15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

Jesus Rocks! He disarmed all those that held us captive. He went into the enemies camp and took over. Then he mad a public display of them. Like the generals of old that would parade their captives in public humiliation, our King showed the whole world His victory on the cross.

When you picture Jesus, do you see this triumphal King or is your image of Jesus one of an emaciated criminal hanging on a cross? We serve the King of kings and Lord of lords. Jesus has been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Jesus is all powerful!

Close your eyes and picture our triumphant King leading a procession of defeated foes. Can you sense the power and strength of our God? Do you know that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead is alive in you? Can you feel that same power beating in your heart today?

We are called to live our lives with passion and purpose. We are called to go and make disciples of all nations. We are called to stand against the whiles of the devil, to resist him, to overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. It’s not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit says the Lord. That same spirit lives in you and me.

Tap into the spirit that dwells within you today and go change the world for Jesus!

    Amen!
    I am amazed how the deceiver can still penetrate my thoughts. Knowing I am a child of God I sometimes still revert to thinking I have the desires of my old man . That’s when the Lord calms me down when I read his word and hear his whispers of truth into my ears as they Roar into my heart and shake up and destroy any lies or false foundations. I can go boldly anywhere the Lord leads me, I can do anything the Lord asks me to do, I do this because I am In Christ. Help me Lord not to judge myself like the world judges. If I look like I failed in being obedient to your will in the worlds eyes. I can be assured I have victory. Let that sink into my soul Lord. I want to step out, and live weightless. No more baggage!
    Thank you Lord.
