“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone….14Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.” Hebrews 2:9, 14-15
A certain primary schoolteacher asked his pupils to tell him what they want to be when they grow up. He asked the class to close their eyes and envision themselves as adults and what they will be like. After few minutes of serious mediation hands were flying in the air. The teacher got responses such as to become a doctor, teacher, pilot, engineer, country president, pastor etc. Then one of the pupil who was last to raise the hand said when I closing my eyes I am seeing darkness.
When you look into your future, career, marriage relationship, eternity, day today what do you see, do you see darkness as that pupil or you see success?
When you look into your marriage see Jesus,
When you look into your health see Jesus,
When you look into your heart see Jesus,
When you look into your problems see Jesus,
When you look into your needs see Jesus,
Whenever you look into something troubling or interesting you today see Jesus,
Jesus saw death, sickness, evilness, worries and humbled himself to take the very nature of man. He became an ordinary human being in order to destroy death and the devil. You an ordinary person seeing Jesus can destroy the problems and wicked manifestations in your life. When athletes are in the tracks their focus is on the finishing point. The more and the clearer they see the finishing point and not anyone ahead of them the sure they are to win the race. The problem with your life is that you see the devil in the problem and get defeated. Whenever you look into your goals and plans you start to see difficulties, challenges problems and as a result you fail. You need to see Jesus in all you do. Jesus overcame everything, destroyed death and the one holding it-the devil. Most of us see Jesus on the cross, in the grave, being troubled beaten by the roman solders. That’s a wrong vision. That vision will not see you succeeding. Its true Jesus was crucified but He rose, its true Jesus was buried but he defeated the powers of death, its true Jesus was troubled but he won at the end.
When problems rise like a mountain just see Jesus crowned with honor and glory. That’s the vision of victory. That’s the vision of an over comer. That’s the vision of winners. A crown is given to winners. Now earthly crown are given gold, silver or bronze as their glory and honor. But Jesus is crowned with the glory of divine power honored with a great and powerful Name that can shake and crumble all strongholds. That’s when you see problems through the name Jesus Christ, nothing will remain but victory. All problems will disappear. Sickness will fall. Poverty will not stand. Nothing with a name will remain standing it will bow down.
