Matthew 27:32 - 66
Well today I read about the death of Jesus. I really don't have much to say about this. As I have said before, it does pain me to have to read about it, but my pain is as insignificant as a fly landing on an elephant's back in comparison to what Jesus went through. I much look forward to my next reading, when Jesus is raised from the dead.
I will say this one thing that stuck out to me, though -- in Chapter 27, verses 52 and 53, it says that godly men and women were raised from the dead, left the cemetery and appeared to many people. That is the first I have heard of that and it's quite interesting to read. I was under the impression that Jesus was the only one resurrected that day. I look forward to reading other accounts of that passage.
Well, at least the next reading will be far more joyous than what I am reading today!
Psalm 34:1 - 10
"Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing." (34:10)This first part of this Psalm is all about praising and fearing the Lord. No matter how strong someone is, no matter how tough, no matter how much of a survivalist; none of that matters if you don't have the Lord on your side.
This Psalm states a few times to pray to the Lord; pray and the Lord will listen. There is mighty power in prayer, I can attest to that in my own life. The Lord is great -- you have only to trust in Him to unleash that greatness in your life.
