“Then Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God.”
Mary and Martha thought Yeshua would heal their brother but He never got to them in time. Lazarus
died and by the time He got there Lazarus had been dead for four days.
How hard that must have been for the sisters. They had put their hope in the Lord but He never
showed up in time. Lazarus had died end of story. Yeshua would have to pay his condolences
when He came but that’s not what happened. When He arrived, He challenged them in their faith.
The story was far from over.
“Then Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?
The glory of God Yeshua was speaking about was answer to prayer, breakthrough, Lazarus being
raised from the dead.
But the sisters needed to keep believing if they were to see the glory of God!
That spoke to me this week. If I am to see the glory of God in my life I need to keep believing.
What does the manifestation of God’s glory look like in your life today?
Is it healing, restored relationships, breakthrough of finances……
The sisters had put their faith in God. It was hard seeing their brother’s health fade away.
Where was the Lord? Had He forgotten about them? Did He love them as much as they thought?
(the bible tells us they had a close relationship)
But in a moment of time it seemed like their faith in God was misplaced. “He couldn’t even come on
But the Lord as we know had not forgotten. He loved this family and would do something amazing
He would bring Lazarus back from the dead and that is why He challenged them to keep believing.
We need to keep believing friends. As you put your hope in God you WILL see the glory of God
manifest in your life. That’s the message today.
The glory of God will be manifested in your life so keep believing. The Lord is faithful and won’t
back down on His promises. Even when it’s difficult believe and see His glory!
Bless you friends
Awesome post…We just have to keep believing that God will do the things He says He will do, then have patience and wait to see His glory.
That’s right. We need to keep believing that God is faithful and will hear our prayers.
“What does the manifestation of God’s glory look like in your life today?” What a great question as it is affirming how God is working in our life and we speak out what He’s doing with no doubt!
He is constantly working and like you said, we must believe and not let doubt get in the way. His desire is to let His glory be clearly seen in our lives. The challenge we have is to believe what we prayed for and what we believed is done! God is good!
