Week 4 | Friday - If You Believe
Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
JOHN 11:40, NIV
Sometimes it can be difficult to get around our own logical thoughts to make room for God. Jesus faced the same type of skepticism in His ministry. In John 11:40, Jesus spoke these words to Martha after her brother Lazarus had died. He instructed that the tomb stone be rolled away, and Mary questioned Jesus’ logic. It made no sense. Lazarus had been dead four days. There was an odor! Jesus simply encouraged Martha to believe and she would see miracles. And Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead!
To experience God’s power in our lives, we must remove any limitations we have placed on Him. In all of our knowledge, we must make room for what is beyond our comprehension. The God who created everything desires nothing more than to show up in your world in miraculous, unexplainable ways, if you believe.
That’s what the Beyond journey is all about. It’s about hearing from God, stepping out in faith, and seeing God do a miracle. Take a moment to reflect on our theme verse one more time:
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us (Ephesians 3:20, NASB).
What miracle are you believing God to do in your life, in your family, and in your community today?
WHAT IS GOD SAYING TO ME?
HOW CAN I APPLY IT?
TALK TO GOD ABOUT IT.
