It’s a matter of His timing, so stop worrying!
It’s a matter of His timing, so stop worrying! That third day is coming!
“A man by the name of Lazarus was sick in the village of Bethany. He had two sisters, Mary and Martha. This was the same Mary who later poured perfume on the Lord’s head and wiped his feet with her hair. The sisters sent a message to the Lord and told him that his good friend Lazarus was sick.
When Jesus heard this, he said, “His sickness won’t end in death. It will bring glory to God and his Son.”
Jesus loved Martha and her sister and brother. But he stayed where he was for two more days. Then he said to his disciples, “Now we will go back to Judea,”” John 11:1-5 (CEV).
All sickness comes from the curse but some that seems stubborn may be because God is waiting to bring healing when He can get the most glory out of your life! This also applies to hard situations in our lives. He waited two more days after being told about Lazarus’s His friend’s sickness.
Yes, He waited until there was no more possible hope for him except RESURRECTION POWER! There was even a bigger picture than Lazarus and His sisters. This miracle would eventually stir up the Jewish leaders against Him to fulfill His destiny of dying for our sins…. Sometimes there is a bigger picture for greater purposes!
You see, sometimes what seems like a hopeless situation is only God setting up a miracle so that He can be glorified and so that His bigger picture can be fulfilled in your life and the lives of those that this miracle will touch….
Yes, for many the second day has passed but watch out because the third day is coming and it will Glorify God when it does!
It may look like all hope is gone but it is a set up for a resurrection!
God is not a man!
My God is not a man…. He is GOD!
He does more than our minds can comprehend, in ways that are past natural understanding!
I don’t have to apologize for what He does to accomplish His will in the earth. If it takes a miracle, sign, or a wonder to get men’s attention He is not confined to natural ways!
If He were, then He wouldn’t be God now would He?
You haven’t been disqualified!
You haven’t been disqualified…. Your mess is a test that will cause Him to be glorified!
“For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!],” 2 Corinthians 4:17 AMPC.
