Week 9/Day 5

Read John 11: 38-44

Before the miracle happened Jesus prayed. How did He begin His prayer?

Before Jesus spoke life into Lazarus, before the miracle even took place, Jesus gave thanks.

Maybe we have this thanksgiving thing backwards. We often give thanks after the fact… a response to something. And we certainly should.

But do you remember our definition of faith? Go to Hebrews 11:1 if you need a reminder. Faith not only gives thanks after the miracle, it gives thanks before the miracle ever happens.!

Is there some miracle you’ve been praying for lately, give thanks today even before you see it come to pass.
