Martha then said to Jesus, Master, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. And even now I know that whatever You ask from God, He will grant it to You. Jesus said to her, Your brother shall rise again. Martha replied, I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live; And whoever continues to live and believes in (has faith in, cleaves to, and relies on) Me shall never [actually] die at all. Do you believe this? She said to Him, Yes, Lord, I have believed [I do believe] that You are the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), the Son of God, [even He] Who was to come into the world. [It is for Your coming that the world has waited.]” John 11:21-27 AMPC
We serve a now God. We sometimes have limited God in our lives by always relegating things that He wants to do in our lives now for the future. We say God will do it sometimes,someday or maybe Martha postponed Lazarus resurrection for the future not knowing the resurrection and the life giver is standing infront of her.
NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”
Hebrews 11:1 AMPC
Faith is a fact but faith is an act and faith is not something for the future but faith is now. God always wants us to trust in Him now not someday or sometime. When we postpone our miracle to the future that means we are not really convinced that what we are asking God He will do it. God expects us to position ourselves for the now miracles by conditioning our spirit,mind and body into the state of expectancy. Expectation is the breathing ground for miracles.
Jesus said to Martha” I am the resurrection and the life……”. The resurrection and the life is in and with us by His Spirit. And He wants to give to us a now miracle. Trust now and rely on Him to bring to life in your life that which is dead.
And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.”
Romans 8:11 AMPC
Today may God’s goodness go before you and cause the impossibility in your life to be possible in Jesus name.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father thank You for Your Word. I prophesy resurrection and life by Your Spirit against every opposition, impossibility in my life in Jesus name. Amen.
