The God of Resurrection

62 The next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate 63 and said, “Sir, we remember how that impostor said, while He was still alive, ‘After three days I will rise.’ 64 Therefore order the tomb to be made secure until the third day, lest His disciples go and steal Him away and tell the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last fraud will be worse than the first.” 65 Pilate said to them, “You have a guard of soldiers. Go, make it as secure as you can.” 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone and setting a guard. ~ Matthew 27:62-66

Jesus was dead in the tomb; it looked like it was over. But if you notice, those who had Jesus crucified believed His words yet refused to submit. Instead, they tried to stop any possibility of Jesus’ resurrection from taking place. There are people like this today. They’ll fight to kill your promises, your dreams, and your hope. They’ll even try to bury them and seal the tomb, but that doesn’t mean it’s over.

Even though the Pharisees were able to get Pilate to place guards outside the tomb of Jesus, two angels were sent to roll away the stone and let Him out. Those trying to stop your call sometimes have more faith in you than you do. If they didn’t believe you could do it, they wouldn’t stop you. Therefore, if they have faith in your promise, why don’t you have faith in your promise?

When you have faith in God, and you put that faith into action, nothing can stop your call. People can fire you, they can drop you as friends or clients, or they can try to blacklist you or drag your name through the mud, but if you have God on your side, your dream will not stay dead. He is a God of resurrection and life. So be encouraged today, have hope. There is nothing impossible for God. If He could raise Jesus from the dead, then He can raise your dreams from the dead as well.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Have Faith In The God of Resurrection.
