Roman soldiers guard the tomb.
The disciples are in hiding thinking, "Are we next?"
The family is mourning.
Jesus enemies are rejoicing.
It doesn't look good, does it?
Psalm 30:11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
There are times in our life when we ask God, "Why am I going through this?" Satan would tempt us with the idea that we've done something to incur God's wrath or at the very least not deserve His divine protection. We mourn our loss.
But Sunday's a comin'.
God is with you. He has never left you. He knows what you are going through just as He understood what the disciples and followers of Jesus were going through. You may mourn for a while, but Jesus will come again!
PRAY: Dear Jesus, please turn my mourning into dancing. AMEN
