John 11

Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.

(It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.

Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.

His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?

Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

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.

16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:

19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.

31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.

32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.

34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

35 Jesus wept.

36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

55 And the Jews’ passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.

56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?

57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.

34 thoughts on “John Chapter 11 

  1. 3. Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

    4. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

    Don’t assume that every test, trial, or sickness happens to destroy you, but remember where there is no sickness there is no healing, and where there is no test, there is no testimony.

  2. Verses 25-26 MSG “You don’t have to wait for the End. I am, right now, Resurrection and Life. The one who believes in me, even though he or she dies, will live. And everyone who lives believing in me does not ultimately die at all. Do you believe this?” Same verses AMP “Jesus said to her, “[d]I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, relies on) Me [as Savior] will live even if he dies; and everyone who lives and believes in Me [as Savior] will never die. Do you believe this?”

    John 14:6-7 MSG says “Jesus said, “I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him. You’ve even seen him!”

  3. Jesus replied, “Didn’t I tell you that if you had faith, you would see the glory of God?”
    John 11:40 CEV
    Let us put our way of seeing things with the natural eye, and see with our spirtual eue. Jesus is upset because they seem to have forgotten what he told them eatlier about Lazarus. When we do hear the word of GOD spoken our faith must be in agreement in order to see the miraculous to bring glory to Him. I want to hear ‘thy faith has made tge whole’ over ‘O faithless generation!’

  4. 46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.
    47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
    48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation

    We should come to expect backlash for working for kingdom and letting God work through us. while it is ideal for everyone to enjoy the presence and the work of God, it is not the reality. People are going to come against us as we near the endtimes, as we get closer, there will be a much more divided line of who is working for what side. those that call on the name of Jesus are going to flock to His word and the things He is doing, while the other side is going to be threatened knowing what is going to happen as God moves forward in miracles signs and wonders. it is the job of the church to go out and preach and do the work of God, despite any backlash that comes our way.

  5. 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

    26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

  6. 2
    The model prayer which the Lord Jesus gave to them at this time is somewhat different from the so-called Lord prayer in Matthew’s Gospel. These differences all have a purpose and meaning . None of them is without significance .
    First of all , the Lord taught the disciples to address God as our Father . The intimate family relationship was unknown to believers in the O T . It simply means that believers are now to speak to God as to a loving heavenly Father . Next we are thought to pray that God’s name should be hallowed . This expresses the longing of the believer’s heart that He should De reverenced,magnifted , and adored . In the petition, Your kingdom come we have a prayer rat the day will soon arrive when God will put down the forces of evil and in the person of Christ, reign supreme over the earth , where His will shall be done as it is in heaven .

  7. John11:24-25 (English version) Martha replied, I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day. [25] Jesus said to her, I am [ My-self] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in , and relies on) Me,although he may die, yet he shall live; And whoever continues to live and believes in ( has faith in, cleaved to, and relies on) Me shall never [ actually] die at all. Do you believe this ? And Martha said yes I do believe in you that you are Christ the Messiah. There’s nothing my God can’t do! Have patience and wait upon the Lord coming, It’s not about us it about church! Some people just want listen to us! But there hope for people to come back to the Lord. I l believed that we are going to see a Harvest hungry soul revival in these last days. I blessed you in Jesus name above all names.

  8. 34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
    35 Jesus wept.
    36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
    37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?
    38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

    Why would Jesus react the way He did? He did so many miracles and He didn’t react that way with anyone else….
    It all comes down to relationship. God loves everyone, but I think if you want a bigger reaction out of God you’ll have to invest the time, energy, and love it takes to build a solid relationship built on Love, Trust, Faith and His Word. Look at the key principles of a healthy relationship and apply it to prayer life. Open two sided communication, respect, love, enjoying each other’s company, forgiveness. If we apply these principles our relationship with God can grow exponentially. He is our greatest friend and love if we allow Him to be. He’s just waiting on us.

  9. 51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

    52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

    One prophesied, while the others planned a murder. Two men in different spectrums of life. How blind can this world be? Jesus spoke about not walking in the dark so you won’t trip over obstacles that’s better to walk in the light of day. Jesus is the light!!!! At the same time Lazarus walks out of the tomb bound and blinded by wraps of death. As Jesus tells them untied him and let him go!!! What bounds you today or in what darkness are you walking that you fear you may tripped????? Jesus is the freedom giver and the lamp unto your feet!!! He is the giver of everlasting life!!! JESUS ITS ALL YOU WILL NEED!!!!!

  10. 4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

    That situation you are in, that trial you are facing, it is not meant to kill you, it’s meant to grow you.
    With darkness all around it may seem as if you are being buried, but the truth is you are being planted into the Kingdom of God!
    The process of being buried and being planted often look the same, but if you could see everything God is doing underneath the surface, you would stop asking “why God?” And start asking “how Lord are you going to receive glory in this?”

