Keep Believing

Lazarus, a ‘beloved’ friend of Jesus, was on his dying bed. Mary & Martha, Lazarus’ sisters, sent word to Jesus to come heal him. But by the time Jesus finally arrived, Lazarus was already dead and buried for ‘four days’ (John 11). Seemingly, God, was four days late! Mary rebuked Jesus on his arrival – ‘If you had been here, my brother will still be alive…’- her legitimate expression of disappointment.

However, here’s the amazing part- Jesus responds “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?” He then goes to Lazarus’ tomb and calls the dead man back to life. Hallelujah!

Here’s the moral: nothing is ever too difficult for the Lord. He might be four days late, but He will surely be on time- God’s time. Sounds trite, but will forever hold true – You only need to hold on, and keep believing…

Every blessing, with prayers…
