Friday’s disappointment is Sunday’s empty tomb!
Today, I’m praying that every person that reads this would feel a deep revelation from the Holy Spirit of how loved you are. Just think about this: Jesus died on the cross to redeem you. Even when we rejected Him, He still loved us enough to give His life, as an ultimate sacrifice. That’s pretty profound kind of love.
This week, I was reflecting on how sad I would have been if I was around when Jesus was here in the flesh. How much hope he offered and how incredibly sad I would have been watching Him go thru what He had to endure on this Good Friday. Would I have had enough faith to believe what He had promised? Would I have been able to look past what I was seeing with my natural eyes, the saviour of the world being crucified on the cross, to seeing Him conquering the grave thru eyes of faith?
If I’m being totally honest, I’m not sure if I would have been so optimistic. I would like to say I would, but without being in the situation, it’s hard to know for sure. I know I have big faith and I thank God for that gift He has bestowed on me, but would it had been big enough? Is it big enough now?
I Have been mediating on Hebrews 11:1 this week. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen.”
Faith is a neccecity in life. We use it all the time, whether we realize it or not. Just like we need faith to receive the free gift of salvation that Jesus died to give us, we also need faith to sit in a chair and have the confidence it will catch our behind! When we go thru the storms of life, where we put our faith is so important. We can choose to put our faith in what God says or we can choose to believe the lies the enemy tries to whisper in our minds (the devil is real y’all).
Today, I pray those reading this, would begin to build your faith muscles. That you would begin to exercise your faith daily, in the big things and the small things. That you would trust God’s word over anything else. That you would have revelation that if it doesn’t line up with the word of God, it is not truth. That every promise in the Bible is from God (there are over 7000) for you. That all you have to do to activate these promises is believe and receive by faith.
Lastly, I pray that next time you find yourself going through a tough time, while you’re waiting for the storm to pass or for your Sunday to arrive, that you will not let what you see, cause you to forget what God says. We have to remember, there will always be two reports; one affirming natural circumstances and one affirming the promise and power of God. Which report will you believe? As for me, I will believe the report of the Lord. Remember, it’s Friday, but Sunday is coming! Can I get an amen!?
Happy Good Friday. Xx
