Covered in the mud of difficulty and pain, your faith already so battered by the raging storm, you feel as though you been tossed about in the waves and now what? It is too hard to believe or hope again. Lift up your head Child of God for life is coming down that old dusty road. Your promise is coming! Hope is coming! Jesus is coming!
Have you noticed that at the point of your greatest miracle is when the devil will come to strike down your faith? Just as Orpha, Ruth’s sister-in-law, took off when she should have stayed. Judas experienced Christ himself and all the awesome miracles, but yet he turned away. The 500 that saw Jesus ascend heard Him say to tarry in Jerusalem, yet only 120 were found in the Upper Room. I say to you, “Hold on, for your breakthrough is closer than you think!”
The enemy thinks he has a coffin designed to box you in whether it be finances, fear, depression, or even the past, but Jesus is here to confront that coffin.
It may look like the devil took your miracle, shoved it into a coffin and carried it to the graveyard. The pallbearers of doubt, depression, drought, division, and death have been carrying your stuff for too long. I know you have heard that song, “Ain’t No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down”? Well, ain’t no devil in hell gonna hold your miracle, your family, your healing or deliverance anymore.
Jesus stopped a funeral as they were carrying a young man to his final resting place, or so they thought. Jesus told the widow not to weep as He touched that ice cold coffin and broke the power that held that young man down. Death could not hold him! He told them to put that coffin down! His touch broke the icy grip of death!
The Bible never really said what the young man said when Jesus raised him from that coffin, but I like to think he said, “Look what the Lord has done! He healed my body, He touched my mind, He saved me just in time! I am going to praise his Name. Let me out of this coffin and give me my clothes, give me my shoes! Give it all back for I am healed now!”
Tell the devil to put it down and give you back your stuff! He can’t hold it anymore! He can’t hold that husband or wife, he cannot hold that friendship that meant so much, he can’t hold that prodigal child, he can’t hold your healing, he can’t hold your finances, he can’t hold your praise, your shout or your dance!
That thing that once died in you is coming back to life in Jesus mighty name!
