Scripture:   John (NIV) 20:6  Then Simon Peter came along behind him and went straight into the tomb.  He saw the strips of linen laying there,

7 as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus head.  The cloth was still lying in its place, separate from the linen.

8  Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside.  He saw and believed. 

9  (They did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.)

Observation:      After all that Jesus had said about rising from the dead, they still did not understand.  This it is so much with prophecy.  It is not clearly understood until after it has been fulfilled, and even then not until the Holy Spirit reveals it to the heart.   They needed to understand "from the scriptures."  When Jesus spoke to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, He spoke from the scriptures.  The Living Risen Word was opening their understanding of the written word.

Application:   More than relying on my own interpretation of things around me, I need to see what the scriptures have to say.  Since I believe that the scriptures are the Word of God, it naturally follows that I accept them as a higher authority than my own opinion.  I can trust what God has written even before it takes place.  I do not need to worry about the outcome.  I can gain understanding from the scriptures that God is with me and will bring me through. 

Prayer:   Lord, thank you for the Bible, the written Word of God.  Thank you for providing me something I can trust wholeheartedly.  Amen
