John 11:17 Now when Jesus came, He found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days.
What are you facing today? Mary, Martha and Lazarus were facing Lazarus’ death! Maybe you are facing illness, financial problems, marriage problems, addictions that just seem to defeat you, whatever it is keep this thought in mind; if God, our God can raise Lazarus from the dead He certainly can handle anything you are facing today! Trust me, I am not making light of what you are facing I am just trying to help you see that your God can handle it!
Mary and Martha were so distraught because they knew that if Jesus would just show up He could heal Lazarus, do you think they thought maybe He didn’t care while they were waiting or that He was too busy or maybe they thought He had more important things to do and all hope was lost because Lazarus died! The Bible tells us that God cares so much He keeps track of each and every one of our tears. He hasn’t forgotten where you are and what you are facing, He may just be waiting for the perfect timing so that His glory will shine all over your situation!
Jesus loved Lazarus and He loves you! He truly wants what is best for you and absolutely nothing is impossible for Him. What is it that you need His focus on? Take it to Him and believe just as Martha did in these verses: John 11:21-22 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.”
Don’t give up now. Don’t let go of that dream, don’t give up on that marriage or that child, unless God tells you that you will not be healed believe Him for healing in your situation! It’s time to pray and ask God to give you the faith you lack to give you back all that you have lost and to restore your joy and your life! Remember; if Jesus could raise Lazarus from the dead, your situation is a piece of cake, He’s got this!
I encourage you today to hang onto the Hope that only comes from God and know that He loves you and will walk you through this! Trust in His power to resurrect you in your finances, marriage, to bring your child back to Him, to give you a child, give you victory over that addiction or whatever it is, trust that He will do what is always right and best for you!
