In the frigid Italian winter of 2017, the unthinkable happened for guests at a mountain hotel. An avalanche buried everyone under tons of snow, ice, and rock. The terror of those moments stretched into the hours following, when rescue efforts took on the ultimate sense of urgency.
Amazingly, working through the night, rescuers began to hear voices under the rubble. In one spot, six people were shivering in an air pocket. Among them were a mother and her young son. One of the officials that raced to the scene and helped in the rescue summed it up:
"Their faces said it all, it was like they had been reborn."
Revelation 19:16 says, “On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”
In our series “He Lives”, we’re exploring examples of people who feel buried under the rubble of life. Sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively.
Do you ever feel like life has collapsed in on you? Are you wondering where God is?
If you feel this way, remember that Jesus has been there before, experiencing the great challenges that come with being human. In one terrible moment on the cross, He even felt He had been totally abandoned by God.
But shortly after, His Father came to raise Jesus to life.
He will do the same for you, no matter your circumstances. You will feel reborn!
Lord, your provision for us amazes us, and we love you for your faithfulness! Amen.
