Jesus to Martha, “…if you believe, you will see the glory of God.” John 11:40

Jesus to Lazarus, “Lazarus, come forth!” vs. 43

“if…” If, not when. It’s not that we wait long enough and it’ll happen. It’s a “do it” moment. We roll the stone away, step out of the boat, saying yes, without hesitation. (Some hesitation is sometimes ok. Sometimes not.) “If” is the color gray. We cannot stay in gray, we must step out of gray into color!

“believe.” The one and only. But not believe in any one or any thing, or our husband or wife, or the president. Believe in “Him who sent Me” – the light – the resurrection and the life – the open gate. The One who lights our path and will not cause us to stumble. The Mighty to save and willing to heal. Our Friend! Believe, also, that He moves at the sound of your voice. “Believe” is the color red. Believe in the power of the name of Jesus—His blood—and anything, everything!, is possible.

“glory of God.” You will see the glory. Glory: honor, applause, dazzling light, excites admiration. “The celestial light that surrounds angels.” Excellence and perfection (from Strongs). Hope. His presence as we worship. His presence as we give thanks. Majesty and splendor. White? Gold? Purple? Difficult choice.

Two marvelous testimonies came my way in the last day. One of a friend’s daughter who was healed while she sat on Poppa’s lap. Another of an in-laws’ knee, who then turned to pray for his wife and she started to feel sensation in her side, after suffering the after effects of a stroke. Jesus! (Am prompting them to tell the entire testimonies on NewDay’s fan page.)

As Reinhard Bonnke would say, “Hallelujah!”

only believe
