When Jesus Walks Into Your Room
“That evening, the disciples gathered together. And because they were afraid of reprisals from the Jewish leaders, they had locked the doors to the place where they met. But suddenly Jesus appeared among them and said, “Peace to you!” Then he showed them the wounds of his hands and his side—they were overjoyed to see the Lord with their own eyes! Jesus repeated his greeting, “Peace to you!” And he told them, “Just as the Father has sent me, I’m now sending you.” Then, taking a deep breath, he blew on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. I send you to preach the forgiveness of sins—and people’s sins will be forgiven. But if you don’t proclaim the forgiveness of their sins, they will remain guilty.””
John 20:19-23 TPT
In this passage you find the disciples afraid and locked in a room in hiding. Their Lord and Savior had been crucified and their world has been flipped upside down. What they understood of Jesus was He was the Son of God and He was going to set them free from captivity. They thought from Rome but Jesus had something that would not only set them free from bondage but set anyone who believed in Him free from bondage.
So you find the disciples hiding as often we do when our world is turned upside down. And Jesus walks right into their trouble and does something that sets the whole atmosphere in order. He speaks Peace.
When we are at our darkest point, not knowing where to turn we have a Savior that will walk right into our problem and say one word that sets every emotion in order. Peace.
I don’t know what you are facing on this day, I don’t know the troubles that has turned your world upside down. But what I do know is I serve a God that can walk right through the wall you have put up and speak directly into your life in a way that whatever it is that is haunting you has to leave. When the Lion of the Tribe of Judah walks into your situation no enemy stands a chance. I pray that you live in the Power of His word and live a life of total Peace.
