Week 12 Devo – TUESDAY

Out of the Grave

One would think the disciples would be the most likely to be waiting eagerly on the third day outside the tomb for Jesus’ body to gain life back into its limbs, but instead they were discouraged.

They heard the reports of the empty tomb, but still hadn’t put all the pieces together. Isn’t this like our lives at times? Sometimes we know the truth, but it’s far harder to live it out than simply to know. Sometimes we don’t understand why an event occurs or we don’t feel God’s presence, and we immediately turn to question God. We forget that He wants us to know Him and to trust Him. He has given us His Word and displayed His character through the Word made flesh, and He asks that we believe Him.

When do you find it most difficult to trust God?
