Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
But 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. – Rom. 8:11

The Holy Spirit raised Jesus from the dead:

But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.” – Matt. 28:5-6

When the disciples went to check on Jesus in the tomb, they found Him gone. He was risen! Notice that Jesus didn’t have to try and raise Himself from the dead. His Spirit did all the work. By virtue of the Spirit in Him, Jesus ascended from death into resurrection life!

The same Spirit now dwells in you. You abide in Christ, and His Spirit dwells in you! The same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead will bring Resurrection life into every area of your life that seems dead and needs an injection from Heaven!

Not even death could hold Jesus down. You have His Spirit! So what on earth could possibly stop you?

Prayer:

Father, thank You for filling me with Your Spirit. I am not going to try and make Resurrection life happen! I am simply going to trust Your Holy Spirit and let Him do the work.
