How many times in our lives does this happen to us? And just as we are about to give up, Jesus steps in and does something wonderful. Here, he appears to two men who need desperately to see him, and he explains how the scriptures had been fulfilled. A few minutes before all was dark, now all is clear. Excited, they go back to Jerusalem to tell their news.
God does this. He brings us to the place of despair and then he steps in and takes control. Reflect on how often this has happened in your own life and you shall see that the story of Emmaus is not that unusual!
