Luke 24:36-40“As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, ‘Peace to you!’ But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. And he said to them, ‘Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.’ And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet.”
What are those things bringing chaos or doubt into your life? The ultimate doubt and chaos for Jesus’ disciples was “what’s next”. How many times have we tried to “give it up”, “let it go” or “get over it” one for time? What’s next?
Jesus tells is disciples not to be troubled and not to doubt. He simply showed himself and said “touch me”.
Today is an opportunity to reach out and experience His grace, mercy, love and care. Doubt? Reach out.
In today’s culture, many people have the opinion that we should live by our own standards, oblivious to the Word of God. Some want the blessings of the promises of God, without having a faith of Him or faith in Him. However, to truly be happy and fulfilled, we should examine ourselves in the light of God’s Word and live by it.
Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Faith is your spiritual night vision. It cuts through the darkness and shows you the way. It sheds light when darkness is overwhelming.
The stress and tensions of life become unbearable when we don’t have faith in God and His Word. Faith in God and His Word relieves the stress today’s culture imposes.
Faith is empowering; Faith in action brings victory!
