So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. - Romans 6:11

I don't pause on this truth enough - Christ lives in me. The same power that rose Jesus from the dead, lives inside of me. Let your heart consider that wonder today - by grace, we are the temple of God. We are where He chooses to reside. That’s absolutely amazing when you spend any time thinking on it. By grace, He lives within us to complete the work He has started in us. By grace, He fights on our behalf even when we don't have the sense to do so. By grace, He motivates and convicts us to do what is right. By grace, He reveals the lies that live in our hearts, and He leads us to the truth. 

He hasn't just forgiven us, He has taken up residence in us, and in that, there is real hope. No matter what you face today, everything you need to fight it already lives inside of you. You may think you don’t have the strength to face the trial in front of you, you may fill with anxiety as you fear trials coming in the future, but that’s a lie the enemy would have you believe. You have all the strength living inside of you that you need to face anything life throws at you. 

If that power can raise Jesus from the dead, He can do anything you need Him to do. Stand firm on the Truth that lives inside of you, and face your day with confidence.  


Press on ~ you are loved 💗
