Saturday's Silence

Jesus is silent on Saturday. The women have anointed His body and placed it in Joseph’s tomb. Jesus spoke much on Friday and will set the captives free on Sunday, but on Saturday Jesus is silent. So is God. He made Himself heard on Friday. He tore the curtains of the temple, opened the graves of the dead, rocked the earth, blocked the sun of the sky, and sacrificed the Son of Heaven. Earth heard much of God on Friday, but nothing on Saturday. Jesus is silent. God is silent. Saturday is silent.


The crucifixion and resurrection command our thoughts, but we can’t ignore Saturday. The day between the struggle and the solution; the question and the answer; the offered prayer and the answer thereof.


We’ve all experienced it. It’s Saturday’s silence that often times torments us. Is God angry? Did I disappoint Him? God knows my financial struggle, my marriage is a mess. Does He hear me? Why isn’t He doing anything? What do I do in the meantime?


We trust God, choose to be patient, and wait for His promise. Jesus died with this conviction: “You will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay”. Jesus knew God would not leave Him alone in the grave, just as God will never leave you alone in your struggles. His silence is not His absence. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not coming. He is always working.


There is always a Saturday between our Friday and Sunday. An opportunity to walk by faith. To lean in to the Promise, and trust He is who He says He is and will do what He said He would do. If today is one for you, keep trusting, keep believing. It may be Saturday, but Sunday’s coming!🙌🏽♥️
