in Him.
(John 4:46-54) 46 Once more he visited Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine. And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. 47 When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death.
48 “Unless you people see signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.” 49 The royal official said, “Sir, come down before my child dies.” 50 “Go,” Jesus replied, “your son will live.” The man took Jesus at his word and departed. 51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. 52 When he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, “Yesterday, at one in the afternoon, the fever left him.”
53 Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” So, he and his whole household believed. 54 This was the second sign Jesus performed after coming from Judea to Galilee.
