Father, thank you for hearing me

A man had died for days. Despite informing Jesus of the death, he did not go straightaway. When he eventually got there, people were already crying and lost hope because the dead had been in the morgue for 4days.

When he got there , he did not pray long prayers. All he said was “Father I thank you for hearing me”. He then gave a command for Lazarus to come out. Lazarus came out.

What is the Lazarus in your life, that situation that ‘stinketh’ and looks like a done deal .  You have learned to live with it even though you wish it could change.

Today the master says “Come out” of it. As you believe and confess your life is seeing a change and transformation.

Even the Son of God had to be grateful and acknowledge Him for the situation to change.  He says in his word that we can do more than he did.  I believe it and it shall be done unto me.

Rejoice in Adversity

My last post discussed briefly the reason for thanking God in the face of problems.

There is a seed of equivalent benefit in every Adversity. When unpleasant things happen, we receive it with joy expecting that it’s happened for a reason and that something of great benefit can come out of the negative situation.

By acknowledging the situation and being grateful for the opportunity to pass through,  the grace to see the reason for the circumstance would be revealed in due course.

We are on a journey in life and not even the bible promised that all will be rosy. It did promise that as we have received the Son, the grace to sail through is given to us.
