Today’s Battle Drill Devotional: “He Isn’t Here” Means Our Future is Certain
He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. (Matthew 28:6)
Read Matthew 28:1-10. Do you sometimes wish you had a crystal ball? I wonder what your response would have been if just over two years ago your crystal ball had told you what we faced in 2020 and beyond?
Sometimes we wish we could see into the future. But do we, really? How many of us could face the future knowing all the difficulties and problems we would face?
But because of the resurrection of Jesus, we can see into the future. If we trust him, our future is secure. One day, like him, we will be resurrected. He has promised us that death is not the end. And his resurrection proves what he says is true. An eternal future awaits us. One day we will see him face to face. Because of Jesus’ resurrection we have hope for the future. Who doesn’t need some hope today? God will not disappoint us. What an amazing promise! How do you claim it? Simply believe in Jesus today.
