The peace and power of God are revealed through me.
For those who followed Jesus and revered his teachings, life did not return to normal the day after his death. That day was the Jewish Sabbath, intended to be a day of prayer and rest. The disciples found themselves in shock and grieving, some hiding for their lives. Their world seemed hopeless.
At times I may find myself stunned by an unexpected turn of events, something I might never have imagined or desired. During these times, prayer and waiting may be all I can do—waiting for whatever comes next. Waiting for greater understanding.
In hindsight, we know the disciples’ story was about to end with a magnificent revelation. In my own life, I remember that I must wait in faith that the highest and best will be revealed.
Not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your souls.—Luke 21:18-19
