Revelation 5:5 (AMP) Then one of the [twenty-four] elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look closely, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome and conquered! He can open the scroll and [break] its seven seals.”
In the midst of chaos, we can easily lose focus of the big picture. I love the instruction above, stop weeping and look closely! It’s a reminder to us that when we are struggling in an area or are terribly upset over a situation, we just need to refocus and look closely to Jesus, the Lion of the tribe of Judah. He is more than the lamb of God, He is the Lion that overcame the grave.
What great news for the children of the Most High God! He is able when we are unable. He is there to fill our shortcomings with His strength and might. Where we are weak, He is strong. Our Redeemer has not left us alone and without support.
Nothing takes Him by surprise - which is why He is our rock! He does not tremble at the lies spoken by our enemy. Keep your focus on Jesus - keep Him at the center - speak life over your family and whatever situation you are facing that seems impossible. Give God the credit for everything because without Him we are nothing. Without Him we are but dust. He created us for a divine purpose and desires to use us and bless us - stay focused, stay focused, stay focused! Do not let anything hold you down - you have to keep on moving! Push through the pains of the circumstances and allow God's peace to overwhelm your spirit. Our God is the Way Maker and He is for us! May we always be champions for Christ and willing vessels for His Kingdom and glory.
Isaiah 43:16 (TLB) I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a path right through the sea.
2 Corinthians 12:9-11 (TLB) Each time he said, “No. But I am with you; that is all you need. My power shows up best in weak people.” Now I am glad to boast about how weak I am; I am glad to be a living demonstration of Christ’s power, instead of showing off my own power and abilities. Since I know it is all for Christ’s good, I am quite happy about “the thorn,” and about insults and hardships, persecutions and difficulties; for when I am weak, then I am strong—the less I have, the more I depend on him.
