The Triumph of Resurrection
You are no stranger to Me, dear 1. Prior to I formed you in the womb I knew you. My understanding of you has continued with no interruption: via your entrance into this globe and onward all through your life. I delight in transforming you a lot more and a lot more into the 1 I developed you to be, a lot as a skilled potter delights in the function he is generating.
1 implication of My uninterrupted Presence with you is that you are under no circumstances alone. I am instruction you to be increasingly conscious of Me, but I realize that you are human and your interest span is restricted. In some cases when you are suffering, you could really feel as if you are alone or abandoned. Nevertheless, I suffered alone on the Cross so that you would under no circumstances have to be alone in your struggles. You are usually with Me I hold you by your appropriate hand.
The final enemy you will face is death, but My crucifixion and resurrection have decimated that foe!
So trust Me to guide you via your life, and afterward take you into Glory.
Jeremiah 1:five Psalm 139:16 Psalm 73:23-24
I am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believes in Me will reside, even even though he dies. I spoke this truth to Martha when her brother Lazarus had died, and she believed Me. Shortly thereafter, I commanded Lazarus to come out of his tomb, and he did. Even even though he at some point died once more — as all persons do — he knew he would rise once more to Life, as all believers will.
Shortly just before My crucifixion, I taught My disciples:
I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
I am every little thing you could possibly want — for this life and the subsequent. I am the Treasure that encompasses all treasures. This truth can simplify your life immensely! I am the answer to all your struggles, the Joy that pervades all time and situations. I can make challenging instances bearable and very good instances utterly delightful. So come to Me just as you are, beloved share a lot more and a lot more of your life with Me. Rejoice as you journey with Me — the Way who guides you usually and the Resurrection who provides you eternal Life.
John 11:25, John 11:43-44 John 14:six NKJV Colossians two:two-three Matthew 11:28
If I am for you, who can be against you? Beloved, I most assuredly am for you considering the fact that you are My follower. Of course, this does not imply that no 1 will ever oppose you. It indicates that getting Me on your side is the most essential truth of your existence. Regardless of what occurs in your life, you are on the winning side! I currently won the victory via My death and resurrection. I am the eternal Victor, and you share in My triumph — no matter how a lot adversity you encounter on your journey to heaven. Eventually, absolutely nothing and no 1 can prevail against you for the reason that you belong to Me forever.
Figuring out that your future is utterly safe can modify your viewpoint considerably. As an alternative of living in defensive mode — attempting desperately to guard your self from suffering — you find out to adhere to Me boldly, wherever I lead. I am instruction you not only to seek My Face and adhere to My lead but to get pleasure from this adventure of abandoning your self to Me. Don’t forget: I am your ever-present Support in difficulty.
Romans eight:31 Psalm 27:eight NKJV Psalm 46:1
