It is what it is??

AMED 70.15

Home | A Miracle Every Day | Miracles | It is what it is??

As I was putting my makeup on one morning, a powerful thought came to me. I couldn’t help but drop everything so I could write it down to eventually share it with you!

On an extraordinary, divine scale, there was also a time when Jesus Himself dropped everything. His Word says, “Though He was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, He gave up His divine privileges; He took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When He appeared in human form, He humbled Himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross.” (Philippians 2:6-8, NLT)

Jesus relinquished everything to be a bondservant, be born as a human, and then suffer incomprehensible pain on the cross. Why would He do this? It was out of love! He didn’t just walk away from the cross, saying, “People sinned and brought this separation from God upon themselves. Nothing can be done…it is what it is.” With God, nothing ever ends with the sentence, “Nothing can be done…it is what it is”!

Yes, Jesus chose to suffer for YOU. Hebrews 12:2 says that He endured the cross because He saw the joy set before Him. You were that joy! The relationship you could have with Him if you’d choose it was Jesus’ “light at the end of the tunnel!” :-) 

In coaching conversations with women who have eating disorders, I sometimes ask, “Who would you like to get better for?” Usually, it’s for a child or godchild, a nephew, or someone they love very much. It’s not uncommon for me to see sufferers find freedom from their eating disorders this way. It’s true that the conversation often begins with “It is what it is”, but as soon as I ask them this “For whom…?” question, everything changes. There is so much power in love! 

In the book of John, we read, “‘Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.'” (John 15:13, NKJV)

Our God sees, and He loves. That’s why He couldn’t help but intervene 2,000 years ago, and this is still His character today! When you’re in pain, He doesn’t just stand by and think to Himself, “It is what it is.” Jesus, Himself, rose from the dead to show you that today, in your situation, nothing is impossible for Him.

Choose to believe today that Jesus WILL intervene in your situation and move on your behalf because He loves you! Yes, He will lead you to victory!

You are a miracle!

    Good Morning Deborah! Thank You for this message I needed to be encouraged today especially…and everyday! May God continue to bless you and all of our brothers and sisters. 🙇🕊👨‍👩‍👧‍👦💜☮️

    My hope is in our Heavenly Father Jesus to heal me and my husband emotionally and physically, restore our marriage, heal our daughter emotionally, and emotional healing and restoration of my biological family. We lost our Mom in April to CA and my brother tragically 1 month later. Also praying for salvation of my husband, daughter and lost family members who are not saved in Jesus’ name.

    ~+~ AMEN ~+~
