The Same Jesus
The same Jesus who called Lazarus back from the grave is calling you to abundant life. You may be lonely; He is with you always. You may be anxious; He cares for you. You may be tired; He is rest. You may be lost; He is the way. You may be angry; He is love. You may be broken; He was wounded to heal you. You may be addicted; He is freedom. You may be in darkness; He is a great light. You may be dying; He is the resurrection and the life.
When God seems inattentive, uncooperative, and late, these are the moments when we get to decide what we really believe about Him. Do we believe the Bible stories we read? Even when we decide to believe the Bible is true, we may still sometimes feel like God doesn’t make sense. Yet, we can be sure the same Jesus still hears our cries, shares our pain, and saves our lives. He is our “together-strengh.”
Pray: Jesus, thank You for calling me out of the grave. I choose to trust You to care deeply about what I’m facing, and I want You to face it with me. Thank You for taking on my shortcomings and my pain when You experienced brutal death and separation from God on the cross. Let’s do this!
The people who walk in darkness will see a great light.For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine. You will enlarge the nation of Israel,and its people will rejoice.They will rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest and like warriors dividing the plunder. For you will break the yoke of their slavery and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders.You will break the oppressor’s rod,just as you did when you destroyed the army of Midian. The boots of the warrior and the uniforms bloodstained by war will all be burned.They will be fuel for the fire. For a child is born to us,a son is given to us.The government will rest on his shoulders.And he will be called:Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end.He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity.The passionate commitment of the lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen! – Isaiah 9:2-7 NLT

Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.” – John 11:25 NLT
But he was pierced for our rebellion,crushed for our sins.He was beaten so we could be whole.He was whipped so we could be healed. – Isaiah 53:5 NLT
