Saturday. The time in between. Jesus was crucified. The disciples were confused. Hearts were broken. What would happen next?
Oftentimes, we are stuck in a season of Saturdays. Waiting for what will happen next. A season of stillness, but unrest. A season of quietness, but confusion. Looking to heaven and begging for God to move in our lives.
It is in these times when we have to cling to what the disciples almost failed to cling to. HOPE. The promise of Jesus that says, “My plans will be fulfilled. I will not leave you alone.” He told them he would rise on the third day, and, yet, on Saturday, they doubted.
In the middle of your Saturday season, waiting for what will come next, don’t lose hope in the promises of Jesus. Don’t lose heart in what he done and what he will do. Don’t forget what he has said.
All His plans are perfect. Psalm 18:30-31
He will never leave you. Deuteronomy 31:6
He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
He will work all things for your good. Romans 8:28
He will meet all your needs. Psalms 23:1
He will finish what he started. Philippians 1:6
He will fulfill his purpose for you. Psalm 138:8
He is directing your steps. Psalm 37:23
His timing is perfect. Ecclesiastes 3:11
It may be hard right now. It may seem like God is busy, and you are forgotten. It may seem as if nothing is happening, but God is working behind the scenes for you and in you. And when the time is right, He will reveal to you what His plans look like. Instead of looking backward, and making this a season of sadness and confusion and unrest, look unto Jesus. Look at his beautiful face and make this a season of peace and trust in all God has promised to do. Make Saturday a season of hope, and you will find that all He said will come to pass, and this season was one of the best times in your life because you didn’t lose hope.
