On Sunday I woke up with such gratefulness in my heart and a sweet worship in my soul. As I continued through the morning I just could not shake the Spirit of God that was trying to usher me into a dimension of praise. I went on to call my Mordecai (Sis Barbara) to do my morning check-ins. As we spoke the sound that was in my soul involuntarily came babbling out of my mouth.
I put the phone on speaker and let the Holy Spirit have his way. I began to sing out loud every song that was placed on my heart. Thank God Sis Barbara is used to my random outburst of prayer or worship in the middle of our talks...LOL. Usually, when that happens, I know God wants to show me something at that very moment.
What started off as just a song of praise turned into a posture of surrender, humility and gratefulness.
As a pressed in, I had an open vision. I could see the nail-pierced hand of Jesus. For a minute I contemplated what I was seeing but then I was reminded of God's love for us. He loved us so much that He sent His son Jesus to die on the cross for us. I wept uncontrollably at the thought of what was done on our behalf over 2000 years ago. I just kept on thanking Jesus and crying as I looked at His hands.
The nail-pierced hands were a reminder to me that no matter what I'm going through right now, that victory was already won on the cross.
Jesus carried the cross to Golgotha, Jerusalem for you and me. Theologians believe the cross weighed anywhere from 165-220 pounds. He carried the weight of the world so we won't have to.
Today I've come to remind you: Your healing
Your well being
Your salvation........... were all made manifest at the cross.
My cry was one of gratefulness, not of condemnation or defeat.
My cry was one of humility because Jesus thought about me.
Jesus came to relinquish us from the snares of the enemy. No longer should we operate as believers without hope. Jesus already took into consideration our needs and desires that's why He never forfeited the assignment. He endured the piercing, He drank vinegar, He wore a crown of thorns, He was beaten terribly, He tolerated the betrayal.......HE SAID NEVERTHELESS FOR YOU AND ME.
Will you remember His nail-pierced hands today?
He was bruised and chastised for you!
Have a great week. I'm praying for you.
