After resurrection Sunday, I really begin to think about just how powerful the day truly is.
I thought about how Jesus died and rose again causing him to have power over both the living and dead.
And because of his sacrifice and his death, anything in me or situations around me that appear “dead” he has the power to resurrect or bring back to life for my good.
This relates to my finances, relationships, gifts, talents, and any other area that Satan tries to destroy.
He ultimately truly has no power, the power has been stripped away. Whatever he kills I have direct access to the person who can resurrect it!
With this realization, however, is also the realization that he calls us “sons and daughters” and therefore has given me the same power to call things to life in my life and also cause things to be put to death.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue;
those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18-21.
Due to this, I realized that there are some circumstances and traits in my life that I have
“resurrected” that I need to put back to “death”.
Low self-esteem, judging myself, my anxiety, are all issues that I allow others to resurrect in me when they make decisions that I find hurtful and cause old wounds to rise again.
The reality is this, I cannot control what others do to me, but I can control how I respond and let what they do become apart of me.
I don’t have all the answers, I don’t even know what’s going to happen in the next few hours.
But what I do know is this, because he died, I can face every moment of my life and control MY outcome.
