‘So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”’ Matthew 28.8-10
It is so reassuring that Jesus seemed to know the fears and feelings of those he encountered. He also knew exactly where they were heading and so his words took on a new authority. He was not giving them a casual message to pass on at some point in the future, but knowing where they were headed he gave them some words relevant for that occasion.
This is the Jesus who stands with us today. He really does know the plans you have for the hours that lies ahead. If you pray and feel he is speaking to you, either through the Bible or by some other means, it is because he knows what is going to happen and the situations in which you will find yourself. He also knows how you are feeling, and he communicates as he does because he really does know everything about you.
This is the wonder of Jesus, the one who delights to stand with you and give you what you need for the day. Spend a little time committing your day to him and recognise that he already knows all the details and wants to walk through it with you.
