I imagine that while Jesus was in the tomb how everything of course just looked dead. Like there was no hope. At this point Jesus’ crew couldn’t do anything but sit back and let things play out. I feel like the Mary’s were just on another level. They’d already planned to go to the tomb the night before. When they got to the tomb that morning, Jesus was already gone. He’d risen.
At the end of the day you just have to sit back and allow everything to play out. You know the promise. There’s nothing else to do when you’ve done your part. Where your task ends, God’s begins. He does what you can’t and you have to trust Him to do what He is able to do.
Before they could get to the tomb, Jesus was already gone. They’d planned to take the perfumes the night before and when they woke up the next morning He’d already risen just as promised. They woke up to a promise. They woke up to a blessing. They woke up to a miracle.
It’s important for us to know in our waiting that God is moving even while we are sleeping. I encourage you to go ahead and go to sleep every night with no worries. Go to sleep without any stress in your mind and heart because God is moving on your behalf. Trust God to move. You are His child and He cares about you. He is constantly working for you. Get your rest and let God do His job. Just as the women here in this story, you’re going to wake up to an answered prayer. You’re going to wake up to a promise. You’re going to wake up to a blessing.
If you want to take a look at the story, here's the verse you want to start at:
When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome purchased [sweet-smelling] spices, so that they might go and anoint Him. Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.
Mark 16:1-2 AMP
