Has it ever happened to you that what seemed like the wrong way to solve a problem actually turned out to be the right way? Have you ever doubted God’s love only to find that He was with you closer than you could ever imagine? Did you ever have a day of disaster turn into “the day the Lord has made” and a day to “rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24)? We need to look no further than the span from Good Friday to Easter Sunday to understand that.
We have all heard it said that there’s no Easter Sunday without Good Friday. There is no Resurrection without the Cross. We have to go through things to come out on the other side. It was Jesus’ trust in the Father that caused him to give everything he had. Without fully knowing how things would turn out, Jesus embraced his future to the Father’s Will. What seemed like a loss was the greatest victory ever!
We should not be surprised. From the very beginning, God made something out of nothing. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the waters” (Genesis1: 1-2). God has been working wonders and continues to do so. God specializes in doing the impossible.
And so, trust God even though things don’t make complete sense to you at the moment. Seek God sincerely in prayer. Keep hoping, keep believing, and keep persisting. After all, our God is a God who makes something out of nothing!
