Devo Not by might
Romans 8:11 (NIV)
11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of[a] his Spirit who lives in you.
This is an incredibly powerful verse. We tend to forget that Jesus was a man and that he did indeed bleed and die, but the Holy Spirit raised Him back to life. Abraham offered his son Isaac on an altar to God and reason that God would raise him from the dead. He knew that the Spirit of God could raise him up since he was a child of promise. We also are children of a promise, therefore can reason that the Spirit of God will also raise us from sickness to life. Elisha died and was in the grave when they threw a man’s body in his grave and he rose from the dead. Now if Elisha’s bones, which had the Spirit of God come and go in his life, but not remaining as it did in Jesus’s life and ours (John 1:32), had enough residue of that Spirit to raise a dead man ; then how much more so if the living Spirit is on us.
