Hope fills my heart as I think about the empty grave on Easter and the mighty power behind Jesus’ resurrection. Regardless of my situation, I know God is more powerful than anything. Even death could not destroy my Lord. The part I love so much is that He LIVED as he had already conquered death.
John 16:33 KJV
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Jesus said this verse before He was crucified and resurrected. He believed it before it happened.
That is how I want to live my life. I want to be so full of LOVE and FAITH that I radiant it wherever I go. Every day I want to live as if I have already received the blessings of the Lord. I want to praise Him for the prayers He has blessed me to pray in faith, believing wholeheartedly the gift is coming.
I’m so tired of living comfortably in my suffering. I pray small prayers and then doubt my Lord because I worry about them. When I read my Bible and see all the mighty wonders my Lord has done, I feel ashamed of my doubts.
God is ABLE.
So often, I pray small prayers because that is all my mind can understand. But to be awed by God, we must pray for what our hearts desire, even if our minds can’t understand it. Therefore, I want to pray based on who He is, not what I know.
Miracles are real. Prayer and faith can unlock great blessings for us. Occasionally, God gives us a little glimpse of something unexplainable and unimaginable, so we can see He can do it.
God wants to give us good gifts. He wants to bless us. We need to desire blessings, pray for them, and then expect them. He showed me this as a little girl. I desired Him to fix my hands, prayed about it, and expected it to happen. It happened in His time and way, and it blessed me greatly.
Today, God reminds me to stop putting limits on Him and start praying. I’m ready to step beyond my comfortable suffering and into His abundant blessings.
Have a beautiful day!
