“Early Sunday morning”, the Scripture tells us that there was a great earthquake that shook the earth and from it, the angel of the Lord came down; rolled away the stone that was on the grave and sat on it. This simply shows that God wanted to demonstrate His power by getting His son out of the grave and nothing would hinder Him from achieving just that.
The Resurrection of our Lord Jesus was a clear demonstration that God is still in the business of empowering his people even as He did the Christ, He is still raising and empowering men and women all around the world to live to the fullness of their potential in life.
And this should be your mind and consciousness as you go about your business and work today that the resurrection power of God is activated in your life and in all you do.
SCRIPTURE READING: Matthew 28:2-7 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, as this knowledge comes to me, may I experience the power of resurrection working in and through my life in Jesus name, Amen.
