“Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come forth!’ And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go’.” John 11:43-44, NKJV.
Lazarus was dead, but Jesus called him forth and brought him back to life. For those that use to love seeking the Lord and spending time in His presence. For those that use to love to pray and study God’s Word, but now you don’t. You use to be a man of ambition, but now you’re a man of comfort. Jesus is calling you forth!
The Lord is calling you, all of you, forth. He’s calling your obedience, your faith, your diligence, and perseverance forth. He’s calling you from the background to lead in this hour. As with Lazarus, He’s commanded all of hell to let you go. He’s spoken to sin and death, even your past, to let you go. You can walk in whatever God has destined for your life.
Jesus says come forth and rise. It’s time to take your place.
Confession: I hear my Lord calling me, all of me, forth. I will step forward and embrace my purpose. I will be who He has called me to be. I will love Him with all my heart. I will love His word. I will let go of this world for heaven. I will advance the kingdom. I will break forth! I will come forth!
