Emmanuel - God With Us!
Do you ever wonder, “Where is God?” We are living in difficult times right now wondering what will be made of all this. How long will it last? Illness seems to be overtaking the world, the loss of jobs, the lack of medical equipment, our anxiety for the future, our hungry stomachs and hungry souls…all have us wondering, “Where is God?”
During the Easter Season, It Feels Like We Are on Day Two.
On day one, Jesus is crucified. He was to rise from the grave, but with such agony, it was hard for the people to remember and believe. On day three He is risen from the dead…but what about day two? Don’t you think the world wondered what would become of all this? Is it really over? So much pain and confusion, heartache and grief.
But Then Day Three Came!
It came then, and it will always come because God is still on the throne. He is still in charge and will always be with us. We are His body on earth and it is our job to tell the world that yes, day two is frightening, but day three is coming! Jehovah Jirah will provide because He is the Beginning and the Last and all things are held together by Him.
In this season of heaviness, we must remember day three, when Jesus rose from the dead because His Word said He would. Every verse in our Bible is true and holy and we must cling to that in trying times. We must cling to His promises knowing that HE IS STILL ON THE THRONE.
Death will not overtake us.
Grief will not overtake us.
Fear will not overtake us.
God will overtake us!
He will hold us, nurture us and love us on day one, day two, day three… and for the rest of eternity. Keep the faith. Believe in His miracles. Be thankful for day two. It is there where the great anticipation has led up to the beautiful reminder:
Our King has risen and is alive and well! We can rest in that.
“So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold- though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.”
“The reward for trusting Him will be the salvation of your souls.”
1 Peter 1:6-7, 9
