See Him Move the Stone

Mark 16:4

After the trial and brutal crucifixion of Jesus, the women in the inner circle were headed to where the body was laid. Their eyes must have been red from weeping while a sense of disappointment hung over them. With loving sentiments, they sought to anoint the dead body, yet the practicality of moving the heavy stone that sealed the tomb was an “impossibility” that loomed large before them.

“When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.” (Mark 16:4)

Like them, have you dreaded “impossibilities” in your life? These are just wonderful opportunities for God to graciously remove those obstacles in answer to your prayers. Like Mary, at times we don’t even recognize the hand that moved the stone! So let us press on in His name and for His glory, undaunted by possible future obstacles, eager to see Him move the stone as we invest time in prayer.

Let your heart be cheered with the fact that if the Lord does not remove a hindrance in your path, He will surely help you find a way around it. Let us pray for a new vision of the majesty and glory of the Lord Jesus and then nothing will be impossible.

“…all things are possible with God.” Mark 10:27

Today, let us go forward with the absolute assurance that because Christ lives, we can also live in the victory of our risen Lord. Therefore, regardless of the trials you may face, rejoice in the certainty that God is more than able to move that stone in your life.
