He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.
You may be experiencing a rough time in your personal or professional life, or both. Breathe, and know that just like yesterday and yesteryear, God will see you through to the next day. Tomorrow won’t be your today because there is always something different that will happen to make this so. Be grateful for the blessing to rise and experience each day brand new.
God knows your present and your future. He’s looking to you to see, listen, discern, and obey. He’s waiting on you to be consistent and disciplined. Not just during good times, when it’s easy, but during the rough times, when out of desperation we do and say stupid things. Our relationship with God should not be a conditional one, but many of us have created exactly that, and He’s waiting on us to fix what we created. Jesus demonstrated how.
How will you demonstrate your commitment today?
What will you say to the enemy every single time it speaks to you, tries to tempt you, and tries to distract you?
What one thing, will you change today to have a stronger relationship with God?
What habit will you focus on changing and replacing?
Our relationship with God is to be active and engaging, not passive and lazy. Every single day we must commit to be a part of this relationship, working to protect and honor it. Every day, He does His part. What about you?
Are you asking for much but giving and doing little?
Does your daily walk prove that you can handle and care for both little and big things, gifts, and responsibilities? If not, then why should God give much to you, when He obviously can’t trust you with little?
We must prove that we can follow through with promises. We must prove that we can be good stewards of the smallest of things, so that progressively, God can bless us with more and bigger.
What will you commit to do today? Prove that you can handle today and then wait for His direction for tomorrow, and the days after.
Father, Your son was tortured and crucified on the cross to demonstrate Your truth— that we are never separate from You in the flesh. To prove to the naysayers that He was not only the wayshower, the Christ, and Your son— but also that through him all people could find peace from and within Your kingdom.
If his healings did not prove Your power, grace, and mercy, then rising from the grave should have. He then resurrected, by Your power, to prove that there is no such thing as death in Your reality— but instead, we move on to another level of existence.
Thank you Father.
You know my needs, You know my fears, and You know the struggles that I’m enduring and still facing. I want to prove my commitment and faithfulness to our relationship. I want to be an active and obedient participant—asking you each day for my directives, following through moment by moment, turning away from distractions, and rebuking the enemies lures.
Help me to lean on You, trust in You, ignore the distractions, and walk only by Your voice. In Your name and Jesus’ name I humbly and faithfully pray. Amen.
