Re:Verse reading–Mark 15:16-20, 24-40; Mark 16:1-8 (day seven)
“When they looked up, they saw the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.”–16:4
It was an object lesson. One of many on that history-shattering morning. Silent, powerful testimony. The first thing they noticed. Their worries had been unnecessary. God had already rolled away the stone.
It spoke to them of God’s power. “You shall say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there, and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible to you.”–Matthew 17:20. Over time we realize. Our “problems” are not really the problem. What we lack is confidence in God.
The stone spoke of God’s promise and provision. Waters will part and obstacles will remove from the road that God calls us to walk.
But, sometimes the “stone” is not ON my path but IN my heart. God will make the way possible, but ONLY for those willing to walk forward in faith. The stone said so.
