Wherever we face trouble or a great problem God steps in and meets that with His great power. The disciples found a great stone lay over the grave, but God sent a great earthquake to shift it. The result was the disciples had great joy in their hearts!
“and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a great stone against the door of the tomb, and departed” “And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it” “So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word (Mat 27:60, 28:8).
God brings us through situations that seem closed and blocked by great stones; they seem impossible difficult or burdensome but when Jesus rises up and the stone is moved by His great power we see that Jesus is not dead and we experience great joy.
Once When Jesus was in a boat there is a great storm but after they woke Him up, He rebukes the wind and there was a great calm. “And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat so that it was already filling. Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm and they feared greatly and said to one another what manner of man is this that even the sea and the wind obey him ( Mark 4:37-41).
What is placed into heart of the disciples? Great fear or great awe of God.
Friend, God means the great storms in our life, to eventually become a great calm, not so we carry on to the other side unchanged unaffected, but that’s something of God’s greatness is deposited in our heart and spirit’s.
