THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: RECOVERY AND RESURRECTION…A POWERFUL DIMENSION THAT GOD HAS INSTALLED IN HIS CREATION. These are two of the miraculous attributes of God that He set in motion when He created. The seasons pass from life beginning, (Spring) to life coming to full fruition, (Summer) to the beginnings of dormancy, (Autumn) to death, (Winter)….THEN?…RECOVERY AND RESURRECTION. We witness this year after year. It is a reminder and an expression of who God is. He is a God of recovery and resurrection. Not even sin could stop this process, things changed with sin, but recovery and resurrection still are manifesting themselves all around us. I was reminded of this with Renee breaking her hip. Broken, pain and in this case the body is not able to recover back to health. Sometimes recovery and resurrection involve what we do. A doctor or surgeon co-operates with the attributes that God has created. They can predict how the recovery will go and make the determination that there will be a type of resurrection for something broken and deteriorating to complete health. The farmer does something similar. All the dynamics are present for the seed to grow and become a harvest. God put the potential in the seed but the farmer has to know what to do with it in order for it to explode into life an fruitfulness. Jesus Himself, being Creator, was able to utilize the power already installed in His creation and command healing and recovery. [Luke 4:18] “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to HEAL the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And RECOVERY of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed…” Jesus is not doing anything outside the boundaries of how He intended His creation to function. THANK GOD FOR JESUS AND THE INTRINSIC POSSIBILITY THAT RESIDES IN CREATION TO RECOVER, HEAL AND RESURRECT…AND…THANK GOD FOR THE ABLITY WE HAVE TO UTILIZE THE PRINCIPLES IMBEDDED IN CREATION TO FOSTER HEALING AND RECOVERY.
