Good afternoon y’all. Thanks be to God we made it through the book of Matthew. We will be studying the last chapter today 🙂
Few announcements for those who are following the blogging through the bible plan. We will be on Spring break from April 9th until Monday, April 20th.
On Monday, April 20th we begin the Book of Leviticus one chapter a day until May 26th.
For more information on blogging through the bible and spring break, see Courtney’s blog at women living well
Be blessed 🙂
“Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.” (Matthew 28:5-7 NLT)
The phrase “Just as He said He would” was what caught my attention in those verses. Jesus had told His disciples that He would resurrect on the third day but it seemed like the disciple and women didn’t fully understand or believe Him. Hence when they went on the 3rd day, they were expecting to still see Him dead but instead they found an empty tomb because He had resurrected as He said He would. Hallelujah!!!! Jesus is aqlive and lives forever 🙂
This made me ponder how often we doubt as well. God gives us a promise but it’s like we don’t fully believe He can do what He promised because in our own eyes it looks impossible but we must always remember that with God all things are possible (Luke 1:37).
Today, be hopeful that whatever promises God has given you, He will do just as He said. He can be trusted to do what He says. He is too faithful to deny Himself (2 Timothy 2:13). He watches over His word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12). He is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19). He said His word will not return to him void until it has accomplished what it was sent to do (Isaiah 55:11)
Be encouraged, there is a dawning of a new day for you. Keep believing and trusting him knowing He is able to do what He has said he would do.
Have a blessed day 🙂
