The revelation of power

Matthew 11:25-27 / Luke 10:21-22…

Many worry because they just don’t seem to have a grip on things as much as others seem to. Yet Jesus gives us a cause for resting in Him right here in these verses. God reveals His will to the humble in heart. God values the vulnerable, those who trust and treasure what they have been born again to see, the kingdom of God. When we focus on whose we are and what we have been given in Christ (Ephesians 1:1-9), we realize that in the end, if we know God, we know all we truly need to know.

Things may be bad for us right now, but the end of the game is determined (Ephesians 1:10-14), and the goal for now is the same (1 Corinthians 10:31 / Philippians 1:21). To get back that vision of victory, what we need to do is regain our focus with a single eye (Matthew 5:8). Unlike those who do not know the ultimate revelation, we have no need to stockpile strength (Zechariah 4:6). This is not cause for pride, but for humility. When we regain our focus back to where it should be, with Jesus at the center (Psalm 37:4), all our triumphs and all our failures, all our gains and all our losses, all our knowledge, strength, health, wealth, anything and everything else is nothing compared to the surpassing worth of knowing Christ (Philippians  3:8).

This is why we can thank God at all times (1 Thessalonians 5:18), for no matter what happens, we have been given the revelation of ultimate power in the knowledge of Christ (2 Corinthians 4:6). We know the will of God to give us grace.  

If you have been given this revelation, it is your seed of peace. Keep planting it in your mind, your ministry, your family, your friends, your whole life and world, and watch the Prince of Peace reveal Himself.
