How can I have that kind of faith? It comes from diligently hearing and reading His Word! Hebrews 2:1”Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.”
However, even after reading the umpteen miracles that Jesus had performed, which were no bed-time stories, though, but absolutely historic, why do we refuse to have faith in Him? Faith is the victory that not only overcomes the world, but also every fear that haunts us in life. You can find hope in your darkest hour! He is 100% reliable!
When Lazarus the close friend of Jesus died in Bethany, Jesus delayed in immediately going to that place, He said: ’This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God.’ Friend, some times, we do not immediately understand the present problems that we are going through, only fast forward after many months or years, we are able to see the glory of God. Martha looked at Him teary eyed and said: “Lord, if only you had been here!” There were million other hidden questions behind those words: why did You not turn up on time? Don’t you love us? Where have you gone away while we desperately needed you? Jesus knew it all! Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles away; yet Jesus came four days after the death of Lazarus. Have you heard the phrase ‘so near yet so far?’ Yes, that was what happened; however, God had greater things planned for the family through His delay. He was using this beloved family for His glory! When Jesus said, ‘remove that stone’, Martha said, “"Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days." Jesus gave her a simple reply: Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God? It was a gentle rebuke to silence her fears. He then prayed: ‘Lord, I know you will hear my prayers, but for the sake of the people around, for they may see the miracle and believe.’ On hearing the thundering voice of Jesus, the dead Lazarus walked out of the grave! WOW! Is there anything too hard for Him? Tell me.
I could feel the tangible presence of God as I sit alone here in my room, typing this message with fasting and a lot of prayer; I know this message is going to be heard and read by many broken people who are going through innumerable miseries in their life. I am speaking to you right now, let the glory of God fill you wherever you are; may be in the hospital, your office cabin, your car…..I pray Oh God, let them feel Your touch!
