“They started laughing at Him, because they knew she was dead. So He took her by the hand and called out, “Child, get up! ” Her spirit returned, and she got up at once. Then He gave orders that she be given something to eat.”
Luke 8:52-55 HCSB
Good morning, DearHeart, Restoration is one of my favorite things. When Jesus gives it, it releases us from the stuck place and allows us to move and work and wonder with a freshly inspired motivation.
We see Him in fresh light.
We see every soul in fresh light.
The enemy uses our experiences to try to keep us stuffed down and keep us as dead as possible. Christ uses the enemy’s evil agenda as a platform to do His most amazing work. I love that.
What has you stuck? What is keeping you dead?
Try this – put that experience on a stage in a dark theater where you are the only one in the audience. As you see that person or event or thing that you resent most on stage, feel the Holy Spirit rise up in you.
Now envision good things happening to it/them – things that would change it from heavy to meaningful and light for them. As they leave the stage, fulfilled, let that thought dissolve and fade. Now, imagine you on that stage – and hear His voice, “Child, get up”. He is speaking to you. Feel the pure loving eyes of Christ filling you with His light. See good things happening to you through His presence. See you smiling, happy, vibrant, aware that you are living in abundance.
If you lose focus, try again after while. If you just can’t get past resentment, or hurt, ask God to help you release the pain.
His plan is for you, not against you.
Now, move forward in His plan for you and yours.
“Child, get up.”
