Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid... And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. John 11:41a-44
We all have an issue that we have buried for one reason or another. Whether it's because we don't want to be disappointed anymore if it doesn't come to pass, or because it is to painful and difficult to deal with. Regardless of the reason, we felt the need to bury it.
Here we have an example of what happens when the Word of God is spoken. Lazarus had been dead for fours days; cold, stinking, bound, and buried in the tomb. Jesus comes and speaks to Lazarus to come forth and to the gravesclothes to loose him. Lazarus was restored back to life. Talking About Power!
God's Word is life. It is known as The Living Word. We have been told time and time again to speak life over our situations. Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. So the way to change our circumstances is through speaking the Word of God over them.
What situations or circumstances have you rolled the stone in front of? What issue is so stinky or cold or painful that just the thought of it makes you shiver at this very moment? Whatever it is, it's time to "remove the stone." It's time to allow Jesus to speak to your situation, and allow restoration to begin. Allow God to give you double for your trouble. To give back that which was lost over the years. Don't miss your opportunity for your health, children, spouse, finances, etc. to be restored. Allow God's promises to manifest in your life. Stand back and witness the goodness of the Lord! You'll be glad you did!!
And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I have sent among you. Joel 2:25
