The power of resurrection

One of the things that puzzle me next to the complexities of the brain is the working power of God in us.

Now, I have been hearing these words everywhere “HE IS RISEN” I have not uttered them myself, and if I have it must have been a slip of the tongue, thinking out loud or just unmindful chatter. Those words feel too powerful, too sacred and too holy, like I should either say them with power or not say them at all.

These words are falling deeper in my soul, edging deeper and deeper cutting through the dead things in me, going yet deeper to the long lost and dead dreams, and even deeper to the scars of my unbelief, to the places not yet totally His.

“HE IS RISEN”

I feel this  power of resurrection curl strongly in my depths, like it wants to wrap around my core being and bring me even to more life, to more of Christ, to His abundance.

“HE IS RISEN”

And the power at work in me is the same power that raised JESUS from the dead. It’s at work, and it shall work and prevail as Christ and my Father wills.

“HE IS RISEN”

And my prayer is this:

Philippians 3:10 Amplified Bible (AMP) 10

[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection
