Beloved,When Jesus continued to share with His Disciples about His departure, He also was sharing about His miraculous resurrection. There are times we like them can’t see the Forrest for the trees, when the Lord shares with us the very thing that will bring us joy. Today let us pray for discernment when we are not able to understand what our conflicting messages are.
Love and Peace in Abba God,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“Jesus realized they wanted to ask him about it, so he said, “Are you asking yourselves what I meant? I said in a little while you won’t see me, but a little while after that you will see me again. I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn over what is going to happen to me, but the world will rejoice. You will grieve, but your grief will suddenly turn to wonderful joy. It will be like a woman suffering the pains of labor. When her child is born, her anguish gives way to joy because she has brought a new baby into the world. So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again; then you will rejoice, and no one can rob you of that joy. At that time you won’t need to ask me for anything. I tell you the truth, you will ask the Father directly, and he will grant your request because you use my name.”
John 16:19-23 NLT
