“For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power” (Colossians 2:9-10).
“Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness” Psalm 9
Today is Palm Sunday, the day that Jesus was honored with palm branches being laid before him as he rode into the city, and we are just one week away from Easter. It humbles me to reflect on the sacrifice that Jesus made for us at Calvary for our salvation. The world tries in every way that it can to keep the saints of God distracted. If I allow the world to convince me that joy in the Holy Ghost isn’t for me, today, I may not pray until I have the joy of the Lord, which is my strength.
If you’re sitting in his presence, today, and worshiping God, then he’ll meet you. God is truly more than enough to supply every need that we could ever have. Since God is all of these things: why do we fret when we feel pressure from the world? I must stay in prayer and encourage myself in the Lord, even when it seems that I walk alone.
If I’m not convinced that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him, I might not bother to seek him. I know, beyond a doubt, that loving God with all of my heart, soul, mind, and strength, will cause me to triumph with confidence.
When I ask God for his will and question it; he teaches me to have faith. I used to worry until the Lord spoke to me through his word, “My grace is sufficient for thee,” and because he overcame the world, the enemy couldn’t destroy me.
“My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me”(2 Corinthians 12:9).
He told me to trust in him to bring a peace that passes all understanding, and now, the peace has arrived in my life, in the midst of the storm. There’s no question that if we choose to stand, we will be victorious.
It’s the same peace that I want the world to be confounded by when they see me. I may not have all of the answers, or know how the Lord will bring it all to pass, but I know that he’s faithful to deliver his promises. We serve a mighty God, and when people see me, I want them to see Jesus. God spoke the worlds into existence, and even when people rejected him, he still stood on his word because he loves us. There’s no fear when we trust him; there’s no compromise if we walk with him. Compromise yields great pressure; standing on the truth of God’s word will help you endure it to the end.
Nothing is too hard for God. How many times do we actually meditate on that truth? Our society has a tendency to forget the Lord and what he can do for his people if we’ll only trust him to bring it to pass. If nothing’s too hard for God to do, then why do we have such a hard time receiving the promise for ourselves? He knows every thing and he is sovereign. He meets all of our needs. He knows my uprising and my down sitting. He knows the very hairs of my head and still he is mindful of all his creation. He created the universe and he filled it with his glory, and still, he lives in me. His splendor outshines anything that man could ever put together.
“Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people. The Lord God, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him” (Isaiah 56:7-8).
