|Memorise: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation:but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (Jn 16:33)Read: Revelation 1:17-18|
|As some women came towards the tomb of Jesus in Matthew 28:1-7, they were worrying. They were bothered about who would roll away the stone so that they could anoint His body with the special spices they had prepared.
But when they got there, they discovered that the stone had been rolled away. The stone was not rolled back for Jesus but for the women – to eradicate the source of their worries. The angel also rolled the stone so that the strong desires and aspirations of the women would not be hindered. This gives us assurance that if He could roll away the stone for the women, He can uproot the mountains in your life.
If God could bring Jesus back from the dead, healing your sick body would be a piece of cake. Another thing you would notice in the passage is that after the angel rolled away the stone, he sat on it. It appeared he was challenging the soldiers.
According to Revelation 3:7-8, when God opens the door to you, nobody can shut it. This means once God takes away an obstacle from your path, it is completely gone. Every problem the Lord has taken from your life shall never return in Jesus’ Name.
“And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye; for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified” (Matt 28:5). The women saw the angel and they were terrified. But he said, ‘Fear not, He has risen’. Those who seek God have nothing to fear. As long as you seek the King of kings, you have nothing to fear.
Why? What you should fear would fear you. Even the spirit of fear itself will be afraid of you. In John 16:33, Jesus says you should not fear because He has overcome the world. Whatever tribulation or hardship that may come your way has lost its power to harm or defeat you. In Revelation 1:17-18, Jesus says because He has risen and has recovered the keys of death and life, you should not fear.
You cannot die without His knowledge or permission. You cannot die before your time because He has set a date for that event, and He can extend it if He likes. No accidental death can take you off just like that. Jesus has the keys. No death or life except He opens the door. Don’t fear death. You will not die prematurely. You shall fulfil God’s plan for your life.
|Rebuke the spirit of fear working in any area of your life, frustrate its plans and confess ‘Fear Not’ scriptures.
