Here are some thoughts I had one morning while I was in Asia:
When you feel the profound emptiness of being alone, it is a choice to believe the emptiness or live from True Reality.
This morning I found it a great struggle to believe the nearness of God, then I read Romans 10:8, “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.”
Therefore, the choice is to either believe that I am truly empty and alone or I can live prophetically in the truth that I am not.
When you resign your self to emptiness, the profession is that deficiency is more powerful than fullness. Instead, the feelings of emptiness should be a call to find Life! After all, when the women went to the tomb and it was empty, they did not stop. It was a sign!
“He’s not there! He’s not there!” This was not a time for them to rest in the thoughts that surely came, “He must have been stolen! Those worthless guards didn’t even protect Him!”
Now we know that He was pointing them to resurrection reality, not calling them to wallow in the empty tomb. In the same way, we must never be content with emptiness.
The emptiness of the tomb is to point us toward True Fullness.
