“So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body” (1 Corinthians 15:42-44).
These seemingly simple words relay thoughts so profound that we are barely able to grasp them. We may be guilty of thinking along the lines that this existence is all there is. We may think that it is a single line going forward. Think about the depth and breadth of God, His creation, and the promises He has given You. Know that there is more, much more ahead for His people.
Lord, teach me to walk again that I would walk with You in a new way. Teach me to see again that I would see in a new way. Teach me to think again that I would think differently. Teach me to live as You are preparing me to live. Fill me from the inside out with all that is needed for what is to come. Help me to trust You each step of the way, knowing You are accomplishing all that is needed.
Lord Jesus, You know anxiety. You know all of the difficulties of this age and those things that get in the way of faith. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth, that following You, I would learn and grow in preparation for all that is to come. Guide me to see that You have come, experienced death and the resurrection in order for those who have faith to follow You in the way of truth. Amen.
