Today I’ve been thinking about those who walked with Jesus and how they must have been feeling today…I always feel great because I’m on this side of the story and I can see the whole picture of why He did what He did for us… they didn’t get it yet.
I’ve heard that people have to hear things 7-13 times on average before they get it…I just counted how many different times Jesus told them in John alone after chapter 11 and it was 7+ times!!!
I often joke about having to explain things sometimes in several different ways in order for people to understand and yet Jesus is the King of Kings and even those who walked with Him didn’t understand the words that were coming out of his mouth until later!
During this time He had not yet sent them the Holy Spirit… how completely confused they must have been. Here I am trying to compare how Jesus is with us in the Waiting but they were dealing with a situation where they had not yet seen His glory and did not have the Holy Spirit to comfort them or give them hope…
We have hope, we have peace… we know the ending of the greatest miracle, the red thread, WHO will win in the end and yet so many of us can’t see the clues, the explanations, the science, the miracles that represent what tomorrow’s resurrection represents… the little details of Folding his grave clothes that show us He is coming back!
My prayer is that if you’re reading this, if you’ve lost hope or of you’re in a season of waiting right now and you don’t know what or when the outcome will be, all you have to do is cry out to Jesus:
Romans 10:9 explains it best by saying: “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”
He’s waiting for you, let Him help you through your own season of waiting and trust in the greatest love story ever told!
Happy Easter Friends…He is Risen!!!
