LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF LUKE 8:52-54,56.
" And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not; she is not dead, but sleepeth.
53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.
55 And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat.
56 And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.
1. if they don't laugh at you now , how can God make you? Even Jesus our Master was laughed at !Note.
2.If they don't laugh at you , how can God "celebrate" you ? What story will you have to share ? I remember years ago when I use to trek some distance to church every sunday , how my friends will drive pass , pretending not to see me. lol, wow, but not today! glory to God.Amen.
3.Your testimony is hidden inside their laughter; so if you desire to see it , you have to be determined ,resolute, steadfast and keep your focus like Jesus was. Jesus was never moved by his mockers . Don't be. Scripture says in the book of 1 Cor 15:58 " Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." Pay day is coming .God is not a task master! Amen.
4.When God wants to perform a great miracle in your life , he allows your enemies to go ahead of your first , while he prepares you behind the scenes for a major "breakthrough" in that area of your life , everyone thought , it wasn't going to happen. Scripture says "But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first." Matt 19:30. I drop you a hint . Have you seen the new luxury jets yet ? or the diamond crested cars? lol .hmm
5.It was after they mocked at jesus , the miracle took place , not before.Note. and scripture says in verse 56 "And her parents were astonished". Men willbe astonished when you share your testimony in the name of Jesus ,Amen. so , " you don't ve a womb " "you ve sold your house" " you re broke" " you don't ve a husband/wife " "you can't make it" re all signs your miracle is about to happen !Amen. Don't give up!.
YOUR SHAME IS ONLY FOR A SEASON ; GOD IS ABOUT TO PROVE THEM WRONG !AMEN.
I PRAY FOR YOU ; BEFORE THIS YEAR IS OVER IN THE NAME OF JESUS , YOU WILL SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY TO THE GLORY OF GOD IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.
