And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). -Mark 15:34
All through the ministry of Jesus, he made it clear that the source of all inspiration and strength was his communion with the Father. From his baptism at Jordan when God said to him you are my son in whom I’m well pleased (Mk.1:11) to transfiguration, when God affirmed him among three of the disciples; he cherished the unbroken presence of the father.
For many generations, God has prepared for this day, why will God now forsake the son on the cross? I know many reason have been given for this, but I haven’t found any of them plausible. In my opinion, God didn’t forsake his son at all, Jesus only quoted from this great psalm to connect the bystanders to the fulfilment of the scriptures.
Sometimes we go through situations that make us wonder if God is still there. When it looks like the devil has the upper hand, it is only a smokescreen, God is there all along. There are things you must need go through to build your strength.
In the end, if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. -Romans 8:11
The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. Deuteronomy 33:27
The Lord hasn’t brought you this far to let you down, He hasn’t taught you to swim only to watch you drown. He will not let you fall.
I see you rise above every challenge, go back to His promises to you, God says, “I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.” It is still your year of Divine Overflow.
