Jesus Arose From the Dead
Sunday past was Resurrection Sunday, a day when Believers worldwide celebrated the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Jesus died but His life was not taken from Him. He willingly laid it down and paid the price to redeem you, me and all mankind. (John 10:17-18)
The vice-like grip of the icy tentacles of death clutched Him, and desperately sought to hold Him…but they could not.
Three days after His agonizing death by crucifixion, Jesus arose from the dead just as He said, victoriously defeating death, hell, and the grave.
His resurrection was the greatest feat in the history of mankind!
What authority! What power!
Christ’s Resurrection Power Lies in You
“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 because of his Spirit who lives in you.”
(Romans 8:11 – NIV)
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.”
(Ephesians 1:18-21 – NIV)
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
(Ephesians 3:20-21 – NIV)
That same mighty, incomprehensible, unfathomable power that raised Christ from the dead is within you and within me.
The exact same power? …Yes, the exact same power, and because that power resides in us, we are power-full.
As Believers in Christ, we are filled with the resurrection power of God. It is within us to help us be and do all that He requires of us and to enable us to live a victorious life while on earth.
God knows this, the enemy knows this, but do you know it?
Do you really know it?
Do you know it as an unshakeable spiritual reality that is an integral part of your life, or do you just know it intellectually, on the level of mental assent?
The Enemy Wants to Hide This Truth
One of the greatest strategies the enemy uses to defeat Believers, especially women, is to try to hide the truth from us that the power of God dwells in us and is available to help us anytime, anywhere in any situation. He instead tries to get us to believe the lie that we are weak, helpless, and powerless victims of our circumstances.
The truth is that we are filled with the resurrection power of God and it enables us to be more than conquerors in every situation for greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world…the work is to believe!
I pray that the Truth of the Word concerning the resurrection power of Christ in you becomes more real to you than ever before and that you purpose to no longer see yourself as power-less, but as power-full.
I pray that you ask God to progressively reveal the truth of His power in you and to teach you how to access it, activate it and manifest it for His honor and glory.
I pray that there’s such a deep, seismic paradigm shift within your spirit concerning the power of God in you that Ephesians 4:13 becomes your declared and manifested confession everyday.
“I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]”
(Ephesians 4:13 – AMP)
You are Power-Full!
Woman of God, you are power-full because the same power that raised Christ from the dead resides in you and is available to you.
From this day forth, believe it, receive it and walk in it!
