Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 185

  1. “But, Lord, by this time there is a bad odor” (John 11:39).

What are the reasons we give that God cannot do the miracle we long for? Here, the tomb represents Martha’s greatest defeat, but opening it seems even more unacceptable. How can we do that, she wonders. But her miracle is on the other side of that stone, and the hope she can barely touch is just waiting to burst forth. Would she keep the tomb closed? Do we? How often are we within grasp of our greatest miracle, but then shrink back because something seems even more unacceptable to us? When one fully trusts God, he will allow His Savior to break through every stone that barricades the path to victory–even the unseemly ones. Everything must be given up if there is to be the victory we long for.
