Resurrection: Christians To Have Faith In God of Wonders
(Passage: 2 Kings 13)
GOD indeed is powerful; he has the power to do anything that he likes, and there is no limit to the magnitude of his power.
The demonstration of God’s remarkable power was reflected in the Bible time when the unspoken situation happened. Prophet Elisha who served the Lord all his life died and was buried, but that’s not the end of the story.
God used Prophet Elisha greatly during his lifetime to perform many miracles- all to the glory of God.
During his lifetime, Elisha raised a dead person to life; he made an ax (a metal object) to float on water. Elisha also averted a long-standing famine overnight, and many other great stories about him were written in the Bible.
Indeed Elisha is one of the greatest prophets ever lived; however, as it normally happens to everyone, “End of life is the end of story,” but Elisha’s case was different: his dead bone resurrected another dead man to life!
How did this happen? Let’s read from the scripture:
“Then Elisha died, and they buried him. And the raiding bands from Moab invaded the land in the spring of the year. So it was, as they were burying a man, that suddenly they spied a band of raiders; and they put the man in the tomb of Elisha; and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet” (2 Kings 13:21).
Faith In God Has Resurrection Power
Faith proves God’s resurrection power! The God that Christians serve is full of wonders. He does many unimaginable things for people who trust in him. People who serve God will enjoy his benefits on earth and in heaven.
Any Christian who faithfully serve God will have a basket full of testimony to share with other people! However, the challenge is left to anyone who intends to enjoy God’s benefit to not doubt his power.
People who doubt God may see their benefits eroded! It is important that a believer trust God and patiently wait to receive his help difficult a moment. God will show up in due time to benefit whosoever cast his complete trust in him.
Be hopeful in God. Trust him, and you will experience his resurrection power!
