I know it isn't Thursday. Brenda is helping me out with a post today. And yes, she will be here on Thursday!
REMOVE THE STONE. We get to a crossroads in life and are afraid to move forward. Jesus said to Martha, remove the stone. Martha commented, Lord there will be a stench for he has been dead for four days. (Lazarus in the grave) No good will come if you do not obey God. Because Martha could not see any immediate good she assumed there was no good to be found. The refusal to remove the stone is saying ....God, I do not trust you with what I cannot see. Know that our sight is limited, our knowledge is limited, our understanding is limited. God already knows the end from the beginning. This is to be done for the Glory of God. When God ask you to do things you do not understand....do it anyway. Remove the stone. Remove the doubt. Remove the fears. (John 11:39-40). "Did I not say to you, if you believe, you will see the glory of God?"
