Do material laws cease to apply for devotees?

From Visvambhara P

I have a question with regard to something you say in the article “What raises motion to action is motivation: “When we choose to act based on a spiritual motivation, material laws cease to apply”

In PQPA, when Bob Cohen asks Srila Prabhupada, that you (SP) are a pure devotee, so even if you have to drink poison, this will not affect you? Srila Prabhupada replied that as long as we are in the material world, we have to abide by the laws of material nature, as we are affected by them. I’m parapharasing this point.

How do we reconcile these apparently different viewpoints?
