Topic: The same Spirit indwells you.
Main Text: Romans 8:11
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you. (NIV)
If that incomparable great power could raise Christ from the dead and whiles at work, He also made it out with a power packed souvenir (the keys to death and hades. Rev 1:8) then know that it is absolutely impossible for anything you touch to die if you believe in Jesus because this same power has been deposited in you.
That marriage cannot die, that business cannot die, you cannot die of that ailment, no matter how deep you are in debts, know that it is possible to get out.
Your situation can never be greater than what Christ endured on this earth and on the cross to death, but even in death that power was at work behind the scenes, causing a mighty one of a kind comeback to have ever occurred.
That setback you are experiencing lately should tell you something, you are being prepared for a major comeback which will save lives and bring glory to God.
This is not a time to weep and it’s definitely not a time to fold yourself in a box hidden in a dark isolated place.
This is a time to rejoice in your suffering, keep praising God because you know that all things are working for your good in Christ Jesus. Let them persecute you, but keep doing what you do best and keep smiling, your smile will demoralize them. I tell you today, that your victory lies in your praise.
If Jesus had focused on the pain He was going through, we will all not be saved and would be wallowing in the bottomless pit sin leads us into, but he pressed on looking at the limitless rewards that fast approached. He fixed His eyes on the victorious crown and His love for us, and the Strength of His father saw Him through and now we are all enjoying the products of His pain, love and sacrifice, GRACE.
This reminds me of a video that circulated on Facebook with someone posing as Jesus willing to be whipped as in the case of our savior and just the initial stage of receiving some two lashes that guy quit, lol. He did not even get to the point of wearing the crown of thorns but the pain alone from the whipping was enough motivation to quit, after all from his mouth I’m not Jesus, I’m just acting why should I die in an act.
My dear, Jesus went through hell to give us everything we have now and so let’s not waste it, let’s make good use of the available resources open to us to cause a change wherever we are.
Remember that you have an incomparable great power residing in you, the same one that raised Jesus from the dead.
Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for the gift of life and this message I’ve received today. I humbly ask that you will forgive me of my sins as I forgive those who sin against me. Enlighten the eyes of my heart in order that i may know the hope to which you called me, the riches of your glorious inheritance in the saints, and your incomparably great power for us who believe. Help me walk in dominion for that is my place by grace. Thank you Lord for listening in Jesus name amen.
