As she was sharing she said she felt that in their fight she had laid aside some truths. Specifically, this truth: "But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him." 2 Corinthians 2:14
First, let me say, and I think ya'll all would agree with me, that I have never seen Melanie lay aside truth. She has carried more truth, spoken more truth, meditated on more truth during the past four months than anyone I've ever known. She is truly a lady filled with faith.
After we got off the phone, I pondered the triumphal procession. I began to think about Lazarus. Upon his death, noone was looking for a miracle. In fact, every.single.person thought that once Lazarus had died, it was too late for Jesus to do anything. Martha even tell him that he's too late!
God chose to heal Lazarus because he was moved. The Bible says Jesus was moved by the Spirit. . John 11 The New Living even says because he was angered. I like to think God is angered by cancer, don't you?
I am asking God to be moved for the sake of Andrew and the Dorseys. I am choosing to believe the impossible. I am asking God to raise Andrew from the dead. I know He has. I know He can. I am choosing to believe He will.
And I am praying with all my might that He will give me the faith to believe it. Won't you join me?
"For nothing is impossible with God." Luke 1:37
