9 And those who went before and those who followed were shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!" - Mark 11:9-10
On this Easter Sunday, our hearts should cry out "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!” We love a God who truly does save.
This world will bring us tribulations. There will be heartache and trials in this world, there will be days when we want to give up, there will be times when it all feels like it’s just too much too bear.
We live in this world, so the question should not be will we experience trouble. It shouldn’t even be why do we experience trials. The world is broken. When we refer to the world, we’re not talking about the earth or the planet, instead we’re talking about the system of sin and evil that wreaks havoc on our relationships, on our bodies, on this world. And since we don’t have any choice but to live in this broken world, we have to expect that we will experience difficult days.
The question is not whether you are living in the world, but whether you are living in triumph. We are told as believers in Christ, we can take heart. In this world, He has overcome the troubles of the world to bring us peace.
There is trouble, but there is triumph. The pain of Friday is real, but have faith - the joy of Sunday is coming. The sorrow and suffering of Friday scars us, but it does not win because Sunday is coming. The trouble of this world wounds, but it does not win. Choose to live in victory. Choose to live in peace.
Hosanna in highest!! We love a God who saves us from the troubles of the world. We may experience trials here in this world, but we know that He is risen so that we can find true peace. Happy Easter, friends!!
Press on ~ you are loved 💗
