As He said…

Posted February 24th, 2012 by Leah and filed in Word of Encouragement

REMEMBER THOSE TIMES GROWING UP when your mama’s explanation was, “BECAUSE I SAID SO!” I’m smiling as I visualize my mama frequently saying those words to me, and, myself mimicking those words to Lauren.

That did not seem like a fair or just explanation did it? But that’s all mama said and she expected an obedient response.

After the resurrection, when Mary Magdalene and other women went to the tomb, they found an open grave, guards who looked like dead men and an angel with the appearance of lightening and clothing white as snow, who had just rolled away the stone sealing Jesus’ grave. The angel said to these women,

“Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.

He is not here, for he has risen,

AS HE SAID.

Matthew 28:5-6 (my emphisis)

just AS HE SAID. Gosh, do we really believe that- Jesus did, is doing and will do just AS HE SAID?

The angel sent from Heaven, by God the Father, had a message for those women, for us as women…

Do not be afraid…Jesus has risen, AS HE SAID.

Today and throughout the weekend, please dwell in those 3 simple words of truth. Find hope in

AS HE SAID.

Find peace in

AS HE SAID.

Find great joy in

AS HE SAID.

Jesus will do exactly AS HE SAID.

Maybe the Holy Spirit has spoken a word to you that has not yet manifested itself in your life, remember…

AS HE SAID.

Keep going, keep trusting, keep believing- you can count on these God-breathed words of life-

AS HE SAID.

Do not be afraid, I am the same yesterday, today and tomorrowAS HE SAID.

I am the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the endAS HE SAID.

I came that you might have life, and have it in abundanceAS HE SAID.

I know the plans I have for you, and they are for your goodAS HE SAID.

Yes, think on all the promises found in God’s Word to us and take heart, for it is just

AS HE SAID.

Lord God, please roll away all the obstacles that block us from believing you! Arise and be huge in our lives reminding us continually all is just

AS HE SAID.
