I hope you had a beautiful weekend remembering what Jesus did for YOU…and celebrating that HE is ALIVE!!
We’ve remembered how the impossible was made possible by OUR GREAT GOD!!!
BUT, Monday is here and before we roll out of bed the impossible begins to look impossible all over again. Before we’ve rolled out of bed we begin to look at the big stones in our path and wonder how WE are going to roll them out of the way instead of asking HIM to roll them out of the way.
We believe that our God was powerful enough to roll the impossible stone away for Jesus to walk out of the grave, but have trouble believing that He will roll stones away for us.
Why do we do that?
We forget that He is the LORD and He does not change (Malachi 3:6).
That means…if He could roll impossible stones then, He can roll impossible stones now.
We forget that Jesus said,
“What is impossible with man is possible with God.” (Luke 18:27)
So quickly we forget that the Stone Roller hasn’t stopped rolling stones. BIG, HEAVY STONES.
Monday and everything else looks big and impossible and we lose focus on the fact that OUR GOD IS IN THE BUSINESS OF MOVING STONES.
We look at the obstacle instead of the Obstacle Mover.
- What is the Big Heavy Stone in your path today? What “stone” is preventing your LIFE from bursting forth today??
- Will you look today to the One who rolled the stone from the grave of our Savior and defeated death…instead of staring at the impossible stone?
Father, YOU are the Stone Roller, the LIFE giver. So quickly we forget that the things that look impossible to us ARE impossible to us without You…but with You they are possible!! You roll away stones of fear, addiction, brokenness and shame. Forgive us for forgetting something we even learned just yesterday…forgive us for looking at the Big Stones instead of looking at You and trusting that with You, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.
“Let the Word of Christ richly dwell within you…”
