The world had already moved on, the end of the story already written.
But the story was not over for God.
“So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me.” (John 11:41 NIV)
Thanks giving was the prelude to this miracle.
“Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”
“The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” (John 11:43-44 NIV)
You may think that the story has already been written. You may have closed the book and rolled the stone over that part of your life.
Jesus still defies death. You may think the story is over but God doesn’t.
He will call life from where death prevails and unbind the grave clothes the cling.
What area does God wanting to breath life into you today?
Be free. Have faith. Grab onto new life and step out of the old grave clothes that belong to the past.
Walk in your new life in Christ.
And when you come to a place where fear rises up to tell you that the story is already over, begin to give thanks that in Christ your story has just begun.
