See, I Have Told You…

I love to read the bible in two ways: first is exposition and the other is application. By exposition, I mean to understand the context in which the scripture was written. By application, I’m looking for ways God is speaking to me and ministering to my situation. I just experienced an application moment a few minutes ago and it’s awesome when God meets you in His word. Sometimes, it doesn’t take hours to see God in the Bible (sometimes we do need to take hours to be honest). But tonight was awesome as I read Matthew 28.
I got to verse 7 and stopped:

“Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.”
(Matthew 28:7 ESV)

So what did I see here? Journey with me a little: the two Marys had gone to the tomb where Jesus was buried, an earthquake had shaken the tomb, the guards meant to secure the tomb were blown away by what they had just experienced and the angel said to the women “…See, I have told you”

Ah, that’s it! What has God told you? What is written concerning you? Today, we don’t need an angel nor earthquake; all we will ever need is already written. Having read this verse, I found myself almost screaming for joy:
“Lord, I believe all you have said concerning me. I believe Jesus is risen. I believe in the power of the Holy Ghost. I believe you are a Holy God. I believe in your grace over my life. I believe I can do nothing without You. I believe it is well with me. I believe my sins are forgiven. I believe I am free from every oppression, depression and suppression. I believe in the power of prayer. I believe You, O God! Yes, you have said it and I believe it!!!”

If God has said it, I believe it and that settles it. Do you believe?

Happy Easter celebration everyone.

  • Enoba

    Believing in him for me also implies fearing him which the bible describes as the beginning of wisdom, he has said it and dats all dat should matter to us, we need to come to a point where a song writer says he is foolish for Jesus, take it as he has said it , believe it and leave by cos he for me is all knowing and Wat blows me away is dat he already knows my tommorow and has planned it to,be good with an expected end, so wh do I need to question or doubt him.
