Matthew 28 [NET]
1 Now after the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. 2 Suddenly there was a severe earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descending from heaven came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4 The guards were shaken and became like dead men because they were so afraid of him. 5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here, for he has been raised, just as he said. Come and see the place where he was lying. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead. He is going ahead of you into Galilee. You will see him there.’ Listen, I have told you!” 8 So they left the tomb quickly, with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 But Jesus met them, saying, “Greetings!” They came to him, held on to his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee. They will see me there.”
I've found myself in a little situation where I'm supposed to send my future landlady money for my rent but at the same time stalling a little bit and not pushing that hard to get my bank stuff sorted out because I'm nervous paying this rent having not yet done my relocation sorted. I'm trusting God to give me favor and I've prepared as well as I can and asking Him to show me how I haven't and what improvements I can make before my interview next month. However the fact is this rent invoice is looming over my head and I want with all my heart to take this great apartment.
Last night I emailed my future roomie and told her my fears and as I wrote I kept seeing the irony of saying I trust God, God loves you, He'll provide for us, yet being worried about this.
I was reading Holly Furtick's blog and she talked about how in this passage, Jesus met the women after they obeyed.
In the same way, God's given me some instructions with what He wants me to do with my life. I have to obey and be where He wants me to be, So He can meet me in that place of obedience. My roomie wrote back and encouraged me to follow what God's placed in my heart, so I write to my landlady and explained the situation and I thank God for me and my roomie having favor with her. I am so peaceful about doing this and committing to walking in the future and the path He has set me on, knowing I will meet Him as I walk.
God Meets Us in that Place Of Obedience.
