Trusting their coach is a team’s flashlight to the future. Carefully guiding them the coach takes them through the steps needed to prepare for competition and the process of executing it. Without this trust factor whole sport season can be at risk. Following the directives of a coach leads a team to places that they otherwise could not experience.
Mary and Martha were called to trust Jesus in a very dark time of their lives...the death of their beloved brother, Lazarus. Putting their trust in Jesus, they had called for him to come when their brother was dying. His arrival was too late, Lazarus was already in the grave. But Martha’s trust at this dark moment was greater...
“Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” John 11:21 & 22 NIV
Jesus responded to Martha's TRUST IN THE DARK...
Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. “Take away the stone,” he said. Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” John 11:38,39 & 43 NIV
Lazarus came out of the darkness and into the light...alive!
Will you trust Jesus today by following his lead and trusting his power through your dark places of life?
“To trust God in the light is nothing, but to trust Him in the dark—that is faith.” Charles Haddon Spurgeon
PRAYER: Dark places are not easy, Lord. Today I place mine in your hands trusting you to lead and guide me. May I see beautiful lessons as you shine your light of understanding on my darkness. Thank you for your ever-presence. In your Son’s Name I pray, Amen.
