When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, "It is finished," and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30
So often in life we can feel like we have run out of options. We feel trapped by circumstances. We start to allow the voice of the enemy to get louder telling us our situation will never change.
In death, here God displays that choice is never taken away. Jesus' enemies finally believed that they got him, defeated him, dealt the fatal blow. What they didn't realise was that in his death he would bring about such an incredible situation that would not only rock their world but would change the course of history for eternity.
At the point they thought they had finally overpowered him he actually choose to give up his spirit and finish the rescue mission he was sent for. Seeming defeat turned into eternal victory. Now we can rest in the fact that the work is done. It is finished.
Every fear that the enemy can throw at you has been dealt with at the cross. The resurrection life of Jesus empowers you now to respond in faith and confidence to any battle. Meditate today on the incredible work of the cross and receive the abundance of grace Christ died to bring you.
