Your SUDDENLY is alive! Just as the women went to Jesus’ burial site, embalming spices in hand, ready for “business as usual”, didn’t expect Him to be gone but found an empty tomb! They didn’t expect Him to be alive, even though He had told them He would be (see Matthew 16:21, Mark 9:31)! They were just going to work, like normal, natural people with a normal, natural mind-set, expecting the usual.
They expected Him – and their dreams – to be dead and buried. But God is alive, and so are His suddenlies!
“It was the day of Preparation [for the Sabbath], and the Sabbath was dawning (approaching). The women who had come with [Jesus] from Galilee followed closely and saw the tomb and how His body was laid. Then they went back and made ready spices and ointments (perfumes). On the Sabbath day they rested in accordance with the commandment,” (Luke 23:54-56).
Notice that the women “…rested in accordance with the commandment,” (Luke 23:56). They were forced to rest! They were forced to wait an entire day before they could go and anoint His body. Why? Because during those long, painful hours beginning at sundown, in the dark of night, during the Sabbath, the Lord was doing a mighty, resurrection-power work! Sometimes He forces us to enter into rest, a FORCED waiting period – so He can work in the darkness!
THERE HAD TO BE A NIGHT OF DARKNESS for dawn to appear! I am telling you now, as surely as Luke 24:1 says, “But on the first day of the week, at early dawn…” your daybreak will bring a SUDDENLY of biblical proportions! It is alive! There is always a BUT with God! In the early dawn hours, as you rise to perform yet another mundane, normal, natural day of “business as usual”, God has other plans, and they are good (see Jeremiah 29:11)!
Today is only the day of preparation! Our Supernatural God has supernatural plans for His supernatural progeny – You and Me! We don’t get to live by normal standards! We get to live supernaturally, according to His plans and purposes for our lives! We get to walk up to the tomb and find it empty! We get to go to work, just like normal, and find that God has supernaturally turned it all around – SUDDENLY! We GET to see what was once dead is SUDDENLY ALIVE!
It happens at NIGHT! IN THE DARKNESS! While we are in a forced position of rest – according to the commandment – God is working to turn it all around for our good, because we are called by His name according to His purposes (see Romans 8:28)! Go ahead and rest easy, because God is at work!
Get ready, get ready, get ready! Your daybreak is coming! Your waiting period is almost over! Once Your supernatural SUDDENLY has happened, OVERNIGHT your entire destiny will change!
I know you can hardly wait to wake up now! I am so excited for you!
Many blessings from the Living God, King of the Living Suddenly!
