This past weekend, my family and I enjoyed a beautiful Easter celebration. We Christians celebrate Easter as a remembrance of how Jesus rose from the dead after being brutally crucified two days earlier. I imagine the power involved in that process of bringing Jesus from dead to alive. That power is never-ending!
I’ve read several times in the past few days, a particular Bible verse. As I’ve said numerous times, I know God is speaking to me when I read the same info in various places at various times. The verse comes from Romans 8:11 which in essence says that the same spirit and power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you. Think about that. The same Godly, endless, and invincible power that was used to resurrect Jesus from being dead to universally alive is a part of your very being.
It’s very easy to take this power for granted, to not believe we have it, or to feel like we are unworthy of it. I still fight this battle regularly. However, it is the truth. This power is readily available to us. Let us remember that. Later in Romans 8 it says, If God is for us (which He surely is), who can be against us? (absolutely nobody and nothing!) Not only do you have this power, but nothing can stand against it! And it is ALWAYS with you. Another powerful verse in this same chapter says that nothing can separate us from God’s love. Here’s how Romans 8 ends… “ Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Remember this power today. Know that you can use it to accomplish anything. And you don’t have to sweat the small stuff. Know that you have the power within you to overcome any obstacles, big or small. As you go through your day, remember your power. Be thankful for it, live in it, embrace it. It is yours and no one can ever take it from you. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
