Then they remembered his words. (Luke 24:8 NIV)

I was just wondering how many of you have had one of those moments whereby you were in the midst of doing your own thing, going your own way, and all of a sudden remember the words of God? You know what I mean; you were so focused on what you were doing, like carrying spices to a dead man’s grave, that you have forgotten all that he taught you for three years! Perhaps you do that even today. You have Christ in your life; you even read his word once in a while when the moment strikes you. You have even posted those pithy little spiritual magnet moments on Facebook, but there you are in the midst of your thing and you forgot his words. You forgot what he has been trying to teach you for the past how many years now? You are just looking at the dusty path in front of you, weeping over what you are experiencing, and you are carrying these heavy spices to your friend’s grave. What? Who moved the stone? Who would do such a thing? Are we at the right place? Doggone those rotten Roman soldiers, can’t they leave well enough alone! See! There’s no body! I am really mad now… oh my goodness! You know what, Dear child of the King, we can become so focused on what we think is true for our lives that we can miss what God is trying to teach us in the moment of our greatest need. The women at the empty tomb so long ago almost did the same thing. Now you may not have a shining messenger of the Lord sitting on the stone to direct you, but you do have his very words and teaching to do so. And, remember, we are promised by him that our faith is even greater than those who actually experienced and saw him when we rely on the word he has already given us! So, have you remembered his words for today? Makes one wonder…
