It was Saturday and the Apostles and believers were incredibly disheartened, because on Friday their Lord had been brutally beaten and crucified and they had lost all hope. Little did they know that tomorrow, Praise God, tomorrow was a new day and a new hope of the Resurrection. Luke 24 tells us of the angels saying in Verse 6: “He is not here, but is risen…” We have that same hope! 1 Corinthians 6:14 tells us: “And God hath both raised up the Lord and will also raise up us by his own power.” On Easter Sunday, let’s remember the cost Jesus paid for us and praise Him for His resurrection power. God bless you!
Trouble can be a good thing or a bad thing. It can harden our heart and make us angry and bitter or it can bring us closer to God and strengthen our trust in Him. Even when Jesus was going to the cross for us he was trusting in his Father. Psalm 73:26 teaches us “My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.” When trials come – and they will – put your trust in Him. God bless you!
