Do Not Doubt Jesus
“Then Jesus said to them, do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
Sometimes when I begin to have doubt that Jesus will not be around to hear my prayers, I can think about the scripture above where Jesus had just rose from the grave and was telling Mary, the mother of James and Joseph and Mary Magdalene to go and tell the disciples that He had risen. They came to visit the tomb and did not expect to see Jesus alive, but they discovered an angel at the tomb, who rolled the stone away. Their hope was gone, but when seeing the stone rolled away and heard Jesus speaking to them their hope was restored. This scripture should remind us that Jesus is and will always be there for us, as He is once again back on His throne. It tells us that He has risen from the grave to save us from our sins, and that He is now alive and waiting for us to come and follow Him. When we think that our prayers cannot be answered the scripture should remind us that Jesus is alive again, and that He could also send His angel to roll away our stones and take care of our problems. We should learn as the two Mary’s did to not give up as Jesus can send His angel to take away our financial burdens, relationship issues, family problems, our health problems or any other problem we may be having. For all you know right at this moment He may be telling the angel to move the stone. The check may be in the mail. The apology may be in the making. The job contract may be on the desk. The health issue may be healed. We need to remember that we must not quit, for if we do, we may miss the answer to our prayers. God still sends angels. And God still moves stones. Matthew 28:2 “There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone.”
