Re: Verse reading–Mark 15:33-41; 16:1-8 (day seven)
“But go, tell the disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.”–16:7.
It is a pattern with God. A struggle for me. “Walk now, see later” whispers the Spirit. Obedience before confirmation. Feet first. Eyes second.
I am learning this lesson again. Like the disciples, I find myself on the threshold of a new chapter. Exciting. Unfamiliar. What I think I need is to see the Lord. To hear His assurance. What I actually need is to get forward to the place that He is telling me to go. When I get there, He will meet me. He promises!
“Certainly I will be with you, and this shall be the sign that I have sent you; when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall worship God on this mountain.”–Exodus 3:12
Go and then you will know! I value assurance. He values obedience.
