The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His reckless love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting?
Our resurrected King
Has rendered you defeated
Have you ever had something weigh your spirit down so much that you felt like you were going to break? Be it, worry, doubt, sorrow, frustration, anger? I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we have all been there. Sometimes certain circumstances are too much for us. We are desperate to find relief but it seems like nothing is good enough. This is a place where Satan wants to keep you, a place of hopelessness. A place where you don’t feel free. A place where you believe the cross has no impact or meaning. This might be a little crazy to say, but have you ever felt like the cross isn’t enough?
If we look honestly at ourselves, we might find that there are times when we believe this to be true… that God is not enough to fix this incredible problem that weighs us so terribly down. It’s times like these that we need to sit down, refocus and look at the real problem. Because believe me, most of the problems we face, though they be external, are actually an internal problem, a heart problem. This is the real issue and has always been the issue.
Where is your heart today? Is it closed to the almighty God? Maybe because you are angry with Him? Or is it so open that you take Him for granted and miss important revelations? What ever condition you are in, it is important for all of us to look at the real weight that was destroyed that day. The real issue that was dealt with when he hung on that cross, the issue of our condemned and broken hearts. This is what God resolved that day. This is one of the greatest works God has done on our behalf. Once we realize this and have Him take hold and fix our hearts, it in turn affects our outlook of our circumstances. You can have freedom and hope in whatever circumstance you are in! He promises this, but only if you let Him.
“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
