Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.” John 11:40-43 (NIV)
Passage: John 11:38-44
Anyone need a witness? The physical world surrounds us, but so does the spiritual world. It is often difficult to believe that things in the physical world will ever change in miraculous ways. We may find it easier to explain miraculous things away, or question if we had assessed the situation accurately in the first place, before we would believe. Somehow it can even be easier to believe that some kind of miraculous spiritual breakthrough will occur before we will believe in a real physical change. Jesus has shown us that both physical and spiritual miracles can occur in a moment. May we believe that we may see, both physically and spiritually. Lord God, I pray you will open our eyes so that we may see. In Jesus’ name, I pray.
