As we approach Resurrection Sunday and Easter, we may be experiencing some difficultly preparing for this day. It feels so different, right? All cooped up in the house, unable to go to church services and other family events. It all feels so far from normal. But, what if this day could be more meaningful because of this still pause we have in this pandemic?
What if we could be filled with expectation and hope for the good that God is going to bring from this time? What if we could be filled with expectation and hope for what God is specifically doing in our lives from this trial? What if we could believe that God’s resurrection power is here today, to work in our very own lives?
“Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, ‘The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.’ The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” Lamentations 3:21-26
This scripture states that we are not consumed because of the Lord’s great love. In fact, we have a hope because of His great compassion and faithfulness that is new every day. We wait for Him because our hope is in Him. We trust Him because we wait for Him with an expectation of something good. What have you been expecting lately from the Lord? May this Easter be one where you are filled with hope and expectation as you wait on the Lord to fulfill His promises for you. He is alive, and He is inside of you!
