Refuse to Live With Your Dead Circumstances

Daily Devotional

St John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

Your dead circumstances do not need to stay dead because Jesus is the resurrection. Whenever he is present, dead things come back to life.

When Jesus showed up in Bethany at the burial place of Lazarus, he told Martha, his sister, that her  brother shall rise again. Martha said in response, “I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” Jesus answered her by saying. “I am the resurrection, and the life.” By declaring himself as the resurrection what Jesus was saying to Martha was, at no point in  time will anything that is dead stay dead in His presence. Therefore Lazarus, her  brother, would not stay dead, because Jesus being the resurrection and life, was present. Whatever your dead situation is, the same message is for you today; nothing dead will stay dead when Jesus is in the building.

You need only to look as far as Jesus’s track record to be reassured that whatever dead thing you are struggling with today, it can come back to life. In Luke 8:54 he raised Jairus’s daughter from the dead, He also interrupted the funeral procession and raised the widow’s dead son in Luke 7:15. Most significantly, Matthew 27:53-54 revealed that after Jesus’s resurrection, resurrected saints were seen walking through Jerusalem as a parting reminder to us all that wherever he shows up dead things would come back to life. Within that context, refuse to accept or live with your dead circumstances any longer when part of the purpose of Jesus coming is to give you and I victory over dead situations.

Your dead situation can live again, stay in His presence and believe in him and watch Him bring it back to life.

Life Application: Put your faith in God and make His presence your permanent dwelling place.

Prayer: Lord, I release all negative and dead situations in my life. In Jesus name, amen.
