SCRIPTURE READING | JOHN 11: 1-45
When Jesus arrived at Lazarus’ abode, His first conversation was with Martha. Martha rightly affirmed that whatever Jesus asks of God will be done (see vs. 22); but when Jesus promised that Lazarus will rise again, the same Martha replied that he will rise on the day of resurrection. In one moment, she affirmed her faith in Jesus; but in the next moment, her speech did not speak of someone who truly had faith in God.
Martha had knowledge of her brother’s situation, she knew he had already been in the grave for four days, she understood that someone who had been in the grave for four days should be stinking, and it affected her faith in Jesus. What she knew became the impediment to her faith. What she knew was about to stop her. The knowledge of Martha was about to disconnect her from the miracle that Jesus was about to bring.
Friend, don’t allow your knowledge to disconnect you from what God is about to do for you or around you. Don’t let what you know limit your faith; don’t allow the multitude of knowledge to stop you from believing God for anything; don’t accept that it is okay for a natural situation to remain simply because there is a physical explanation; don’t allow knowledge to stop you from believing God for the impossible and unimaginable.
Henceforth, let your faith determine your action. Dare to believe God for anything; stop looking at how difficult and complicated a situation is and believe God for a miracle that sounds like a lie; even if men do not believe that things can change in your life, still maintain a positive confession and believe God for the best.
The God we serve is an All-knowing, Almighty God. There is absolutely nothing that God cannot do. Believe God for the impossible, and He will cause the impossible to become possible.
DECLARE WITH ME
I choose to believe; my actions will be in line with my belief in God, in Jesus’ name!
