MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️: I’m still thinking about yesterday and I’m still in Mark 16: The Resurrection of Jesus.
Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of Jacob, and Salome (mother of James and John) made their way to the tomb. It was VERY EARLY in the morning. When they arrived…they discovered that the VERY LARGE stone had been rolled away (they’d been wondering how in the heck they were going to move that large stone).
HE. WAS. NOT. THERE.
He’d GONE AHEAD OF THEM.
You see, when we go looking in dark tombs where things are supposed to be dead…we will not find Jesus. All those dead things have been thrown into the sea of forgetfulness. But we keep going back. Pushing on large stones to uncover and dredge up our past. It’s futile. Pointless. HE HAS GONE AHEAD OF US. HE’S NOT THERE. Nor should we be.
Let’s leave all that where it belongs…and get on the road to Galilee…where he’s already headed.
“He has gone ahead of you into Galilee, and you will see him there, just like he told you.”
Note: I looked up the word Galilee. In our dictionary…it means front porch. I LOVE this imagery! Let’s stop running into empty tombs and exerting our efforts trying to uncover the past…today, let’s head to the FRONT PORCH where he’s already sitting, waiting for us, to have a cool drink and while away the hours simply BEING STILL.
Oh my goodness. This is so powerful. Many times the enemy will bring up my past debacles and I just tell him. You are so stupid devil my past is gone. Every part of me including my mind is being renewed day by day, so today my spiritman is sealed, my mind, will & emotions are free in Christ Jesus and my past is just what it is. It is dead. Hallelujah!!!
This is a struggle for me and an area He is working on with me. It's hard for a sentimental heart to let the past go. He's being patient with me though, He created me that way.
