“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” – Matthew 28:18 NKJV
Consider the depth of that statement. From ancient times, God patiently and methodically worked within His own righteous constraints to perfectly cut each and every tooth in the key to fit the lock of sin that bound humanity. Once complete, He yelled, “It is finished!” and the tumblers in the lock began to turn, the chains loosened, captives were set free, and the King of Kings was declared the victor!
Yes, we live in uncertain times, but the times have always been uncertain. Fear can cripple and cheat us from God-given victory in our lives and the lives of others. There is still much debate about work/social activities in our communities and admittedly there is no silver bullet answer. However, one thing I know, the spirit of fear has been used as a weapon and that is not of God:
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” II Timothy 1:7 NKJV
If the God of creation went so far as the cross to secure our deliverance from sin, He is well aware of the daily lives of those He redeemed. Let’s be strong today in the power of His authority and move forward together!
