Today I will arise from the dead, that is, jolt myself out of the deadness of being apart from Christ and take the initiative to connect with Christ and receive His vitality to face life’s challenges. What I cannot do myself can be done when Christ gives me His power. But that power cannot be accepted until I admit my powerlessness. One thing more; Christ may require me to “do something”, to take some action as trifling as it may be. “Then He said to the man, Reach out your hand. And the man reached it out and it was restored, as sound as the other one.” Matthew 12:13 Amplified Bible, Standard Edition.
“Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
Today I will go to God’s altar, prepared to act at His command.
