“It Doesn’t Matter”
“When Jesus therefore, had received the vinegar, he said: It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up his spirit.” John 19:30

Happy Resurrection Sunday to all! I give God praise for His many blessings; especially the gift of Christ and eternal life! To all my fellow believers, may this day just be added extension of your daily praise, worship, and thanksgiving to the Father for His grace and mercy. To those who may follow a different path; I pray for you and give God honor for you. May this day be all that you pray and hope for.
I pray today’s Reflections brings comfort and peace to your heart and mind. I decree it be a continued source of encouragement and inspiration. Allow the power of the resurrection to resonate in your soul. Spend quality time in the Father’s presence, learning of Him and His wonderful gift to you. Only then will you truly comprehend that outside of what God has spoken, it just doesn’t matter.
One of the greatest things I have learned in my walk with God is that once He has spoken and declared a thing, it doesn't matter what anyone else says. It doesn't matter what the circumstances or situations dictate. It doesn't matter how hard the devil tries—he loses every time. Whatever God says…that’s what it is!
Once Jesus decided to come into the earth and follow the Father's will, that was it. His and our fates were sealed for the rest of eternity. When they nail Him to the Cross; when He took His last breath and spoke his last words and said: "It is finished". Everything else that would try and separate us from God no longer mattered. The plots and plans of the enemy lost its power. The venom lost its poison and death lost its sting.
What many of us fail to remember when we are going through life's trials and tests, is that nothing and no one trumps what God has spoken concerning our lives. And the only person with the power to stop and hinder us is ourselves. We hold the power. We have the authority. But too often we yield it to the enemy because of fear, and giving too much power to him, when what he says doesn't matter when God has already declared and decreed us the victorious.
My Beloveds, may the spirit of peace and prosperity find permanent rest in your lives. I decree that every good thing that God has ordained for your life will become evident to you. It doesn't matter, Beloved. It doesn't matter what the enemy says, tries, or who he uses when you truly believe in your heart what God says concerning you. Trust God. He cannot lie. Your bill has already been paid in full. You are blessed. Now go…and be a blessing!
