Because He lives
I can face tomorrow
I love these lyrics from Because He Lives. Jesus lives and because he defeated death, we can know he is always with us. Because he lives, we can face tomorrow. We can face the problems of life knowing he is with us.
We can also know that his resurrection can empower us as Romans 8 says:
“And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you”.
God can and will empower us to overcome. He will give us life. For some it can mean healing. For some it can mean his grace is sufficient for us as we press on in the face of difficulties such as chronic illness, depression, anxiety, family problems, past abuse, addiction or any other difficulty.
I have experienced his grace sustaining me as I live with chronic health issues. God has helped me to overcome the effects of growing up in a home with an alcoholic father and a mother with mental health issues. God sustains me as I deal with the daily effects of depression due to chronic illness. Because Jesus lives, I can face those things knowing that Jesus is always with me and has all power to help me and in the end of my earthly journey, he has a place waiting for me in heaven.
This week my post will highlight other bloggers who have overcome or are being sustained by God’s grace because Jesus lives.
I love Vickie Winans recording of Because He Lives. I hope it blesses you today as it has me.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