  11. John 11
    Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
    25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
    26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

  12. “Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭11:9-10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Thankful for the Light! He didn’t leave us the same way he found us. He filled us with His light to be the light of the world. And we must work while it is day.

    “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:105‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭8:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    “And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.”
    ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:23‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  13. iLove the Kingdom
    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.

    What is the underlying meaning of this particular verse? I’ve read this verse for years and never caught it…Every Word of God that is written is written for a reason. Let’s break it down. Jesus says, “I am glad for your sakes that I was not there…” Ok, this scripture is amazing when you think about it, because Jesus is saying “if” he would have been there Lazarus would not have died. What does this mean? Jesus is saying to them that He would not have refused to heal Lazarus had he been there. In fact, when did Jesus refuse to heal anyone? When did Jesus refuse to fill anyone with the Holy Ghost? Many folks unintentionally put the blame on Jesus when they dont get their miracle, but the truth is, if we could find a way to get Jesus into the midst of our situation, he would heal. Once again, if he had been there when Lazarus was alive and only sick, HE WOULD HAVE HEALED HIM. Jesus admits it and the sisters admit it and there is no denying the fact. So, why do people not get there miracle? It’s unbelief. That’s on us, not on Jesus. Matthew 13:57-58 KJV And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. (58) And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

    We have the promise that by His stripes we were healed. We gotta find a way to insert faith and do whatever we need to do to touch the hem of His garment.The woman with the issue of blood didn’t even ask, she just took what was rightfully hers. She took her healing, she did not ask Jesus. She understood it was hers. Why would you ask for something that already belongs to you? If you’re asking God to heal, it’s not yours…if you are exercising authority and speaking it into existence then you have the revelation that it was already been given to you.

    The point is this, if Jesus would have been there Lazarus would not have died. We have to find out how to get Jesus into our lives…and how to obtain the promises He has given.

    THE BENEFITS OF THE LORD BELONG TO US
    Psalms 103:1-5 KJV A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. (2) Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his BENEFITS: (3) Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; (4) Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; (5) Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

  14. Some would say that Jesus was just a great prophet, but his very words declare that he is greater than just another prophet sent to the nation of Israel. ‘Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?’ Note that although Jesus declared what he was, he still required Mary to respond as to whether she personally believed this was so. It was not enough to hear, or even to agree if you do not believe for yourself and are willing to act upon that belief!

    The latter portion of the discussion reinforces this principle. ‘Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?’ This is why unbelievers can continue to scoff and in all honesty declare they have never seen the glorious works of God… because it is only promised to those who first believe! Some may be fortunate to be present when the miraculous occurs and be given the opportunity to reevaluate their belief, but only because they’re in the presence of those who are familiar with his glory! Because these signs shall follow those that believe!

  15. 48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

    It is sad that these religious leaders only thought of if their positions and perhaps their livelihoods. Had they considered Jesus their Messiah and considered the miracles he did, the power of God he yielded, they could have seen that he would also intervene for their nation. Instead they plotted to take his life when his Jesus fully intended to freely give his live for them, his nation and this people. I am thankful for Calvary, though sad that they hated him enough to crucify him that way. I am thankful for the blood he shed for me, for the stripes he bore for my healing.

  16. St. John 11:9-10
    9) Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.
    10) But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

  17. 10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

    How are you going to get anywhere successfully if you can’t see where you’re going?? We need the light, this world needs the light – we just get Jesus and we need to be Jesus. Period!

  18. I love to worship the Lord
    Vs 39
    Jesus said take ye away the stone Martha the sister of him that was dead sairh unto him. Lord by this time he stinketh for he had been dead four days

  19. 9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.

  20. John 11

    4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

    There are many things in life that we allow to bring attention to self . When in reality God is wanting to receive glory . Jesus spoke of a sickness that had come upon Lazarus one that was not unto death. Jesus could have spoken the word immediately to heal Lazarus but He did not. He waited for the sickness was to be glory to God! Few scriptures down we see Jesus weeping. Many thought it was because Lazarus had died but it was not .

    The unbelief of His words .
    When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.”

    33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. 34 “Where have you laid him?” he asked.

    “Come and see, Lord,” they replied.

    35 Jesus wept.

    36 Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!”

    37 But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?”

    Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead
    38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said.

    “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”

    40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.”

    33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. 34 “Where have you laid him?” he asked.

    “Come and see, Lord,” they replied.

    35 Jesus wept.

    36 Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!”

    37 But some of them said, “Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?”

    Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead
    38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said.

    “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”

    40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

    God wants us to reveal Hus glory. Doubt unbelief has to be put aside. Yes our human nature will doubt but that’s when we too must pray Lord help my unbelief. Jesus wept the shortest scripture in the Bible and one of the easiest to remember but He wept because of His words were so quickly forgotten. Hold to His Word . Believe it! Live it!

    40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”

  21. THY KINGDOM COME
    WHERE IS HE?

    56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?
    57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.

