DAY 11 - Trust Me
Today’s Reading: John 11
**If you read Day 10 before 2p.m. yesterday, please read Day 10 again for I have made two major amendments after I published the original one. It is so amazing that Jesus had two important conversations to me yesterday that I needed to change what I wrote accordingly.
(Please read John 11: 1 – 57 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog.)
Please click the links below to John 11:
Mary and Martha were supposed to be Jesus best friends but when the storm came they did not trust Jesus. That’s why “Jesus wept.” John 11: 35
Without trust, even Jesus had a heart-breaking weeping! I can’t recall how many times I wept for not being trusted!
Trust is so simple but also so difficult. Without trust, we cannot do anything. And that’s the main area that the Deceiver has been working on all churches, clergy, leaders and people. Pull the trust away, then everything falls.
Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” John 11:40
John is using the no. 7 “see” which I stated in Day 1(Please read Day 1):
7. Optano(You will see greater things than these, John 1: 50, 51) – To allow one’s self to be seen. Matthew 5: 8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Yes, we hide ourselves in order to not be seen and so that we can not be able to see what God wants us to see. And the ridiculous thing is we think that we can hide ourselves from God. We think we rather trust other people or source! TRUST ME! Have you heard what Jesus just told you?
When Lazarus was resurrected by Jesus, he asked the people standing around to take off Lazarus’ grave clothes and let him go. In fact, without trust, people wrapping other people with layers and layers of grave clothes. Jesus told me today that my job is to help more people to be able to see what they are really doing and stop doing those discouraging and grave clothes wrapping business. Our job is to be a channel like John the Baptist to point people to Jesus. They received salvation from Him and we take of f their grave clothes and let them be set free!
Dear Lord Jesus, Stop me from wrapping grave clothes onto others. Let me receive your anointing that I can be able to trust you and take away other's grave clothes. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
