God took the darkest day of history, Good Friday, and gave us Resurrection Day. Are you facing a "Good Friday" in your life? God can take it and make a "Resurrection Day" for you. God can use anything for His glory and our good. If you feel hopelessness, with God there is hope. Judas Iscariot missed the whole point. Feeling overwhelmed by his guilt, he hung himself. (Matthew 27:4-6) Had he understood the point of the Cross, he could have received Christ's forgiveness, and what a testimony he would have had! God would have used him powerfully.
Sometimes what seems tragic at the time turns out to be a proverbial "blessing in disguise." I know of Christians who now say they are grateful for health or financial problems, which brought them closer to God. I am not minimizing at all, the deep pain that is felt, but God has used cancer to draw families closer. He has used tornadoes to draw people back to Him. He has used church burnings to bring different races together to build back the churches. If you are facing a painful or seemingly hopeless situation, ask God to take it and use it for your good and His glory. You can be thankful one day for even the most painful situations.
On the eve of His death, Jesus offered these encouraging words: "There is more than enough room in my Father's home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am." John 14:2-3 NLT

YOU CAN RECEIVE CHRIST RIGHT NOW BY FAITH THROUGH PRAYER
Prayer of Salvation: Dear Lord, I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that do not please you. I have lived my life for myself. I am sorry and I repent. I ask you to forgive me. I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now, ask you to take control of my life, and I give it to you. Help me to live every day in a way that pleases you. I love you, Lord, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
