2. Taking hold of God’s will and refusing to let go until His will comes to pass.
In the book of John 11 we read the story of Lazarus.
It wasn’t Lazarus TIME TO DIE JUST YET.
SO MANY TIMES WE LOOK AT THINGS IN THE NATURAL AND NOT THE SPIRITUAL.
WHAT WE THINK IS DEAD TO US CAN COME ALIVE AGAIN IN HIM.
IF WE LET THE ENEMY PUT OUR DREAMS,
OUR PROMISES FROM GOD IN A BOX BECAUSE WE HAVE LIMITED THE POWER OF GOD IN OUR LIFE BY REFUSING TO BELIEVE.
THAT BOX WILL BECOME A COFFIN.
THE ENEMY WOULD LOVE TO SHUT US UP! AND PUT THE LID ON IT.
LET GOD OUT OF THE BOX!
AND LET HIM BE GOD!
BELIEVE FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE
21 “Lord if you had been here…he would not have died.” …Even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you.
JESUS waited 2 more days after he died, why? It was jewish superstition that the soul could return to the body within 3 days of it being dead but on the fourth day there would be no hope for resuscitation.
There is still a rescusitator
There is still a redeemer
THERE IS ONE WHO IS SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER WHO IS INTERCEDING FOR YOU AND I THIS MORNING.
HE KNOWS WHATS AHEAD,
HE KNOWS MORE ABOUT US THAN WE KNOW of OURSELVES,
HE HAS THE PROVISION FOR OUR LIVES EVERYDAY!
Sometimes we may think He is delaying
THE BREAKTHROUGH but in reality He knows the hour to visit you in your state of hopelessness.
Martha said “But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you.”
Before Jesus raised Lazarus
She was expecting a miracle because the one who performs miracles was in her presence.
“WHERE TWO OR THREE ARE GATHERED IN MY NAME, THERE AM I WITH THEM.”
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE INTERCEDE?
When you intercede for someone you are declaring truth in that persons life, whether it be healing, deliverance, salvation etc. you are canceling out the enemy’s plan, binding the work of the enemy and declaring the promises of God on that persons life…
