Memorise: “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? ” (John 11:40).
Read: John 11: 40-45
Great number of the children of Israel couldn’t get to the promise land because their hearts melted in the wilderness through unbelieve. No man can enjoy the promises of God without believing that His words are true.
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6).
Your knowledge of the word of God compels what you believe. Until there’s a knowing there can never be a believing. It will be difficult for you to believe God’s word for your desired turn around if you are far from God himself. The more you study His words the better your believe system becomes. You can only discover His promises for your destiny when you look through the Word of life daily.
Mary and Martha sent for Jesus because they know He’s able to deliver their brother from that horrible pit of death! What exactly do you believe about the God you serve? Are you merely confessing the word or you are full of assurance of faith that what you confess will certainly come pass? What is that situation in your family, marriage and business that makes you see impossibility instead of victory? Are you seeing failure in place of success? Hear this: “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? ” (John 11:40). Here Jesus was referring to Himself as the resurrection and life. You can’t believe in the resurrection and life and still be thinking of untimely death.
For a reader of this devotional, it’s your turn to see the glory of God! Your season of undeniable result is here. What is God asking from you? Just Believe! Until you believe, you cannot receive from Him. Take away that doubt, put off those negative thoughts of impossibility, reject the stories of failure and uncertainties that flows all around you. This is your season of the miraculous and your testimonies shall humble your mockers.
“And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.” (Luke 1:45). What God has said is settled. God will not change his mind about blessing you. His words says you are healed. He promised you will not lack you mate, he announced to hell and death that you shall never be barren. All He’s asking you to do is to receive this words with faith and take possession of His purpose for your life. He will surely perform His word concerning you and your family and it shall be well with you.
Father, give me the grace to believe You totally and never to accept the dictates of the devil over the issues of my destiny.
