Don't you love it when you see something or hear something and it reminds you of a truth or something you forgot, and it rejuvenates you?
A friend of mine recently introduced me to the song "He's Alive", by Laura Hacket and Cory Asbury.
Listen to it here
What I like about it is that even though it is simple, not too many lyrics, they are full of powerful truths.
There is no power in heaven or hell
that could keep me from the love of the Father on His throne
Chains of sin can't hold me down
Even death itself can't keep me in the ground
Death where is your sting?
Grave where is your victory?
I love the picture painted by the words "chains of sin can't hold me down" I can just see chains being busted off me, like Samson breaking the chains. Or these "even death itself can't keep me in the ground", death, the one thing we all have to face, the greatest fear for most people is exposed for what it is now, a sheep in wolves clothing.
Satan wants us to think that sin and death are still in control. That we are subject to them. But we have overcome, by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.
He's alive now I'm alive. He's alive now I'm alive.
Because the power of death is broken, we can now walk out in the power of God like we were meant to.
So much happened when Jesus died and rose again. We are all like sleeping giants, capable of so much, through the power of God now available to us. We just have to be awakened to it!
