Jer 20:9 "Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But [his word] was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not [stay]."
When the times are the darkest, the pain is the most intense and the temptation to give up hovers over you like a cloak of pending death, to those of us who understand the importance of what this Holiday weekend represents, Something inside rises up! Something on the inside that says "Be strong and Courageous! Something that reminds us that unless a seed falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone. But if it dies, it will bear Much fruit!" Something on the inside speaks to our spirit and says, "This too, shall pass! Just give me "Three Days"! Greater is He that abides on the inside of you than he who is in the world."
Rom 8:11 "But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you."
You gain an inner strength that awakens during adversity, and what might have intimidated you before, becomes bread for you now. You no longer see your adversary as a threat, but you realize that Somebody greater than you, greater than the giant in front of you and greater than anything that can come against you is really working with YOU!
The sleeping giant inside of you arises and when you open up your mouth, the words you speak are no longer solidifying the situation you find yourself in, but begins to prophesy what echoes from within the heavenly places of your spirit. Our spirit is now bearing witness with The Holy Spirit and we find that as we make our abode in His word and His Word is abiding in us, we can now speak what He speaks and ask what we will and It is Done!
We cannot hold back telling of His Goodness! We cannot refute His tender Mercies and His Loving Kindness toward us! It is apparent! His Glory is made known through the adversity that came to destroy us! He is made bigger in the eyes of those who watched on, those who prayed for you and those who even aided and a bedded in what was suppose to be our demise. The weapon the enemy used to humiliate, undermine and crucify us, only served to build the crowd of witnesses so the Glory of God could be seen through the resurrection life of that dead situation.
You've been in a holding pattern in the grave of an old season in your life! Somewhere within the three days of having borne your cross.
Jhn 2:19 "Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
Just as Jesus' crucifiction seemed to be the end and death had won, On the third day, the grave was void of the body of which temporarily occupied it. And just as the winter season takes on a lifeless form, and Spring announces to the dormancy "it's time to revive and bloom". Take an assessment of what looks to be dead but God says is "alive"! Open up your mouth and begin to prophesy!
Eze 37:3 -5 "And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:"
When the Spirit of the Most High is inside of you, you won't be able to resist the urgency to speak "Life" to what God has said is alive!
Remember "Death and Life are in the Power of YOUR tongue" Eat of the fruit of "Life"! You are approaching the Third Day! The Resurrection is inside of you! This is what it is!!!
