Early Sunday morning, the disciples of Jesus raced to His tomb hoping to finish the job of embalming His body. What they found was something totally unexpected. An angel of God came down from heaven in full view of everyone including the guards, with all the bells and whistles. An earth quake provided the soundtrack as the angel rolled the stone away from the grave and sat on it. Everyone peeked into the grave and was startled by what they saw. Nothing!! This was the greatest nothing ever seen. Jesus was not in the grave but risen.
The challenges, obstacles and nothings in your life are a revelation of the eternal truth you are about to experience. God has not abandoned you but is working behind the scenes even through the nothing you may be facing to bring you into a glorious destiny. You may not fully comprehend it yet, but the nothings in your life are giving God the space to display His goodness in you.
SCRIPTURE READING: Matthew 28:1-10 Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
