Alive and Well

I just wanted you to know that I am alive and well. By alive, I mean that I have been quickened by the Spirit of the Lord. The circumstances of life have tried to triumph over me, tried to make me feel that my purpose was dead. But thanks be to God! He let me know that if I have the Spirit of God inside of me, I can be raised, even from the dead.

Romans 8:11 says, "But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you." This word lets us know that if we have been filled with the Spirit, the same power that raised Christ Jesus will also raise us. The power that raised Christ can pick you up even when the weight of the world is piled on top of you.

And not only am I alive, I am well! My soul is prospering. I am encouraged to move forward in the Lord, despite (or maybe because of) the challenges I have faced. The word of God gives us power to continue to make progress. Jesus said, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." He wants us to live life to the fullest extent.

My wish for you is the same as that expressed in 3 John 2: "Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers." Be encouraged to consider yourself alive and well no matter what is happening in your life. You can make it!
