During church this past Sunday morning, I was worshipping to a song titled, “Waymaker.” While I clapped my hands to the beat of the drums, my mind drifted off as it is prone to do. While I silently sang the words, this thought passed through my mind: It’s in my DNA. For those that are not aware, I have a degree in Criminal Justice. Often, I have read case after case where defending attorneys have used “it’s in their DNA to be evil” as a reason to explain why criminals perpetuate heinous crimes on an unsuspecting society. “It’s in their blood!”
I continued to worship but tears filled my eyes. When I received the Holy Ghost, I received a blood transfusion. The blood of Jesus Christ flows through me. Today is Father’s Day, and my daddy is all powerful in heaven and in earth. There is power in the blood of Jesus, power to wash away the sin of the world, power to take a broken mess and make something new. I am so thankful that God didn’t leave me the way that He found me, instead he cleansed me of my sin and filled me with His spirit. In Christ Jesus I am a new creature, and there is victory in the blood! “It’s in my DNA!”
If life has you down, look unto the hills from whence cometh your help. Take comfort in the knowledge that you have royal blood flowing through your veins. We are more than overcomers through the grace of our Lord Jesus. I had to share this, because deep in my soul I feel this spring bubbling up within me! The last thing I will share is this, the cure for a snake bite is lamb’s blood. Who is the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world? None other than Jesus! Regardless of what the enemy plans, nothing can stop the will of Jesus! I am eternally grateful that God put this in my heart. God bless each of you! He is my Waymaker!
