Daily Reading – 2 Kings 13-14 / John 11:1-37
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
John 11:21-22 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Oh how death in a family will cause a flood of emotions in people’s hearts. Some will turn from God, blaming Him for the death of a loved one. Thinking, a loving God would have stopped this. However, we forget, death is part of the curse humanity brought upon themselves. God’s original intention was for us not to die. Sin brought this ugly phenomenon to earth.
While some turn from God, yet others turn to Him. Martha in our passage says, “But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.” She said, “Even now,” meaning even in death our most horrible advisory, Jesus, I believe in you. Jesus still is working to bring about earthly and eternal life. Martha said “But I Know.”
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
