PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
Topic: PACKAGED FOR PRAISE
Text: John 11:1-45
5; Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.
6; When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.
There is a lot to learn from the miracle of Lazarus beyond the miracle itself, most times we are so concern about the miracle that we forget the purpose of the miracle, and there are instances when people experience miracles but the purposes are defeated. Let me quickly say that every miracle God has a purpose, and it is always to glorify God and draw people to God.
I want to focus on the process of the miracle and purpose of the problem. Jesus was aware his friend, Lazarus, was sick, people expected that he would rush there but rather delayed for 2 days, of course he wouldn’t have love his friend to die, but this man his critically is ill while Jesus delayed.
Lazarus health was deteriorating, he lost appetite, feeling feverish, losing weight, probably not able to talk, bedridden while Jesus delayed and eventually Lazarus died, Jesus knew he died even when no one told him. Look at Jesus statement in v.15; And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
The delay was for a purpose, it have to be a bigger testimony, God must be glorified, some people must believe he is Christ, Lazarus was being packaged for praise, it has to be a total package ofpraise, his life must bring praise to God. It was not that Jesus wanted him to go through pains, it is important you understand that God does not create problem for us, but rather brings us out of problem.
Just like Lazarus’s case, you might be experiencing delay in one area or the other, I am glad to announce to you that your life is being packaged for praise. God don’t leave his own just as you can’t leave your children, God is packaging you for praise, he allows you to go through those challenges just as he allows the devil to tempt Job, but it all ended in praise, yours will also end in praise.
Everyone who believes his or her life will end in praise, praises God in advance, it is like someone assures you of a huge amount of money as gift, you will be excited from the time you got the news even when you have not received the money. It is important you celebrate God’s Faithfulness to his promises, be rest assured that all you are going through now will end up in praise. God allows things for a purpose and that purpose will be accomplished in your life.
* Lord I celebrate you for you are packaging my life for praise.
* My testimony will daze people.
* I am for signs and wonders.
