DEVO 04.04.24

DEVO. 04.04.24

“Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.”

(LUKE 24: 31)

- The same day that Jesus was resurrected from the dead, two of His followers were walking to a village called Emmaus.

- It was a seven mile walk.

- Plenty of time to talk and discuss everything.

- They were talking about everything that had happened to Jesus and how He was crucified.

- It goes on to say in verse 15 that, “As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them”

- ”As they talked”, Jesus, the risen Savior, literally joined them on their journey!

- But verse 16 says in the NKJV, “But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.”

- He was with them but their eyes were restrained…They couldn’t see Him.

- Something kept them from seeing Him.

- Could it be that they were so caught up in the shock of the crucifixion and their problems that their eyes couldn’t see The Savior, who was walking with them?

- I wonder how often we can be consumed with our problems, circumstances and stresses of life that we miss our divine moments that are right in front of us.

- Here’s an honest question, Have you been consumed with your problems or Your Provider?

- Overwhelmed with your hurts or Your Healer?

- Weighed down with Stress or Uplifted by your Savior?

- Could you be so focused on the negative that you are incapable of seeing the positive?

- You’ve got to be careful with what you fix your eyes on.

- In Hebrews 12: 2, it says, “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

- Why do we need to FIX our eyes on Him?

- Because, if we give our attention to all of the distractions and our troubles, it will distort our vision.

- It will keep us from seeing Jesus, even when He is right there with us!

- What you dwell on, shapes you.

- In verse 30 & 31, it says, “When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.”

- He was right there and they missed Him.

- Don’t become so consumed with all of the bad that you miss your divine moments.

- Jesus may be trying to teach you something, right in the middle of this mess.

- Don’t miss your moment!

- “Raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21:28)

- Have a great Thursday!
