Sometimes my trust (or hope or vision or expectation) collapses or dies.
However, I don’t think I’ve ever experienced it to this extent:
“But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done” (Luke 24:21).
Trusted — past tense. Because they trusted no more. Because Jesus had been killed. And everyone knows that dead men can’t be trusted for anything.
But He was dead no more!
He was back after three days…just as He had told them ahead of time.
I’m glad again this morning for the privilege of putting my trust in Jesus, He who is alive forever more.
Even when my other hopes and visions and trusts and expectations collapse and die, my trust in Him is sure.
(And I’m so grateful to have Him near and with me when those other things collapse and die.)
