“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
Do you ever feel powerless? As though your being tossed about in the waves of life and just when your head comes up above the waves something from the deep pulls you right back down. It’s that constant current of your past that rises and sucks you under. Allow this scripture to be a life preserver of truth for you today! You are not powerless!
As a born again, blood bought believer in Jesus Christ you have been given a gift from your Heavenly Father—His spirit within you! The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in you! His spirit brings new life to your mortal body! You are not powerless, quite the contrary. You are powerful. As we discussed yesterday, you are no victim—you are a victor in Christ Jesus who overcame the world!
The devil doesn’t want you to realize the power you have inside you. And I can understand why, Jesus has given you the authority to overcome all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19)!! God instructs us to be bold and courageous! That we need not fear anyone or anything in our path. It’s time for the children of God to rise in boldness. You have been given this divine resource to march forward in your life. Armed with this truth! Full of resurrection life! You are a new creation in Christ Jesus
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” —2 Corinthians 5:17
FRIEND, I understand how easy it is to feel powerless; but allow this truth to set you free today! Jesus places within you a mantle of authority over every wile of the enemy. Grab ahold of this today and give thanks. As you do I believe the Holy Spirit will multiply that which is inside you. I see chains of doubt falling to the wayside. I see people opening their eyes in wonder as you feel the power of Christ within you. The enemy is out to steal, kill and destroy—don’t let Him rob your wonder! Don’t relinquish any God’s power surging through you to a defeated foe. In the words of Hillsong United, “let the devil know—Not Today!”
TODAY: Embrace what God has given you—His Spirit. And allow resurrection life and power within you to refresh and water your soul.
