That Same Spirit ~ Encouragement for Today
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:11 (NKJV)
Easter signifies Jesus’s victory over death. Isn’t it reassuring to already know the end of the story??
He lived and died and rose again. We know it. We don’t have to wait and wonder. But, it was only by the power of God that this was able to happen.
And, did you know that that same Spirit that raised Him lives in me and you? It does! He does!
And yet, I find myself too often living a life that feels powerless and cowers to the attack of Satan or gives in to the temptations of the world.
But I have His Spirit living in me. Not just any Spirit, that same Spirit that raised Jesus. You have full access as well.
His Spirit gives us power. With it, we can overcome anything that Satan throws our way. We can face each new day.
That same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you and me. #youarestrong #powerofGod Click To Tweet
That Spirit can help us fight off temptation.
Are you feeling knocked down and beaten up?
Do you feel weak and helpless about a certain area of life?
Are you feeling uncertain and anxious? It’s okay to feel those things, but we don’t have to stay there. He didn’t go through all this for us to live in a state of defeat or to feel powerless.
Oftentimes what we think we need, we already have.
God in us is all that we need to:
- Change a habit
- Make a big decision
- Face a challenge
- Live the life He’s marked out for you
He is real, and He lives…and He can live in you and me if we invite Him to.
Let’s start living the full life that He’s called us to today.
