Then they remembered his words. Luke 24:8
The day Jesus raised from dead, very early in the morning, the women went to the tomb. But they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two angels appeared and told, He[Jesus] is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you; on the third day be raised again. Then they remembered his words.
They came very sad, and when they did not find Jesus, they did not realize that Jesus had risen. When they remembered the promise of Jesus, they ran back and testified to disciples the good news, their fear changed to faith when they remembered the word that Jesus spoke.
They [Disciples] did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense Luke 24:11. When we are overwhelmed with sorrow or fear, word of God might not look logical. So lets us change our focus to the promises of God and stop dwelling in fear and sorrow.
Prayer: Father Lord, forgive us in not remembering your great promises. Lord, help us to mediate on the word of God and not on our fears. Amen.
