Easter. Jesus is risen! Hallelujah!
Well, I pray all have had a wonderful Easter holiday! This Easter, for me, was filled with much reflection - especially around the Risen Lord. This entire day I was drawn into His presence over and over - words of prayer and songs of joy could not contain themselves and flowed forth from my mouth. It was one of those days, that I could have lost myself completely in the Presence of the Lord, but when there are people around, losing yourself completely gets hindered. That being said, it was not a bad thing by any means, perhaps others were blessed by my behaviour.(?)
We never know who is watching us. This is not something that we should be paranoid about, rather, if our eyes are fixed on Jesus, our heart beating with His, our steps in pace with His (or at least we are attempting to keep focused and paced with our King), others observing us, should see Him in and through our words and actions.
And though we may never really know the impact of our behaviour and prayers on others - in the natural or in the spiritual realms; we trust that God will work in us and though us to His Glory.
Don't hide your love and praise of our God and King. Be filled with the Spirit to His glory -whether in private, in your work, or in community...focus on Jesus and trust Him to work in us and through us.
May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. ~Hebrews 13:20-21
