Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died." John 11:32 NKJV

Jesus raising His friend Lazarus from the dead is one of His greatest, most memorable miracles. It powerfully demonstrates God’s power over death. It also teaches you a great lesson regarding His timing in doing the things He does.

When Lazarus’s sister Mary first met Jesus after her brother’s death, she voiced a measure of faith while protesting that if He’d only come sooner, Lazarus would still be alive. When you read this account, you can almost feel her grief at the loss of her brother. You can imagine her disappointment that Jesus waited so long before coming.

In the end, Mary and her sister, Martha, saw God glorified when Jesus brought their brother back to life. Not only that, many others witnessed this miracle and came to faith in Him.

Are you facing a situation where you need a miracle, but think God has failed you? If so, hold to your faith and wait. It’s possible that the Lord has planned an even greater miracle, one that benefits you, glorifies God, and brings others to faith.

Prayer: Sovereign God, I know that You timing is not always my timing. Please sustain my faith as I wait for You to intervene on my behalf in a way only You can.
