Daily Read – Jeremiah 6:16-8:7; Colossians 2:8-23; Psalm 78:1-31; Proverbs 24:26
And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
When you receive the blood sacrifice of My Son, you are completely forgiven and washed clean. Every sin you have committed is gone forever. You were dead and now you live together with Him. Every action, deed, and word birthed from sin is nailed to the cross and covered in the precious redeeming blood of Christ. An eternal exchange takes place.
Jesus went to hell and stripped Satan of all power and authority. He literally disrobed him making a show of him openly. He exposed him for who he truly was and triumphantly displayed this before all creation. Jesus took the keys to death, hell, and the grave. My glory shot through hell and blew it apart as resurrection life infused My Son triumphing over every work of the evil one. Satan's domain crumbled never to recover.
The same power I used to raise Christ from the dead dwells in you. Satan knows this power resides in you and it terrifies him to see you walk in and release this power. He tries holding you captive to sin that has already been nailed to the cross. Jesus has taken it out of the way.
You have the power to resurrect gifts and callings that have lain dormant inside of you or you have the power to resurrect past failures and sins that are nailed to the cross.
Which do you want to see live again?
Father, I refuse to allow the past to rise from the dead. It is nailed to the cross and no longer obstructs my destiny. I refuse to allow anything to hinder what You have called me to accomplish in the Kingdom. I release the resurrection life that I possess and call forth my gifts, talents, callings, and destiny. Today, I come out of hiding knowing Jesus stripped Satan of all power and authority. I release the dunamus, miracle working, and resurrecting power of Christ into my day. As I continue to do this, Satan's domain continues to crumble and suffer extraordinary damage....
....And that makes my day :)
