#5747 – No Barrier

Good morning people who are worth Jesus Christ dying for you.

The day inbetween Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday is Silent Saturday. Human minds can’t fathom the emptiness of this day to God the Father and to the Holy Spirit.

I find myself wondering what Father wants to say into this Silent Saturday.

For you, maybe it is an identification that God knows what it is like for everything to feel hopeless and lost. Jesus’ death was real. It was not symbolic or figurative. The Son of God was crucified, and now, He laid dead in a tomb. Dead was dead.

Maybe for you, Father wants to address your “Why did it have to happen this way?” With God, surely there could have been an easier way; a less costly way. Surely. Maybe this is how you feel too about areas in your life.

Maybe for others, Father wants to acknowledge your honest thought of “Does God even care?” It almost feels wrong writing this, but I believe God is big enough to hear our broken laments and cries. After all, it’s not without reason that Jesus uttered the following words:

Matthew 27:46 NIV About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).

To all those who are hurting and broken, I pray you know the unequalled love of your heavenly Father today. I pray that His presence will surpass your understanding. I pray healing will flow in Jesus’ name.

To all of us, I want to remind us that, while it is Saturday, Sunday is still coming. There are no barriers that are greater or more powerful than God’s plans! No devil or demon in hell has the final word! No sickness or pain or disease is sovereign! Silence doesn’t mean final.

May we all find our hope in God alone today in Jesus’ wonderful and life-giving name.
