Luke 7:12 As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out—the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her. 13 When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.”14 Then he went up and touched the bier they were carrying him on, and the bearers stood still. He said, “Young man, I say to you, get up!” 15 The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.

Jesus shows us how to make the dead rise. The same faith Jesus used to raise this man from the dead resides within us (John 14:12).

We not only have the ability to raise people from the dead, but we can raise situations and circumstances from the dead. We may have a dream that’s been sitting on the shelves of our minds for the past 10 years. Reignite that dream and tell it to get up. It may seem like we have a life-less marriage. Let’s use our faith and declare life, love, and joy within our marriage. We may have become complacent in where we are and we’re not accomplishing our goals. We may need to tell ourselves to get up and do what God has called us to do.

With faith in God, all things are possible including bringing things from death to life (Mark 9:23). Let’s use that faith and tell every dead situation in our lives to get up!
