DEVO 03.29.24

DEVO. 03.29.24

“Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last.” (Luke‬ ‭23:46‬)‭

- These are Jesus’ very last words on the Cross!

- When He said, “It is Finished” (John 19:30), He was declaring that the work that He had been sent to do was complete.

- His work of redemption had been accomplished.

- The debt for our sin had been paid in full.

- The plan of salvation was established.

- And now He says, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”

- He is quoting Psalm 31:5.

- This is a Psalm that every Jew would pray at night before going to bed.

- And Jesus shouted it.

- He is saying, Father, “My life is in your hands!”

- He is saying, “I am trusting you with everything!”

- At what we would call His lowest moment, He Trusts God with His Life!

- He is placing His life in the safest hands that He knows.

- He is trusting His life in the hands that places the stars in the sky (Psalm 8:3)

- Psalm 95:4 says, “In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.”

- He is the God of the Mountain and the valley!

- The word “commit” can also mean deposit.

- It can mean to deposit something for the safekeeping of another person.

- It’s like a safety deposit box.

- You place things there that you don’t want broken, damaged or stolen.

- Jesus is saying , “Father, my life is deposited in you”.

- Father, my life is protected by you!

- If Jesus can do that with His life, shouldn’t you?

- What is the thing that you are still holding on to?

- What is the thing that you worry about the most?

- Can you take that thing and trust God with it?

- Can you say, “God, I trust you with my life.”?

- Can you trust Him with your kids?

- Can you trust Him with you finances?

- Can you trust Him with your Relationship?

- What is the thing that you keep taking back?

- The thing that you trust yourself with more than you trust God?

- Today , I encourage you to say to God, “Into Your hands, I commit All!”

- All that I have been holding onto and all that I am...I trust you, God!

- That place where you have been hurt the most, say, “Father, I trust you”

- Tell Him, “It’s yours, and leave it in His hands”

- Can you trust Him?

- Have a Good Friday!
