Yesterday I was listening to music. When I woke up it was time to make lunch. The song on at the time was by Greater Vision and is titled “I Know A Man Who Can”. We are needing a miracle in my family right now. We are watching as one of our dear members slowly transitions down in health and upward toward Heaven. This is a painful process. I have not been able to make it to the hospital for several days due to schedules and shift changes.
With this in mind I was listening to this song; which is a favorite of mine, and some thoughts came to my mind. Let me share some of these thoughts.
I. I Know A Man Who Can – heal the broken heart.
Look at John 20:15, “Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.” For the most part those who followed Jesus believed He was who He said He was. Then they watched Him be crucified and then buried. How would you feel? You and I would be crushed. We would be disillusioned. There is an entire gamut of feelings associated with what these people had and were going through.
Then Mary in this state goes to the tomb of Jesus. She sees a man that she thinks is the gardener. When she speaks to this Person she finds out it is Jesus. Then all the feelings fade away in sight. The disillusionment drops off like rain off a duck’s back. All the wrong feelings disappear at the revelation of who Jesus really is to Mary.
Now, let’s make this personal. I don’t know what is happening or not happening in your life. I can tell you this for sure. If you will come to faith in Jesus Christ the trials of life will probably not get better. What changes is your perspective on the problems and your response should change also. This will make all the difference in the world. You see, “I Know A Man Who Can.” Take your needs and cares to Him and let Him work in your life.
So, how are you doing?
