[The Glory Unveiled]
3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. ( Mark 16:3-4 )
Often, the very things we worry about, the things that actually burden us are illusions in reality. They do not actually exist. They exist only in the ignorance of our minds. Sometimes, fear paints the most convincing picture of our doubts and worries but the truth is, we hold the painting brush in our hands. If only we would look up, we will discover from the word of God that whatever we fear is not real. Fear thrives on ignorance and as long as we are ignorant, we are captives of fear and worry. The scripture above speaks about two women, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joseph. They were worried about how they were going to roll away a large stone. They were figuratively worried about a problem [burden] they thought they could not possibly handle. Until they looked up, they never imagined the possibility of a breakthrough. They thought the problem they feared was unsurmountable. All we need to do to get our problems away is just to look up [to Christ]. Our problems persist because we fail to look up to Christ, the author and finisher (Hebrews 12:2). Our own strength will fail us. Let us depend on Christ.
Prayer_Bead: Lord Jesus, thank you for rolling away all my fears and doubts. Thank you for opening my eyes to your provisions for me.
