Week of August 9: He's Alive
"And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.” Revelation 1:17-18, NIV.
Nothing is new under the sun. I know you heard this saying, what does it mean?
There is nothing in this world that has not already happened, been seen, or been created; things exist now as they always have and will be. I recently taught on the important of "Going with the flow." My audience seemed perplexed initially until I expounded on the Word of GOD!
Here Jesus tells us to not be afraid; He is the First and the Last. How He once lived, died and now lives forevermore!
You and I have a lot to be thankful for as we live this life in Christ! He still lives today! We can still call upon Him. We can rest assured He sees the depths of our hearts, the uncertainty and the fears! We can flow in any situation holding on to the truth; our Savior Jesus Christ is Alive!
Let Us Pray:
O Mighty and Holy One, you do all things well. Nothing happens by accident. Your plans are intentional. We thank you that Jesus Christ still lives today. We can believe in Him to answer the call. We thank you for Him that sees the depths of our heart and gets right in the midst of it to resolve ever issue in Jesus name Amen!
