I am glad

Imagine Jesus loved Lazarus and his sisters a lot. So, He wanted to truly show how much they mattered to Him, so He waited a couple of days. A couple of days in a person's health matter and yet Jesus waited. He waited until He felt death happened and He loved them. Delays are sometimes a good thing God provides to show His greatness, don't you think? Or perhaps to show His perfect timing and desires for our life?

Jesus wanted everybody to realize God's glory and power His friends, Mary, Martha and Lazarus and everybody else as well. He wanted their to be no doubt. He wanted Lazarus to have been gone for awhile, not a moment, not near death...gone. Had He been with Lazarus ~ perhaps He couldn't have allowed Him to suffer, but for our sakes He stayed away. He wanted all to see God's glory and believe! He wanted the power of the overcoming of death to speak to all, so the longer in the tomb the more others would believe.

Indeed Jesus loved all of us. He suffered with His friends...He felt their pain...He probably weeped a little due to the sisters thinking perhaps that He had to be with them to prevent this or to overcome this..and they were strong supporters, but He had to teach them as well through bringing Lazarus back. Continually we humans fall short, but never ever does Jesus! Jesus continually teaches of us of His love for us. Continually He showed God's glory for our Sake! Amazing love how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me! Indeed, over and over Jesus shows His mighty love for all of us.

Thank you for loving me so much!

Sweet blessings,

Debbie, I am trying to look at our delay today as a part of God's timing. Your words written here this morning are a message for me, I am sure. Thank you.
