And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither. And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him. And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them. And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt? And they said, The Lord hath need of him. And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way. And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
On this Palm Sunday, in the midst of COVID-19 crisis, we still have something to celebrate and praise God. Although we are experiencing something that appears greater and bigger than us and our ability to defeat, we have a God in which we are empowered to own our situation and live. Living is not about the absence of conflict, obstacles, or challenges, instead it is about taking what God has given to us, all things, and exercising authority over them even in the face of death, defeat, or impossibility. God has promised, has spoken to our lives that He will never leave or forsake us and that alone gives us the opportunity, the space to celebrate the One who is our Conqueror and Deliver. Do not let life’s conflicts, obstacles, or challenges even COVID-19 rob you of your joy. Catch The Wind of God, His Spirit that assures us that no matter what we face, whether understood, uncertain, or unpredictable that we through God’s Spirit are released from it so that God can show us the way and flow in His presence, power, and promises. We release ourselves from our thoughts, our ideas, our fears, our anxieties and lay them before God and allow Him to come through and as He does He redeems us from all things and thus break the bondage of any and all things that would hinder. us from life and life more abundantly. What we have, possess, whether tangible or intangible, cannot cover us as well as Christ can, be released and experience God’s redemption in and through all things, exercising your Power Of Ownership. As we own our release and redemption, no matter the circumstance of our life change before us or not we can rejoice for our joy is not in things, including the conflicts, obstacles, or challenges, even COVID-19, but our joy is in the strength of the Lord, our conquering hero, Christ, Savior, Messiah, Anointed One. Exercise your Power of Ownership availing yourself of the benefits of release, redemption, and rejoicing in and through all things, including COVID-19, and live, Catch The Wind of God and be blown, flowing in the pathway of life and life more abundantly, no matter what. Rejoice, I say, in the Lord for you are free, covered, and strengthen in the assurance of His promises fulfilled in and to your life, Catch The Wind!
