Showers of Blessing!

“And they said among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” Mark 16:3.

Mary Magdalene was only worried about the large stone in front of Jesus Christ tomb as they approached the tomb to anoint Jesus Christ with the spices which they had already made. But much to their amazement the large stone was rolled away. We read that the angels rolled it away for them.

In our day to day life we find such large stones in front of us blocking our path. King David always depended on the Lord when he encountered problems in his path. He knew the Lord more than anybody. Likewise, I always depend on the Lord when such obstacles trouble me. These obstacles are not at all a problem for the Lord. He is there to solve them for you and me.

We read in 2 Chronicles 20:12 how King Jehoshaphat said to the Lord, “O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.” God spoke through Jahaziel and we read it in 2 Chronicles 20:15,”Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” Verse 17 says, “You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you.”

It is always good to remember that God is in control of our lives and He watches over us all the time. He is the help of those who seek Him. We read in Psalm 121:1, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills-from whence comes my help? Here comes the answer, “My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth” Psalm 121:2. Verse 3 says, “He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep” Psalm 121:4.

Dear believer, please don’t be worried of the present circumstances which bother you. Our God is in control and He is ready to help you. You are His precious child and He loves you unconditionally. No matter however large is the stone in front of you, He is able to roll it away.

Be Blessed!
