This last month or so Jesus has been leading me on little journeys in the mind and teaching me through them. This day I learn about Easter:
Jesus says, come swim in the sea with me. As we walk into the waves I am confident in Him. “Follow me”, says He, sinking under the surface. Holding my breath, I dive down into the waves. Down farther goes Jesus. By now I need air and must go up not down. “Come”, He calls, “let Me sustain you”. Whoa, this is oxygen we are talking here. Do I trust my Lord and God, or do I see only through the natural worldly logical eyes? Do I trust Jesus with my life or not?
"Jesus, I trust You." I swim down to Him releasing my breath to the sea. No worry, no pain, just trust Him with my life. He takes my hand, “Come and see the plans I have for you.” What can You have for me under the waves, Lord? “Trusting in Me brings many rewards.” Jesus smiles. “Look up.” In obedience I turn on my back and am awestruck by a crystalline light shining in/through the waters pulling, drawing me up. I am surrounded by the light of the precious presence of God. Wonderment. Resurrection. Rebirth. Baptism.
Releasing my all to Jesus, my breath of life I gave to Him, and I am reborn. Total trust I give to Him and I am cleansed in every cell of my body, and every part of soul. Fill me with the wonderment of You, Jesus, being in every part of my life. You are the One and only God Almighty; You gave Your all for me, now I give my life to You. You live Your life in me~ It’s no longer I who live, but You who lives in me.
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice!
Easter. We celebrate Jesus resurrection from the dead, but not only Jesus’ but also our resurrection from death as well! We die to our old sin-nature letting go all that was of evil within, releasing it out of ourselves and rising up to the light of our new godly-nature with Jesus.
At Easter we celebrate our freedom of new life reborn into God gaining our Father’s DNA, able to partake of all the promises of the Word, Jesus.
We now live in joy and peace.
Philippians 4:77 And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Have you been reborn into God’s DNA yet? Easter is the perfect time to make this choice!
