Take This Simple Yet Powerful Step to See the Glory of God

"Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" (John 11:40).

Having commanded the stone to be rolled away from the place where Lazarus was buried, Jesus challenged Martha not only to obedience but to expectant faith: "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" (John 11:40). In essence, He was saying, "It's time to place all of your small, mustard seed-sized faith in Me and My promise to you."

Martha had said she had faith. She intellectually believed what Jesus had said. But Martha needed to make the transition from faith to trust. After all, while belief is the consent of the mind and faith is a choice of the will, trust is a commitment of the heart.

The time had come for Martha to put her faith into action by surrendering all her hopeful expectations and heartfelt longings and practical common sense and simply trust Him. And the time has come for you to simply trust Him. Trust Him! {eoa}
