“So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, ‘It is finished!’ And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit” John 19:30, NKJV.
Notice Jesus didn’t say it was finished after He rose. He said it was finished when He died, paying a dear price for you and me. However, for those observing Him on the cross, it didn’t look like He finished anything. Yet, this is the power of a finished perspective.
Today, Jesus became the complete sacrifice for your sins, and through Him, every blessing and every victory freely flows in your life. It may not look like God isn’t doing anything, but just like in three days Jesus was at work, taking the keys of hell and the grave, so is He at work on your behalf.
Because of the Son, choose not to wait until you rise to see the blessing. Don’t wait to receive joy and peace until you rise. No matter what your current situation looks like, or what you’re going through, Jesus said it’s finished.
Prayer: Thank You Jesus for laying down your life so that I could pick up mine. I thank You that it’s finished. Since it was finished on the cross, it is finished in my life. I receive it, Father. I rejoice over Your truth. Help me to always see my life from a finished perspective. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
