On a chilly Sunday morning, the ladies headed to Jesus’ tomb to try and finish a job they had left hanging. The embalming of Jesus’ body. They were met by a man who claimed Jesus had risen. They immediately went back to the disciples and reported what they had been told. Peter and John ran off to the tomb hoping to make sense of this situation. They ran into the tomb and were met by nothing. There was no Jesus, no angels, no guards just nothing. Nothing has ever meant so much. Nothing had ever said so much. Nothing had ever caused so much excitement. Nothing had never brought so much trouble. The tomb was empty! Suddenly everything Jesus had ever said made sense. It all came together as Peter stared at nothing!
Do you find yourself looking at a whole lot of nothing? Do you feel helpless and limited? The lack in that situation is evidence of what God is just about to do in you. All that nothing is pointing to the fact that God is working behind the scene to bless you beyond your wildest imagination.
SCRIPTURE READING: John 20:1-7 Now the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw [that] the stone had been taken away from the tomb. Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.” Peter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb. So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear Lord, You’re my Hope of living. I trust You like never before in Jesus name.
