Once upon a time, God raised His son Jesus from the dead. Jesus was not the first to be raised, and neither was He the last.
Today, I want you to know that God is still in the resurrection business. He is resurrecting dead marriages, dead attitudes, dead businesses and barren wombs.
While I was in Sunday service, I saw a total remodel. I saw an interior and exterior remodel. God gutted the entire building and was applying plaster to the wall. It led me to believe that God is at work in our situations. He is healing from the inside, out. He is beautifying from the inside, out. He is resurrecting what we have long thought was dead. He is rejuvenating what we thought would never be inhabitable again.
What does God require in the process? Mustard seed faith. Mustard seeds are usually about 1 to 2 millimeters (0.039 to 0.079 in) in diameter. Yes, that small. That is all God requires of you.
If your faith needs a boost, like I know mine sometimes does, play this song by William McDowell. It is the equivalent of an AED machine–used for patients experiencing cardiac arrest–ready to send shock signals to restore your faith.
Lord, I pray for your people. I pray for those who are experiencing dark situations. I pray for those who truly believe they are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. Lord, I pray that you speak life over their situations. What seems dark, may you shine your light. What seems barren, from it may you bring forth life. What seems dead, may you resurrect. We believe in your power, Lord God. We believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, arose from the dead. We believe in the power of miracles. We believe in the Holy Spirit. We believe Lord. And where our faith may fail, Lord please help our unbelief. Please speak into our minds and our hearts and cast out all doubt. Help us to believe in you again. Renew our zeal and our thirst for you Father. Draw us in and renew our spirits. We thank you, and we praise you, for we know that it shall be done. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
