Your Miracle Tomb

25 Sep

Your Miracle Tomb…

It wasn’t just an empty tomb. It was a specific empty tomb. It was somebody’s empty tomb. It belonged to someone – Joseph of Arimathea. It was borrowed. It was loaned.

God came to earth with no provision to purchase a tomb so a tomb could be given him. So that, in this sense, the resurrection could be a joint venture.

It was true for Joseph and it’s true for you. The resurrection won’t happen in your life unless you take part in it, unless you choose it. The resurrection is not just an event that you read about; it’s something that you participate in.

God wants your tomb. In Hebrew, tomb means “a hollow place, a void.” Your tomb is the empty place or places of your life. Your empty places include your sins, sorrows, your wounds, valleys, your despairs, your hopeless dreams.

Give it to Him and it will be changed. He only wants to borrow it. And He won’t return it in the same condition. No. Instead, it will become a place of miracles – because the miracles begin when it stops being just the empty tomb and becomes your empty tomb.

And they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection. Luke 20:36

Take any part of your life or past that has been empty or dark, sorrowful or wounded, and invite the Lord into it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
