When Jesus Delays
Feb 4, 2020 550
If you learn to wait on God, he will always give you something better than you have ever hoped for.
Waiting can be such a pain! Very late one night—one o’clock in the morning, actually—my plane was due to leave India for Australia, but it was delayed for hours. I was so tired, that, as I waited in line at the air[port, I fell asleep standing up against the wall!
One day, some messengers came to Jesus, to tell him that his friend Lazarus was very sick. But Jesus didn’t go right away. He waited. And back at Lazarus’ home, his family waited anxiously.
In fact, Jesus waited for so long, that by the time he got there, Lazarus had already died.
But it was worth the wait, because Jesus did something better than heal Lazarus from his sickness, he raised him from the dead! Yes, waiting’s hard. But here’s the truth. If you learn to wait on God, he will always give you something better than you have ever hoped for.
