Yes, we may struggle in the daily battles of life, but the beautiful truth is that Jesus has already defeated even death. He has made a way and we go from glory to glory.
Song and dance always puts us in a better mood. But when we praise the Lord, it’s more than just song and dance. As we glorify His name, we are taking our eyes off ourselves and circumstances, and beholding God in all His beauty, magnificence and power! It acts as an act of surrender where we look to God instead of man and our current situations.
We often say “in Jesus’ name” at the end of our prayers, or see other believers and leaders say it, but have you ever stopped to wonder what it really means to say “in Jesus’ name”?
How do you know Jesus is alive? Because he got up from the grave and lives in you - there is resurrection power in you! The tomb wasn’t empty when Jesus got up. Jesus just wasn’t there, but all your fear, shame, sin and death is all left behind in that tomb.
“How do I walk in my gift?” First, you’ve got to identify it. Ask yourself questions like what you like to do - often our gifts are hidden in out passions. What would you do for free if nobody paid you, because a career is what you’re paid to do but a calling is what you’re made to do. What do others see in you, because often others see what we don’t see in ourselves! When we find our gift, bring it to God and He’ll show you how to use your gift. Don’t let the enemy rob you of your gift or make you use your gift just for yourself, because God has so much bigger plans than that!
Everything that you imagine, god has put it there in your imagination. God puts real life into your imagination. The things that you’ve been imagining isn’t hokus pokus, but it’s a preview of what’s to come in your life. The problem is that we tell our imagination to the wrong people.
