The Living Dead

  • You were made alive when you were dead in transgressions and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the powers of the air, the spirit who now works in the children of disobedience; among whom we also all once lived in the lust of our flesh, doing the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)' Ephesians 2:1 WEB

    Another night, another party, we were always playing a gig somewhere in the band that I was in. We played music about six nights a week, and sometimes twice a day on the weekends. At first it was a lot of fun, but eventually it became just another job filled with very late hours, and heavy speakers.

    We often had the same people that would come to hear us and eventually I knew every couple on the dance floor, and what song they were going to dance to. Though I was always on stage, and looked the life of the party, I felt pretty empty. There was something was missing in my life.

    One night while playing on stage, the Holy Spirit came into the bar and changed my life. In a flash, in the middle of playing a song and without missing a chord, my priorities were transformed. He gave me a third person view of my current life, and then what He had to offer.

    I was living dead. I finished the set, put up my bass, went home and into my bedroom, laid on the floor and poured my heart out to God. That was a Saturday night. The next morning, I got up and went to a near by church. I have never been the same. I found what was missing, or more accurately, He found me.

    You can live while dead and empty inside, but you do not have to. Jesus resurrected the dead and gave them life. He can resurrect the spirit inside of you and relight that fire that has gone out. It is never too late to get a fresh start and be revived. The joy and the fire can be restored. The emptiness can be filled. You do not have to be the living dead.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for taking care of me and bringing me this far. Forgive me of my sins, give me a clear vision, and help me become the person that You created me to be, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer" (Psalm 17:6) If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Amen thank you pastor Dion for sharing your story. I myself was empty. I grow up in the church and read God’s word but I was still empty when I pour out my heart to God that void that was missing in my life was restored. believe in transformation it work after I allowed God into my heart and soul that void was fill. We can look to people and things to fill our heart and soul but all those things are temporarily. Only God alone can fill the voids and emptyness in our lives.
