We all know Jesus has come. We sing songs about His birth and place tiny Baby Jesus images all around our houses and churches at Christmas. We know Jesus came to this earth, that He lived and died…But, we’re still waiting on the promise of The Christ.
If we really, truly believed that Christ has come, we would understand the scripture that says, “He HAS blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” (Eph 1:3)
God has already healed you: “With His stripes, we ARE healed.” (1 Pet 2:24)
God has already given you peace: “ Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto
you.” (John 14:27)
God has already blessed your finances: “The LORD shall open unto thee his
good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to
bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou
shalt not borrow.” – Deut 28:12
God has already restored your relationships: “As the Father hath loved me, so
have I loved you: continue ye in my love…This is my commandment, That ye
love one another, as I have loved you.” – John 15: 9/12
God has already supplied all your need: “But my God shall supply all your need
according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” – Phil 4:19
Paul, the apostle, was a good Jew who waited for the Messiah to come. Even after his conversion to Christ, he found himself waiting, waiting, waiting on God. When he asked God three times to take care of his problem, God said to him, “My grace is sufficient.” God had already done what Paul asked Him to do. He had already given him the grace to rule and reign in life through Christ (Rom 5:17). God had already given Paul the victory (1 Cor 15:57). Paul needed to remind himself that he wasn’t waiting on God… God had already provided.
As you are packing up all your tiny Jesus figures from the Christmas season, keep in mind that He is more than the baby in the manger. He is the Head of Christ, and we are His Body. As such, we are joint heirs with Him to all the promises of God that have already been delivered. We are not waiting on Him anymore! Now, we are to take what He has given and use our authority to restore His Kingdom in this earth.
NO MORE WAITING!!!
