An Opportunity to Believe
I have a prayer list. Don’t we all? Whether written or remembered, we have people and circumstances on our hearts that we bring before the Lord.
It seems that as the years go by, the list not only changes, but deepens. Sometimes it’s as though the burdens get heavier. I have witnessed so many situations that have appeared to be hopeless, and yet God moves in such a way as to once again show Himself more mighty than any flaming arrow the enemy can come up with.
There is a wonderful peace in knowing that ‘no matter what’ may come along, our God is more than able to get us through. He may not take the route we want Him too, but that’s His prerogative. He sees the bigger picture. He sees the work that needs to be done, not only in us, but for His glory.
John 11:14-15 14 Then he told them plainly, “Lazarus is dead. 15 And for your sake, I am glad I wasn’t there, because this will give you another opportunity to believe in me. Come, let’s go see him.” NLT
There are a few people on my prayer list today that are facing a mountain. My prayer is first that the mountains would be moved, that they would be released from the trial that is in their path. I’m praying for a miracle for them.
I know that He will take their hand, pull them close and wrap His arms around them. He promised to never leave us or forsake us. If God’s will is for them to walk through the fire, as it so often is, they will not do it alone. I pray that they would have peace. I pray that God would be glorified and many would see His hand working in these precious lives.
I pray that those around them would see hope. It is hope that keeps us fighting and hope that keeps us from giving up.
If you are facing a mountain today, trust Him, believe Him, He’s right there with you. If you know me at all, you’ve heard me say it over and over again, He IS faithful.
Don’t let your mind worry, just know that He is faithful.
He may just be giving others an opportunity to believe.
