Stay Connected to His Resurrection Power
By Joel Osteen - Apr 18, 2014

In John 11:25, Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me shall never die."

What an amazing and simplistic promise. We don't have to work to earn salvation. We don't have to strive to be "good enough." All we have to do is believe in Jesus—who He is and what He did for us on the cross over 2,000 years ago.

When we believe in Jesus, we experience His resurrection life. His power flows through us, and our spirit becomes born again. We become alive. In the same way, anything that you place "in Him" becomes alive. He is the source of life, and when you place your hope in Him, your hope becomes alive. When you place your trust in Him, your trust becomes alive. When you place your dreams in Him, your dreams become alive. That's why John tells us in scripture to remain in Him like a branch remains connected to a vine because when we stay connected to Him, we stay connected to His resurrection power.

Today, if there is any area of your life that needs to be resurrected, if there is a relationship, a dream, a hope or desire that is lying dormant, place it in the hands of Almighty God. In faith, turn it over to Him by simply declaring, "Father, I trust You. I place this into Your hands knowing that You are the One who can resurrect the dead places and bring my dreams to pass."

Then, trust that He will work things out for your good. Praise Him while you wait. Stay faithful to His Word and experience His resurrection power in every area of your life!

Happy Resurrection Weekend!
