Yesterday was a day of reflection. We took time to remember that Jesus gave the ultimate sacrifice for us, His children. He gave His life. Tomorrow we will celebrate that our Lord is not dead, but has risen. He is alive indeed.
So, where does that leave us today?
Waiting. Today is a day to wait…it’s the in-between time.
Perhaps you are literally in a waiting place today. It may be that you have gone through a trial recently. It may have been illness, loss of a job, loss of a relationship, financial loss or a host of other things.
And. Now. You. Wait.
You are waiting to see what God is going to do. You are watching to see how He will make things right. You are waiting for the “joy” that comes in the morning.
Imagine the literal fight Jesus was having the day between His death and His resurrection. He went to battle for us.
The same is happening today. He is fighting for you…His precious child. Your Easter is coming. The celebration is near.
There is so much to learn during the waiting period. It isn’t that nothing is happening. No, you may just not be able to see it.
It’s a time of faith.
Psalm 27:13-14 (KJV) I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