    We understand the principal behind the search for JESUS. However, we also undestand the quest to find HIM.

    In Matthew 6:33 we are instructed to seek FIRST The Kingdom of GOD.
    In Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. We are instructed to seek with all of our heart.

    The Psalmist offers this observation of “WHERE IS HE”.

    Psalms 139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
    9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
    10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

    JESUS said in John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

    Understand that JESUS can be anywhere and everywhere at all times, because HE is SPIRIT, even in us through the Power of the Holy Ghost.

    WHERE IS HE in your life today?

  22. So the sisters sent a message to Him: “Lord, the one You love is sick.”

    Now Jesus loved Martha, her sister, and Lazarus. So when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was.

    I’m glad for you that I wasn’t there so that you may believe. But let’s go to him.”
    John 11:3‭, ‬5‭-‬6‭, ‬15 HCSB

    Jesus knew the will and plan of God, but that did not always make it easy for Him to follow it. He loved this family, SO He waited until after the death to come to them? (That seems odd, doesn’t it?) When He saw their grief-filled faces and their hurt, He was so moved that He began to groan and weep Himself. Other translations say He became angry; He was so upset with their grief that He heatedly demanded to know where the tomb was so He could relieve their suffering.

    All this emotion is something that we don’t often read about coming from Jesus—except when it concerns what He dearly loves (i.e., He became angry over the misuse of His House, and He wept over the lost city of Jerusalem). I believe Jesus had so much love for this family that He knew He would be tempted to disobey God’s will and heal Lazarus should He arrive before the death. Moreover, Jesus purposely put off His arrival until a time after decay would have set in so that the scope of His resurrection power could not be misunderstood. Jesus knew Himself. Within minutes of His arrival, whenever that was, He was going to be overcome with compassion and moved to work on Martha and Mary’s behalf. Thus, He waited to arrive until the will of God could be done.

    I see three things in this story:
    1) Jesus’ humanity – He was, and is, touched by the feelings of our infirmities. He is moved by compassion to desire to relieve our sufferings.
    2) Jesus’ answer to struggling with temptation – He had to stay away, because He knew He would be tempted to give in to the desires of others. We could save ourselves much heartache if we would just learn to avoid tempting situations. Just don’t go there. Flee youthful lusts.
    3) Jesus’ absence, or delay, is for the greater good. He may allow our suffering, but He always shows up in the perfect will of God. Death is not final. Weeping may endure for a night, but there will be joy again in the morning. We may not understand His absence, but we can trust His heart of compassion.

  23. 32 When Mary arrived and saw Jesus, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died.”

    How many have we asked ourselves this same question, “Lord, if only you had been here”. During your times of trouble, we ask, why wasn’t God here for me. Yes, we may go through hardships, but believe, you will endure, and God will show up when you least expect it.

  24. 45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

    46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

    Can you imagine how those that ran to the Pharisees, will feel when they “Look upon His”

  25. Do you believe?

    23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
    24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
    25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
    26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

    Do you believe that He can? Do you believe that he can do whatever you are asking of Him? One of the greatest tests as a Christian is having faith and believing that God can. Trust in God. Those are three words that are so powerful and meaningful. Yet we say it without thinking. Just trust God. When we do it. It is one of the greatest faith building actions that can happen, trusting in God for whatever it is.
    So again I ask, do you believe?

  26. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
    John 11:4 KJV

    This sickness is NOT unto death! The opposite is true also, some sicknesses are unto death. Now we believe that Jesus can heal any and all sicknesses. There is NOTHING too hard for the Lord. Yet, God’s ways are above our ways! We don’t know what is best in every situation and He does! That’s why we pray for His will to be done and trust Him to do what’s best for the kingdom!

  27. 20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

    21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

    How fitting that this chapter would be today’s blog when our hearts our heavy over the loss of Monica Galvan. In our minds we may question but God why? Yet we know that God does all things well and we must trust that He knows what He is doing even today, just like when Lazarus died. We may never understand, but God doesn’t ask us to always understand, just trust Him. Today, God we trust you.

  28. 10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

    How confident is your footsteps

    At times in our life we seem to be lost with no direction, we wander off. It’s those times when we follow our flesh or the things of this world when we get lost. It’s the times when we start walking right into the dark with no idea what we’re getting ourselves into.
    But when you walk with Jesus you’re always one step ahead of the darkness.

    There is surety in the Lord. Seek ye first the Kingdom and when darkness comes you won’t stumble

  29. 33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.
    34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
    35 Jesus wept.

    Crazy, when we want something so badly, and are willing to get Jesus’s attention, anything can happen.

  30. 14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

    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 Lord knows. No matter where you are at or what situation is going on around your life, he knows exactly where you are.

  31. 9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

    10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

    • One of the most wonderful things about him is on some levels you can relate. It makes him human. Like when it says he wept. Like he still cried even tho he new he was going to bring him back. It makes our relationship to him that much more personal.
