We have been watching #LIGHTtheWORLD videos each morning followed by a bible video. Emily’s absolute favorite video is Lazarus being raised from the dead. My first impressions were on how Jesus knew how to meet each individual’s needs. With Martha he listened to her testimony and taught her a little more about the resurrection. With Mary he wept. For the crowd he prayed aloud and taught them of his relationship with God.
Today I was struck with Martha’s testimony. She knew that Jesus could have healed her brother. She knew that whatever Jesus asked that God would give him. She knew that her brother would live again in the resurrection of the last day. She believed that Jesus Christ was the son of God. She believed that some day all would be well again. (Luke 11:20-27).
She had no idea that in a short period of time she would be with her brother again. Her pain and troubles would be healed that very day.
I’ve been wondering what areas of my life could be healed this very day too. What things do I assume can’t be fixed until the resurrection of the last day that Christ is willing to help with? What constraints have I placed on his power? Like Mary and Martha once did, do I assume that Christ’s opportunity to help me is four days past?
“Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” (Luke 11:40).
