At Just the Right Time
In John 11 there is a story about a friend of Jesus...a man named Lazarus. Let me paraphrase a bit for you. Lazarus had gotten sick and died while Jesus was away. Mary and Martha were upset that Jesus did not come when they called for him because they felt that he could have saved his life. They were about to learn something that I learn everyday...Jesus' time table is not mine!
Eventually Jesus shows up, explaining that his tardiness was about to make sense and His father was about to be glorified with a miracle. Hope had dissipated as he had been buried in a tomb for 4 days. The world had given up. But not Jesus. He arrived at the tomb and told those around to roll away the stone. And then he called Lazarus by name! Lazarus...COME FORTH! What they all witnessed next had to be astonishing as this "mummy" limped out of the tomb into their presence! The crowd was amazed and while they all stood there with their jaws open, Jesus told them to unwrap him.
We all have dreams that we feel have died and there are many people that have lost all hope. Life crashes in and you set aside some things that you loved dearly to take care of what must be done. Picture Jesus calling out those things today and those dreams you thought were dead coming to life right before you. Surround yourself with friends that can do what Jesus told all of these to do...unwrap what has come back to life and rejoice. It may take some time to fully expose your dream but with the help of friends and family, you can watch your purpose in this life live to its fullest!
Your dreams can be resurrected just like Lazarus! They aren't dead. You haven't missed your window of opportunity. Dreams, desires, things that I thought were long gone...COME FORTH! Get ready for something special today. YOU may be ready to witness resurrection power!
