We received a welcome surprise this morning here at our ranch. A new foal was born today! I thought how appropriate that a new birth would happen as we celebrate Resurrection weekend. For me there is nothing more beautiful than the promise of new life both in the natural and the spiritual. Every wonderous thing we see in this earth mirrors what our heavenly Father is doing in the spirit realm.
As I watched the new foal with her mother I was reminded of the price that was paid by Jesus on the cross and His resurrection so that I too could experience new life. What a revelation of love awaits all of mankind and creation. It is not a one time gift – it is a gift that we can receive over and over, and one that is full of surprises!! So maybe you are feeling a little dry, dull, confused and just plain lost. Jesus is the answer to every question you might have. I know it may sound “quite trite” to hear this since as Americans we are so saturated in the “gospel message” but it is the truth. Jesus’ blood that was poured out thousands of years ago offers each one of us not only a new birth but a continual revelation of love filled with all of the goodness, grace, mercy, joy, peace, healing and prosperity of heaven. God’s goodness is infinite as His love is towards you!
So as I gaze at our new foal and watch him kick up his his hind legs and prance around his mother, I smile. Yes new life is a God given gift and one that causes me to kick up my heels as well!
“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” [Jesus Christ - John 11:25, 26]
