Day 4

“Asleep, Not Dead.”
So the two sisters sent a message to Jesus telling him, “Lord, the one you love is very sick.” But when Jesus heard about it he said, “Lazarus’s sickness will not end in death. No, it is for the glory of God. I, the Son of God, will receive glory from this.” Although Jesus loved Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, he stayed where he was for the next two days and did not go to them. Finally after two days, he said to his disciples, “Let’s go to Judea again.” (John 11:3-7 NLT)

Lord, the ones you Love are very sick. I want to pray for everyone who has accepted our Lord Jesus Christ into their Heart, Mind, Body and Soul. For there was a time that we all needed to be healed and cried out to the Lord. Our Prayers are like Messages up to Heaven. Our Father listens to our cries and just like here in John, Jesus says that our sickness will not end in Death and God will Receive Glory from this.


I know that God answers Prayers. For years I had a friend who struggled with drinking, partying and drugs. He was apart of that scene for such a long time and really saw no way out. I kept assuring him that God was ready to show his Glory in his Life, but he needed to be ready to believe. When Jesus heard that Lazarus was sick, did he go straight to Judea? No, He waited two days and then he went. Why wait two days, when he knew that Lazarus was sick and needed to be healed right then?


But don’t we all face this situation? My friend needed to be saved from his life style and there were many times when I was on my last dollar that I needed the Lord to come to me in the moment. It is a time like these that we feel that the Lord is not by our side, but we must understand that the Lord knows everything and his Will is made complete. As we read on, Jesus says, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but now I will go and wake him up. (John 11:11)


Thank you Jesus! For I once was Blind Now I can see! I once was dead, but The Lord says I was Just asleep! Don’t you know that Lazarus was in the grave for four days!? And when Jesus came, he resurrected him and brought forth life! Beloved I don’t care what your situation looks like; Drugs, Alcohol, Sexual immorality and any addiction. I tell you the Truth; you are not dead to the Most High God! If Jesus can rise a man from Death, he came rise you out of your situation. It was for Gods Glory that Jesus Brought Lazarus back to Life and if you believe this Day, I tell you that if you seek to be an example of Gods Glory, he will rise you out of your situation today!


Just like Jesus waited until the Fourth Day to Rise Lazarus, He is looking for others who are viewed as dead to the World to rise up for Gods Glory! Let us not ever believe the Lost are dead, because they are the ones that Jesus is looking for. Have a renewing of Faith Today knowing that God is glorified when you are rised and resurrected from your old self. Rejoice, for the world is not dead in Jesus Name, But sleeping and the Lord is coming to Wake the World up!
