“There are those who plotted against you and don’t know how you survived. And those who tried to bury you who did not know you were a seed. You popped up and started growing.” I saw this statement on the internet recently and wanted to share it with you because it is such a powerful way to convey the truth about Jesus’ life in you. It makes you indestructible, victorious, and more than a conqueror.
In this world you will experience troubles–all types. That is no secret. Jesus warned us to anticipate them. He also assured us of victory. But we need to believe and boldly declare what God has said concerning us.
That is what Jesus did as He faced the cross. In Luke 24, we see that He acknowledged the trouble He was going to face, but instead of giving in to doubt and fear, He made sure to boldly confess the victory His Father had promised Him. Jesus declared, “The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” (Luke 24:6 NKJV)
Jesus knew He was the Seed and being buried by trouble would only cause Him to “pop up and start growing.” But He made sure to confess His faith in that blessed reality. The rest is history. On the third day He arose.
Here is one of many powerful promises for you to claim:
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. (II Corinthians 2:14 NKJV)
Child of God, when He promises always to lead you in triumph, God means exactly what He says. He will cause you to triumph always, regardless of the circumstances. But you need to believe this promise to experience it personally. That means your attitude should always be one of victory and instead of going around confessing fear and defeat, you should be declaring boldly that God always causes you to triumph in Christ Jesus and that it is impossible for your story to ever end in defeat.
The Bible declares that as Jesus is, so are we in this world. Jesus Himself declared that because He lives, we will live also. Romans 8:37 proclaims we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. Now, all this leads to one inescapable conclusion: When trouble tries to bury you, you will “pop up and start growing.” Indestructible.
