Scripture Reading: John 11: 1-44


“And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.” (John 11: 43)

In our Focal Scripture, Jesus commanded Lazarus to come forth. Here was a man who was dead and had been buried in a cave for four days; here was a man who ought to be stinking already; here was a man who was at a point where his case was closed by the standards of men, but the Jesus who is Chief Orchestrator of Joyful Sounds showed up and commanded a reversal. Jesus gave an instruction and Lazarus came forth from the grave.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: the instruction for your Joyful Sounds has been given, and you are coming out of every grave you have been in; you are coming out of every pit where men have locked you up; you are coming out of every challenge that wants to end your destiny; you are coming out of every grave that wants to keep your potentials and potentialities under lock and key; you are coming out of the pit of obscurity.

The orders have been given; your time in darkness is over; your tenure in the place of covering is over; your time in pain is over; your time in lack is over; your time in defeat is over; your time in irrelevance is over. This is your new season: it’s your time to shine brighter than you have ever done; it’s your time to rise above the ashes of defeat and coast in victory; it’s your time to be what God wants you to be.

When Jehovah is involved, there is always a destiny to fulfill and an assignment to accomplish. When God is for you, your potentials cannot and should not end in the grave. When God is at the core of your life’s existence, whatever wants to confine you will be burnt to ashes by the fire of God. When God is interested in your destiny like Jesus was interested in Lazarus, no grave has the authority to hold you back.

Step out of that grave already; step out of confinement; step out of that environment of decay; step out of that environment that wants to complete what the devil started. Step out of the boundaries the enemy set for you; step out now!


The instruction for my Joyful Sounds has been given; I step out of the grave, in Jesus’ name!
