(This was my post yesterday around 10pm, I just deleted the first one due to technical errors)
Before going to bed, natuwa akong basahin yung mga devotions ko from April to May at sobra akong na-amaze sa revelation ng Lord sakin nung April 21, 2014. I just want to share you on what God had taught me about this life.
Take away the stone.” – John 11:39
The story is about when Jesus went to raise Lazarus from the dead at sinabi Niya doon sa mga tao na alisin yung bato. Actually kaya naman ni Lord gawin yun mag-isa. Kaya Niyang alisin yung bato sa libingan ni Lazarus because we know that He is powerful but God revealed it to me that rolling that stone away from the door of the tomb are the things that those people can only do. They couldn’t raise Lazarus from the dead, but they could roll the stone away.
How to apply this to our life? God expect us to do all we can and then He will do what we can’t. Matthew 7:7-8 said that “for everyone who asks receives and he who seeks finds and to Him who knocks, it will be opened”. Maybe 9 out of 10 doors we try are locked and we only going to find one open but we have got to do what we can. We can’t just sit there and say, “God revel it to me!” God expect us to put feet to our prayers to get out and do a little hoofing and look.
If we are doing our best to please and obey God, He will do almost anything for us, some of the most amazing things we could possibly imagine!
Father God in heaven, thank you for Your encouraging words. Please help me and the one who is reading this to remember the important message about doing what we can and then trusting You to do the rest. Help me to have faith in You but also the determination to do all we can and push forward! In Jesus, Amen.
Your sweetest Melody, ❤
