“Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.” -Luke 17:20-21
I want you to know the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead is in you. For some of you, it’s just a little pilot light; for others, it’s a big fire. I want to encourage you to stir that gift up and allow the heavens to begin to swirl around in your body because, within you, lies the same spirit that raised Christ from the dead. You trust in Jesus; your home is heaven. Eternity and all the power of the universe is dwelling in your body. You have faith. If you had a faith the size of a mustard seed you can move a mountain and it’s true. Believe, have faith, and trust that heaven is breaking in and it’s breaking in through you. Every day, heaven gets a little closer. Every day, Jesus is a little closer to this world. We even say, “now come Lord Jesus.” We can’t wait to stand before the throne of a risen Lord in which heaven and earth become one again.
PRAYER: Dear God, thank you for the power you have. Thank you for the same love that raised Jesus from the dead lies within us, today.
REFLECTION: Can you believe that God’s power lies within you? It does!
