TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Trust in God for His miracle working power. Jesus is powerful today and forever! He is looking for those who will deliver His miraculous power without taking His glory.
SETTING MARTHA STRAIGHT
Martha needed a miracle. Problem was, she didn’t think it was available to her on that given day. She doubted the power of Jesus.
Consider carefully how He set her straight.
Her brother, Lazarus, had assumed room temperature. In fact, He was dead and in the tomb four days before His friend Jesus showed up. While Martha threw a little shade His way with the words, “If you would have come, my brother would be alive,” Jesus let it roll off His back. Her comment, though hurtful, was true. What came next showed that she was just mixed up and believed she had to wait for a special day for her miracle.
Martha then said to Him, “I know that He will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is come into the world.”
– John 11:24-27
She basically said, “I believe you are going to be powerful someday.” Jesus changed that doctrine, for Martha and for you and I, by revealing to her that He was powerful right now. He then asked her, “Do you believe this?”
That’s when the Holy Spirit did a work in her as she looked into His incredible Jewish eyes. A revelation landed right in the middle of her heart. “Yes,” she said as the light went on. Notice the present tense in what she is saying – you “are” the Christ, not you “were” or “someday will be” the Christ who “is” come into the world — not “was” or “will!” He is powerful today!
Martha got her miracle as Jesus spoke the words, “Lazarus, come forth!”
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO UNDERSTAND THAT JESUS IS POWERFUL IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW! COME FORTH! YOU ARE HIS MIRACLE AND YOU WERE MADE TO BE A WITNESS OF HIS POWER TO A WORLD POWERLESS TO SIN.
