In Luke 7, Jesus arrives in a town called Nain. A large crowd followed Jesus as he approached the gates of the city, a dead person was being carried out to be buried by a widow. When Jesus saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.” Luke 7:14-16 says, “Then he went up and touched the coffin, and those carrying it stood still. Jesus said, “Young man, I say to you, get up!” The dead man sat up and begin to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother. They were filled with awe and praised God.” Can you just imagine what this young man was talking about!
Get up Church! Many believers allow their pain and sorrow to control them. We let our setbacks and mistakes define us. Jesus wants to set you free, but you have to be willing to walk out of your prison. It’s time to get up, and move on! Psalm 40:1-3 says this, “I wait patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slime pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him!” No more slime, no more mud, no more shaky ground. Get up and sing a new song! Everything we do is in response to what God has already done. Love you guys!
