Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?"

‭‭John‬ ‭11:25-26‬

The fact that before He raised her brother Lazarus from the dead,  Martha was able to answer His question, “Do you believe this?” with a clear confession of faith, “Yes, Lord; I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God,” shows us that she was ready to believe and trust in Him without seeing the proof of His statement, which came an hour or so later.

God often calls us to confess our faith before we see His hand in action. As our faith grows, He pushes us to the next level of trust in Him in order to stretch our faith and strengthen it. He asks, “Will you trust Me even now?“  When we are ready to say, “Yes, Lord, I will trust You even with this,” then we see the next miracles happen.

The question is, will we trust Him before we see our prayers answered? Will we trust Him even without seeing the next miracle? Will we accept whatever answer He chooses to give us, before we know what the answer is? Because our faith has to be in Him, not in the answer to our prayers.

Lord, I trust You. You are the Lord; hear and answer my prayers according to Your will and purpose in my life. Give me a heart that believes, even as I wait. Amen.

Pastor Dan Giles
