It’s been weeks at this point – eight weeks to be exact – and I have no idea how they flew by so quickly. This post has been sitting in draft form for just that long as I tried to get my thoughts around it all.

In the early morning hours of driving up to the hospital (more like the middle of the night), we drove in my husband’s demo from work which has Sirius – which my car does not. He had on a Christian music station which I just love and a song filled the car which I had not heard before. The words and music have played in my head since.

A day or two later came the following words from my devotional and it literally brought me to tears and my knees:

“We are to be animated and characterized by the Holy Spirit.”

“Jesus restores what He has already prayed for.”

“We should be praying in advance for a future crisis, whether to modify or to forestall it.”

(from Devotions on the Greek New Testament, Volume 2, page 47-48)

We assume to know things for which we truly have no knowledge. We need to be in constant prayer for our lives, for the unfolding of God’s purposes in our lives for His glory and honor.

The Lord already knows where He is going to position us in life so that our lives bear Him glory, fulfilling His purposes. We often may think a dream is over, but our God is already raising it to life, keeping it alive until the day He fans it back into a full blaze. He is waiting for the moment when He unfolds the fruition and life in it all.

Much the way, Jesus called Lazarus back to life, He will call forth our dreams, protecting and keeping them from decomposing. Our dreams, aligned with His purposes, will be called to life because of His power over life and death.

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20 – 21, NLT)

“Now I have resurrection power
Living on the inside!”
(from the song “Resurrection Power”, Chris Tomlin)
