Oftentimes we encounter situations in life where it simply looks impossible. During these times, we may even question God, wondering why did He allow unfortunate events to take place. But what we must realize, God allows trials and tribulations so that in the end He will obtain the glory.
Trials and tribulations are certain
In John 11, it speaks about a certain man named Lazarus, who was sick and afterwards died. Saddened by his death, his sisters sent a message to Jesus stating their brother was sick. But Jesus did not come immediately to their rescue.
Sometimes in life we face problems and call out to God, and we may think He is not answering. Does this mean He doesn’t hear you? No. You can expect not only is God hearing you, but also He will answer your prayers.
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer, and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
Believe in His plan
Please understand; God has a plan for each and every one of us. Also, He says in His word that all things work out for our good. And while we may not understand it today, one day we would be able to say, “God worked it out!” The key is trusting and removing fear from our hearts. There is nothing God would allow that He has not already designed for our victory.
Just as we see in John 11, Jesus was aware of Lazarus’ sickness but did not immediately come to the rescue. He had a plan this would too work out for Lazarus’ good. Had Lazarus not completely died, how could they believe that Jesus could do anything?
It will live again
Does something seem dead in your life? Do you truly believe it will live again? In our passage, Jesus commanded Lazarus to come forth and live again. After everyone thought it was over for Lazarus, when it simply seemed impossible, and after the obituary was read, God restored him through Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
God can do the same for you. But you have to simply believe and have faith. Today, declare no matter how dead things seem, God is bringing a new anointing, life, and renewing dead situations. Command your finances, relationships, health, and success to come forth!
He will do it for you!
