March 09, 2019: SOAP #3383: Deuteronomy 10-12; Mark 16

Scripture:  Mark (NIV) 15:1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus' body. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.

Observation:  They were on a mission.  They knew they had a problem.  They did not know what they could do.  But they continued their mission.   Theywere determined.  They were not ones tostay at home because of they did not know how to move a tombstone! 

Application:  I wonder how many times I have let a potentialproblem keep me from stepping out to do what God has given me to do.  Satan likes to keep my mind so focused on the'big stone' that I do not leave home.  Ineed to walk ahead knowing that the 'Stone-mover' will be there even before Iarrive! 

Prayer:  Holy Spirit, may I never let a picture in myhead of a big stone keep me from setting out to do what you have given me to do! Today, I will move ahead trusting you tomove any 'stone.'  And when I arrive, Iwill find that you have already been there!  Amen
