“And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth” (John 11:43-44).
Wouldn’t you have loved to have been there that day? Jesus’ very dear friend, Lazarus, had been dead four days. In profound grief, both of Lazarus’ sisters told the Lord that “if” only He had been there, their brother would not have died. What a powerful miracle the Lord Jesus was about to perform! He stood at the grave. He lifted His voice. He gave the command. He Who holds all power, even over life and death, spoke and immediately the answer came. I am encouraged today, knowing that the One to Whom I belong possesses all power over all situations. I can trust Him today.
For today: How will this affect you today?
