Scripture - John 11

Observation - Lazarus was raised from the dead- his sisters Mary and Martha had asked Jesus to come sooner, but he arrived after his friend had died. Still, when Jesus showed up, he asked Father to hear his prayer for healing, and Lazarus was raised from the dead!

Even though such a great thing had happened, the religious leaders of the day were trying to stop Jesus’ work and ministry.

Application - God invites us to ask him for help, even in our worst circumstances. Sometimes, the results are not what we hoped for. Regardless, remember what Jesus said to the Father -You Always Hear Me. We can come to Father always inviting him into our circumstances, because Jesus has made us able to approach the Father. Sometimes we see healing, sometimes we only experience his comfort.

What areas of your day do you need to INVITE God into today?

Prayer - Father, I invite you into every area of my life today. Specifically __________ (name some areas that you are inviting Him into)__________. God, I trust you to walk with me on this journey of life, through the highs and lows. I know that sometimes I will even get to see you do miraculous things. Thank you for walking with me through every season. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
