Hurt Will Convince Us To Hide  - Beloved Women – November 19, 2019

 

READ

 

“So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary remained seated in the house.” (John 11:20 ESV)

 

TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT

 

When a worshipper’s heart is broken by life, the natural response is to shut everyone else out. Nothing makes us feel so out of control like the disappointments life carries. During the unstable moments in life, confusion might have us hiding in an attempt to hold onto what’s left until we feel safe and secure again.

 

When her beloved brother died, Mary was confused. How could the miracle-working Jesus let this happen? While her sister Martha ran to meet Jesus, Mary stayed home. What was the use? Death had swept through her house and stolen what she loved.

 

Jesus didn’t give a reason for Lazarus’s death. He simply asked Martha to believe in His ability to raise dead things to life.

 

We don’t have to have the answers when we believe Jesus holds the power to resurrect hope and joy in our lives again.

 

PRAY

 

Jesus, I believe You are the resurrection and the life. I trust You with everything I hold dear, even when good things die and my heart is broken. I still choose Your timing in Your ways because that is what will most glorify You, God. In Jesus Christ Name, I pray, Amen.

 

REFLECT

 

What circumstances are you struggling to make sense of? Everyone reaches for something when it seems God is silent. Where are you hiding or finding refuge in the storm?

 

SHARE

 

We don’t have to have the answers when we believe Jesus holds the power to resurrect hope and joy in our lives again.
