April 16

Imagine, going to the tomb and finding two angels sitting where the body of Jesus was supposed to be! They were so frightened that they bowed in fear. What I'm surprised by is, when Jesus would appear to some, and they didn't recognize Him. But really, is that so far fetched? We have the accounts of many throughout the scriptures, yet, we don't recognize Him either! But look at Mary's heart, she was willing to move Jesus' corpse if she knew where they had put Him. Maybe He showed Himself to her after she made a commitment. It was a commitment to do more than she could probably handle. He called her name and then she recognized Him! Are you waiting to hear from Jesus? Maybe you will hear His voice after you commit yourself to Him! He will show you that He is not a dead body that you need to move, but is alive and calling your name! He is risen!

Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away." Jesus said to her, "Mary." She turned and said to him in Aramaic, "Rabboni!" (which means Teacher). John 20:15-16

Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established. Proverbs 16:3
