Today's Gospel Truth ~ "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:31
After experiencing such an invigorating Easter Season, watching Jesus travel through cities blessing people with life changing miracles to being betrayed by one of his own, sentenced to death, took on punishment that did not belong to him, hung on a cross, died, yet on the third day walked out of the grave and away from death. Jesus got up early on that Sunday morning for all of us and HE Is Still Here! It was apparent that Jesus carried a pure, holy, celestial presence after his resurrection thus he became even more powerful in carrying the glory of God after his miraculous breakthrough on that day. After facing suffering, death, hell, and the grave Jesus overcame by walking through every attempt sent against his life to destroy his victory of standing in his ordained position at the right hand of his Father, our Jehovah Adonai.
From time to time after experiencing our own trials some of us tend to wonder, "How can I still be here?" Well to answer that question, you were born with a divine agenda of which you are still living out according to God's will and greater divine plan. It is not so much that we face trials because we all will have them, but it is what we do in the battle that echos throughout eternity. It is the echoing of what we do in life that either attract divine intervention or demonic activity. All around the world on Good Friday lives were laid down to take their final rest without any expectation to rise again in this world. But for the many that are still here we can be reminded that as we continue to face our days we can stand with the certainty that we are here because we all are apart of God's ongoing divine picture. Which when looked at closely we can see God's brilliant, ingenious pen writing on the pages of our lives each and everyday.
So possibly if you are wondering why you're still here know that it is because what you are carrying no one else has. Trials will come and go but no one else can release the unique exquisite grace of strength God has placed in you to be an overcomer and an encouragement for the body of Christ. After the pain, the suffering, the hurt, the disappointment, the discouragements, the depression, the momentary oppression know that you're still here beacuse a far greater purpose is in the working and you are in it. Therefore, when it seems like things are at their worst give your best, while in the stirring of the battle smile at the storm with the assurance that God already took care of the situation and that he had your back before you were allowed to be released from your mother's womb. As You Wait Upon The Lord Stand in Blissful Greatness Because You Are Still Here! **AMEN**
"Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all." Psalms 34:19
