TOPIC: Delay Is Never Denial

TEXTJohn 11:1-17(NKJV)

The text today tells us the story of Lazarus and his sisters, Mary and Martha. It further describes that Jesus loved all three of them. Unfortunately, He received news that Lazarus was sick. However, Jesus deliberately stayed two days more and we learn that Lazarus eventually ‘slept’ (v.11).

It was at that point Jesus now decided to go visit Lazarus to wake him up. One would wonder why Jesus would deliberately stay back two extra days knowing that Lazarus would die. Jesus’ response when He got the news gives us an assurance, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God…” Though He delayed two days, Jesus was going to turn that terrible situation to the glory of God.

As Christians, we often feel God is not quick to answer some prayers. We easily look for other alternatives if God does not respond immediately. We forget that God can turn every situation around to glorify His name and to bring us more blessings. We should continually hold on to God’s unchanging grace, even when things seem so bad. He will surely use you to glorify His name to those around you.

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I rest on your unchanging grace, help me to keep looking unto you in every situation as the author and finisher of my faith. Amen.
