“Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” John 11:40.
Mary, Martha, and Lazarus were sisters and brother and friends of Jesus. As in most families each child had their own personality and grace. Mary was the emotional, spoilt, but adoring fan of Jesus. Martha was the perfectionist, hardworking, and practical sister who also loved Jesus.
Lazarus their brother became sick and the sisters sent for Jesus to come and heal him. Jesus was delayed in ministry and by the time he arrived, Lazarus was dead for four days. When Martha heard that Jesus was on His way to them, she went out to meet Him for a private conversation because before Him she could let her guard down and express her pain. “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” (John 11:21,22). Note Martha the perfectionist had to first mention that He was late, but now that you are here, all things are possible now that you are here.
Jesus coached her in faith to believe that He is the Resurrection and the Life. Nothing is over until God says it is over. What ever is closed can be opened by God. Jesus is the Author and Finisher of life. Her faith in God would make her see the resurrection glory of God and she did. The CHAYIL (powerful great) Glory of Jesus was greater that death. If you believe today you will also see the glory of God in your life with miracles.
I believe in the King of Glory and I shall see His Glory in all areas of my life.
