I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe Him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 1:19-20 NLT).
I want to talk about the incredible greatness of God’s power. This is the same unfailing and amazing power that raised Christ from the dead, it lives in us because we are in Christ and He’s in us. So, why, in our most difficult and trying situations, is it so hard for us to fathom this might power? We are finite human beings, our eyes too often mostly focus on circumstances or problems, with only a passing thought that maybe God will help us.
Papa knew we would need reminders and so throughout Scripture, He gave them to us. There is no instance in the Bible where He did not show up and show off, where He did not demonstrate His power or faithfulness, especially towards His children. The most wonderful part is that no matter how large or devastating things get for us, Papa is greater, and He makes everything work out according to His plan (Ephesians 1:11).
It does not matter what today brings or what happens, Papa holds today in His hand. He’s got you, He’s got your problem, circumstance or situation already figured out and taken care of. Rest in the assurance that His mighty power is at work.
I love ya, have a great day! 🥰
Our church is hosting a healing prayer service on Good Friday. I love these particular services, not only because I get to minister but because of the testimonies of God’s faithful, miracle working, and wondrous power we hear from those who attend.
As I’ve been praying this week I have distinctly heard Papa speak about two things.
1.) Resurrection. “And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many” (Matthew 27:50-53 NKJV). When Jesus died, the dead were raised. As we reflect on what Jesus’ death on the cross bought for us, and pray for those who need healing, Papa is going to resurrect that which people thought were dead. Hopes, dreams, previous prophesies, their spirits, relationships, etc., are going to be resurrected and made vibrantly alive. We will not only hear testimonies of physical healing, but also of spiritual healing. I’m so excited about this!
2.) Revival. “Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you” (Hosea 10:12 NKJV). We are in for an amazing resurrection weekend. We are on the cusp of something and Papa is continuously speaking. He doesn’t want any more spectators who just “do” church, He is looking for kingdom advancement “as” church. Spring is here in the natural, its fight with winter to relinquish its hold can often be nasty. Yet, spring always wins. New growth, new life and overall newness is a testament to what Papa is doing in the spirit. There is revival coming, it will start individually and like the ripple on the water, it will spread.
People will not only have that which they thought was dead resurrected, but they will be revived in spirit and ready to march under the banner of Christ!

Your children and your crops will be blessed. The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed (Deuteronomy 28:4 NLT).
As we talked about briefly yesterday, obedience brings blessing no matter where we are. Today, we see that being obedient to God blesses not only our children, but our possessions as well. Obedience leads to prosperity; while prosperity is not always monetary, it is often most associated with money. When we are obedient to God, He multiplies what we have. This enables us to share, give and spread out, thus advancing His kingdom. The more we give, the more we receive, enabling us to give more.
God doesn’t always multiply horizontally, He often does it vertically. For instance, Abraham and Sarah had one child, but many servants and livestock. Abraham was considered prosperous. Isaac had two sons, Jacob and Esau. Jacob and Esau each had many children as well as servants and livestock. The generations kept multiplying. The offspring are blessed.
When we remain obedient, we leave a legacy for our children, our children’s children and beyond. Listen to what God says, obey and watch how He multiplies and blesses!
I love ya!
