When we feel discouraged, let us remember that God is not dead. God is alive. God is working in every earnest heart that is humble and ready to receive Him.
When confusion rages– we must remember that there is a movement of people that is on its knees. A movement of people who believe in a God who is real. A movement of people that does not believe in charging crystals by moonlight or manifesting but that believes that they serve a real God. An all-powerful God. A God who cannot be stopped. A God outside of ourselves who offers to dwell in us and among us.
The church is not dead. I believe in my heart that the church is just getting started. The church will always rise up in the name of Jesus– covered by His blood of mercy, love and victory.
There is a generation rising to guard truth without compromise. We are the church. The church will never be extinguished because God holds it in His hand.
We are not called to something easy. We are called to a battle, where we must hold on and keep standing.
The church, generation after generation, rises from the ashes because the One who stands behind it is real. The purpose is real. The power of His blood is real, and nothing can and will ever defeat it.
So, in the name of Jesus, may the world know that we are here to stay. We are here to try to uplift humanity to see His life-changing love– even with all of our flaws.
In our imperfections, we believe we are redeemed, we are called, we are healed, we are equipped and by His grace, we will stand.
No matter what, we will stand. No compromise. The answer to our aching hearts and self-destruction is love. God is love. We will never stop– until the whole world hears.
The church is alive. Don’t forget it.
