Key verse: “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” (Mattw 28:18).
Easter is the time we remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus died and He rose from the dead. He commissioned his disciples to preach the gospel. The same Jesus Christ has all authority in heaven and on the earth. By the name of Jesus Christ, miracles happen today. Various miracles are history-making and earth-shaking events that usually change the whole course of history and the fate of nations. The atmosphere for miracles is a basic necessity of mankind. The fundamental need of the world today is a rebirth of belief in the supernatural power of the Almighty God.
Prayer is the only force that can draw the power of God into one’s life. In the Scripture, merciful Christ did not refuse the plea from anyone but rather healed them all. Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, He healed the leper, raise the dead, and opened the blind. The devil attempted to destroy the people but one word from Christ healed and made good the damage the devil had done to them. Through the miraculous work of Christ, the people amazed at the mighty power of God, which they could not but see in all the miracles Christ wrought. The works of God almighty are amazing especially those that are wrought through the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ; for he is the power of God and his name is wonderful.
God has not changed today. His power as of old is still in operation in the lives of those who believe. He can heal all sicknesses, deliver from oppression and set the captives free. We need to draw His miracles into our life through prayer and faith. And if we have committed any sin, let us repent and turn away from this, for He will surely pardon every confessed iniquity.
Are you sick, weary, depressed, or afflicted? The devil comes not but to steal, kill and destroy. But for this purpose, Jesus Christ was manifested to destroy the works of the devil in your life. There is abundant life in Christ if we can come to Him with unwavering faith.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Faith in Christ secures unflagging victory.
