Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Overjoyed would be an understatement! After having every dream shattered, Jesus' apostles now share the unspeakable joy of seeing what was impossible and experiencing what was unthinkable. The power available to them is now unlimited, and their future is without boundaries. Jesus, their Teacher, is Lord of all, and their future is in his hands.

My Prayer...

I praise you, O mighty God, for raising Jesus from the dead and for the assurance that I will one day be with you and with all those who love you and anticipate your return. Thank you for doing what humanly was not possible and giving me faith in what is unimaginable. Please use this power to conform my character to your will and the example of Christ. In Christ Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
