Quite often we want God to do new things in our lives. However, many a times God wants to raise the dead, to bring to life what is dead in our lives, and not just give us brand new things. He wants to renew, give life to the dead things in our lives so that they will bring life to the whole person.
I want to begin by pointing out a correction that Jesus made to Martha's view on resurrection, a mistake that many people make even today.
In John 11:40 we read, "Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” That was a kind rebuke.
