Is God ever late? I know the Sunday School answer. But I also know that, at times, it feels like God is late. We need Him now. We can’t see Him work. He must be late. If you can relate, remember the story of one of Jesus’ best friends.
“When Jesus heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days.” John 11:5
You probably know the rest of the story. Jesus arrived after Lazarus had died. Jesus raised Him from the dead. Story over. But the lessons learned weren’t. They would be important for us, even today. Jesus waited to move. I don’t know all the reasons why. But I do know that He isn’t bound by time, so He is never late. And He didn’t simply want to heal his friend. He raised him from the dead. That’s the exclamation point to the story. And the point of your story today…Keep waiting and believing. He knows. He’s working. And He’s always on time to accomplish His plans. – Sandi
