GET UP!!! Luke 8:54-56

GET UP!!!



Luke 8:54-56 NIV
But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!”  Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.




Greetings!


BlogFam - As we come to the end of this passage of scripture in this part of the HOPE & HEALING series, I have mixed feelings.  I have mixed feelings because I have enjoyed our journey through Luke 8: 40-56 but I know that some of you are still waiting for the Lord to grant you signs of life in whatever you are facing right now.  I know that you are possibly resting in the HOPE of the Lord but have yet to see the HEALING of the Lord manifested in your life or in the lives of those for whom you have been interceding.


It is not always easy to WAIT on the Lord to manifest the promises in His Word but BE ENCOURAGED!  BlogFam, there is NO better person to wait on than the Lord! And when the Lord speaks, something will happen within you and your situation that will give you HOPE and HEALING in His own time and in His own way.


We are at the place in the text where Jesus speaks directly to this little girl who has already been pronounced dead just a few verses earlier.  He is in the room with those who LOVE Him and those who LOVE this little girl and Jesus

 "...took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!”  


MY CHILD, GET UP!


BlogFam, perhaps, on today this is the word for you.  
MY CHILD, GET UP!


Have you been lying around playing dead, showing no signs of life, and avoiding the scary or intimidating situations in your life?  


There are people who have been waiting on YOU to get yourself together.  There are people who have been waiting on YOU to get started on all of the plans, projects, and personal/professional pursuits that you used to dream and talk about weeks, months, and even years ago.  There are people who have been waiting on YOU to GET UP!  They love the Lord and they really do love you but for some reason, you have loss so much in life that you feel stuck and you have been stagnant for some time now and they do not even know what to say or how to pray anymore.  The best that they can do is tell you to GET UP!


MY CHILD, GET UP!


That is all that Jesus said to this little girl that everyone thought was dead.  They were already preparing her funeral and wearing mourning clothes. And you might feel the same way.  You might feel like people are looking at you as if there is NO hope and NO possibility of healing BUT on today, I pray that you would hear the words of the Lord in this verse as if they are being spoken for the very first time directly to YOU!


MY CHILD, GET UP!

And when Jesus spoke those words in Luke 8...
Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. 


I think this is AMAZING! And I am crazy enough to believe that the same can happen for those in our BlogFam who may have given up.  YOU can GET UP and your spirit, your energy, your vitality, your passion, your will to live life to the fullest can return.  YOU can STAND UP and move from this place where others and even yourself wanted to think things were over, done, finished, and dead.  YOU can GET UP and YOU can STAND UP!


MYCHILD, GET UP!
Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. 


I know that sounds so simple but when you GET UP, you need to EAT!  You need to be strengthened in your mind, your body, and your spirit.  You need to be mindful to "EAT" what will give you the nutrients you need to fulfill God's will for your life from this point on.  You need to EAT the right things to sharpen your mental capacity, to strengthen your physical well-being, and to build up your spiritual maturity.  You cannot go back to eating the same way you were eating BEFORE this time.  You have got to eat better!  You have been given another chance to GET UP, so EAT RIGHT!


MY CHILD, GET UP!  GET UP!  GET UP!

And tell every person, place, or thing around you to GET UP!  Do not take for granted that you will get this chance to live again, so, while there is still breath in your body, GET UP and LIVE AGAIN!!!


God Loves You and I Do Too!!!
