Do you know it is not final in any dark place you find yourself in when you serve the God of resurrection? Your cave becomes the birthplace of your miracles.
Elijah emerged from the cave as one who appointed the next King over Israel and Elisha as a Prophet.
1 Kings 19:16 Also you shall anoint Jehu the son of Nimshi as king over Israel. And Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place.
Lazarus emerged from the cave as a man who had conquered death because of the command of Jesus, who is the resurrection and the life.
John 11:23-27 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
John 11:43-44 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 grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”
Jesus emerged from the cave as the King of Kings, who had conquered death.
Mark 16:1-6 Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him. 2 Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. 3 And they said among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away—for it was very large. 5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.
Let me encourage you, the next time you find yourself in a dark place, it is the place where kings are made if you choose to look at it from God’s perspective.I know it might not be easy but learn to respond to God with a fully surrendered heart having a divine revelation that the darkness of that cave will become the birthplace of an infinitely greater season. If Jesus never gave up on you at the Cross! that only means He will never give up on you.
