There Is Power in the Blood!

For you know that your lives were ransomed once and for all from the empty and futile way of life handed down from generation to generation. It was not a ransom payment of silver and gold, which eventually perishes, but the precious blood of Christ—who like a spotless, unblemished lamb was sacrificed for us. | 1 Peter 1:18-19 (TPT)

As we are entering into the first day of Passover, the Lord is continuing to highlight to me the power of the blood of Jesus. The words from the old hymn “The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power” has been playing over and over in my spirit:

The blood that Jesus shed for me
Way back on Calvary
The blood that gives me strength
From day to day
It will never lose its power.

It reaches to the highest mountain
And it flows to the lowest valley
The blood that gives me strength
From day to day
It will never lose its power.

It soothes my doubts and calms my fears
And it dries all my tears
The blood that gives me strength
From day to day
It will never lose its power.

Beloved, the blood of Jesus Christ is powerful. In the story of the first Passover, the Jewish people applied the blood of a sacrificed lamb to their doorposts so that they would be protected from the final plague that God had sent to Egypt. Even today, we can apply the powerful blood of Jesus Christ over our homes and our lives as we set our eyes on the One who was sacrificed for us: the Lamb of God.

“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt” (Exodus 12:13).

Romans 3:24-25 says, “all are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith.” As I took communion this morning, I was reminded of the price that Jesus paid so that we could walk in complete wholeness: healed, free, and delivered from any plague or sickness. This is our portion in Him! The Lord delights in rescuing His people. Whatever you are currently experiencing, His arm is mighty to save, heal, and deliver you. I encourage you today to take communion and meditate on His covenant with you, for truly there is power in the blood of Jesus Christ! His eye is lovingly upon you as He is watching over your life, protecting you from all harm. Even in the midst of the turbulence and shaking that’s taking place in the world today, the Lord is reminding us that He is completely in control. The blood of the Lamb will never lose its power!

He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart (Psalm 91:4).

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life (Psalm 121:7).
