God: can do it again…
John 12:1-2 (KJV) “Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him”.
In our ordinary conversations today we don’t hear words like this: “oh yeah, he was the one who died and came back to live and now is having lunch at that table”. But we are believers of Christ and He did promise us before He left that “greater things we will do”: I still await.
No matter the latitude or longitude, once Jesus said it I choose to believe it; so the promise is yet to be manifested in its latitude in my dispensation. Jesus raised more than one individual from the dead and if I am going by God’s calculation, the expectation for us doing the same is stupendous: I still await the day.
The man who had been dead not only arose, but was evident in the congregation eating and enjoying a meal with others in public. This is beyond marvelous.
My Prayer: Jesus even as you did and even as you said, let it be so today; let me experience your words in their fullness for healing and deliverance and restoration of the human soul and body. Let your phrase to “occupy until you come” be done in triumph over the dark forces in this life. In your precious name Jesus.
