He sprang Up in Spring
This is the Lambing Season when the sheep farmer after encouraging them to mate, expects them to make him smile, deliver the goods and make his eyes sparkle as the till rings with music of money. Why? Because of the Lambs that are born-spring up in the Spring season.
Is it coincidental that even at this time we think of not only spring but the Springing up- the Crucifixion and the Resurrection of the Lamb of God that was slain to take away the sin of this world?
At this time as daffodils spring up we think of the most poignant event in the Christian calendar -Easter.
Easter is not about Easter eggs, but about the crucifixion and the resurrection.
Jesus told Mary: “Your brother will rise again…He that believeth in me, even though he dies, yet shall he live… I am the resurrection and the life.”
So my friend I prophesy to you in this season if you believe in the Son of God, your dream shall live and not die. Your dream shall spring up to the glory of God.
Jesus said, “Behold I am He that was dead, but I’m alive and alive for evermore…”
Therefore keep your dream alive!
It is written “Grave, where is your victory. Death, where is your sting. For He had swallowed up death in victory. Thanks be to God who gives us the victory. Thanks be to God who leads us into triumph. If God be for us, who can be against us?
Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors.
Christ in us, the hope of glory.
He rose up, so rise up from every, prostration, frustration and depression, retrogression, stagnation, demotivation. He rose up!
You too can spring up. RISE UP. Spring up!
