How many times in your life have you felt like you were all alone, empty inside, or that you were facing a problem that no one could comprehend?
You are not the only one. There are countless times in life where we buy into this lie that what we are going through is personal to only us, that no one has ever encountered a problem such as ours; therefore, I can speak to no one about it. This may sound like an aggressive statement, but that is a literal attack from the enemy of your soul to keep you from sharing with others and finding power in confession.
It's a militant tactic that has been going since the beginning of time, to divide and conquer. The accuser is desperately trying to separate you from loved ones, family, and friends that have true support; and most importantly, the very God that knows you by name. There is an enemy that hates you so much that he will lie to you constantly and push you towards people and addictions that want to hold you down rather than lift you up.
Know this, there is no issue in your life that is bigger than the power of Christ Himself. He isn't a fabrication nor concept, He is beyond religion, His knowledge and power are limitless. He demonstrated this over 2000 years ago when He hung on a cross to take a punishment intended for sinners, for law breakers, for me.
He then did what no man has ever done, after 3 days in the grave he returned with the keys to hell and death.
No government, no stone, no demon in hell could hold that Man in His grave. He came out of there in victory. Since then He has ascended back to His rightful throne in heaven, with a promise to return. To take this beyond religion and to application is where the true power comes. Get to a bible believing church this Easter, if you don't have a place to go, join us at the Middle School Gym at 10:00 a.m.
God's will for your life is to know you are never alone, the only thing empty is the grave, and there is no problem bigger than your Savior. God bless and Happy Easter.
