John 11:43 - "...He cried out with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth."
The things that you thought had died long ago; promises buried deep in you long ago -- some 5, even 10 years ago today -- He is calling life out. He is calling 'Lazarus' out of the tomb -- all the promises you thought had died. You thought it was past the time of resurrection possibility.
So say, 'Lazarus, come forth!' Jesus intentionally delayed His appearing past the fourth day to shatter their belief and stretch their faith out of the box that they had put God in. He is breaking off all the limitations, and breaking you out of all the boxes. He is breaking off every limitation you have ever placed on God.
When you thought it was too late for Jesus to show up and do what only He could do in this very divine moment, you're at the tomb of Lazarus. Everyone else around you thinks it's too late for you, too late for your promise -- but Jesus is walking in on the scene, in your very midst and He says to you "Why are you crying? Why are you sobbing?
