Day 46: In the Tomb
Today, we pause from our videos to spend time reflecting on the inherent tension of Holy Saturday.
Following Jesus’s crucifixion, His disciples experienced sorrow, doubt, fear, pain, and confusion. In many ways, even though we live on this side of Jesus’s resurrection, we’re no different.
The brokenness of this world and our inability to fully understand what God is doing in the midst of life’s trials often leave us with similar emotions- wondering when Jesus will return and set things right.
And yet, even in these moments, we cling to the joy of salvation, the hope and expectation of Christ’s return, and the promise of eternal life with God.
Today, take time to acknowledge before God any fear, doubt, pain, or confusion you may be experiencing, and then praise Him in the midst of that as you are able.
Remember my affliction and my wanderings,
the wormwood and the gall!
My soul continually remembers it
and is bowed down within me.
But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.”
The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.
It is good that one should wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.
