A WALK IN THE CEMETERY
Ask the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, to give you the Spirit, who will make you wise and reveal God to you, so that you will know Him. (Ephesians 1:17 Good News Bible)
The language of faith or redemption gives us access to the supernatural. Mark Hankins
I remember walking through a large cemetery with my dad when I was a little boy. I particularly noticed the word “veteran” on many of the markers. I even commented to my dad about the large number of “veterans” in the cemetery. My dad just responded, “Yes, there sure are a lot of veterans in this cemetery.” My dad did not realize that I thought a veteran was a veterinarian. We were saying the same word but with two totally different pictures. My dad saw someone who served in the military, but I saw an animal doctor. As a child, I wondered why so many “veterans” had died at the same time — maybe they had all been bitten and got rabies.
Even though my dad and I were saying the same thing, we definitely were not seeing the same thing. We must understand the language of redemption and effectively speak it. The Gospel of Christ is a language of power; it is the power of God working in this world.
Confession: The revelation of God is causing things to turn around for me right now! “O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee forever.” (Psalm 30:12)
