“You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations. People I did not know now serve me, foreigners cower before me; as soon as they hear of me, they obey me. They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds. The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior! He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me, who saves me from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from a violent man you rescued me. Therefore I will praise you, LORD, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name. He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing love to his anointed, to David and to his descendants forever.”
The Lord lives!
We can take you to a place in Jerusalem where it is believed that Jesus was buried. We can show you the place where He died. But we cannot take you to a place where His body lies. Why?
Because Jesus rose from the grave and is alive today. This psalm, written hundreds of years before, proclaims what we still proclaim today. The Lord lives!
There is so much about that statement that is victorious and beautiful, but the best part of it is that He is alive to live in us. It tells us in the book of Revelation that He stands at the door and knocks. He waits for our invitation to come into our hearts and lives.
It is as simple as asking. Today’s prayer focus is that simple prayer of invitation for Jesus to come in and change your life.
I know I am a sinner. I ask You to forgive me and come into my life. Thank You for dying on the cross, shedding Your blood to wash away my sins. Help me to live for You. I accept you as my Savior and Lord.
Thank You Jesus,
