"He Is Not Here"

He is not here
Matt 28:6, Mark 16:6, Luke 24:6

It is important to realize that there are some places that you won’t find God. I know God is omnipresent. He fills the universe. There is no where that He isn’t. BUT, as a child of God, if you are looking to find Jesus, if you are looking to feel Jesus, there are places that you will not find Him, there are places that you will not feel Him. You will not find Him among the tombs, you will not find Him among the dead. HE IS ALIVE!
If your relationship has grown stale, or boring, or ho-hum, God will not be hanging out in your tomb. God seeks the living. Your life with God should be exciting! Yes, you will have ups and downs, trials, tribulations, persecution, trouble and woe, but if you have Jesus, if you don’t lose faith, if you don’t lose hope, if you keep your relationship strong, even in the dark times, you and God can have an adventourous journey. Your walk with God should never be boring. Even when you can’t see Him, hear Him, or feel Him, if you know that you are living right, and have been faithful, and living in obedience, even then your resolve in the face of adversity can be uplifting and encouraging. There are places you should look for Jesus, and places you should not expect Him to be. Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not there.
