Something Seemed So Wrong, But Turned Out Right

Sometimes God does something that seems so unloving to you, but it is really the best thing for you…

John 11:6 “So when Jesus heard that Lazarus was sick, He then stayed two days longer in the place where He was.” Jesus was informed that His good friend was deathly sick, but instead of going to him, He decided to just hang out for two days, allowing him to die before He went to visit him. Wow! Does this seem totally unloving to you from the surface? Don’t go to your friend to save his life, but let him die instead.

God’s plans are far beyond what we can understand. Though a situation may look or feel bleak like everything is going to be over, the truth of God’s Word states otherwise for those who are following Jesus according to His will. Lazarus was brought back to life to bring glory to Jesus. The situation you are in will also bring glory to Jesus if you trust that the Lord is only good and that He will bring about good for all those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.

Rest in the promises of His Word, not in what you may see or feel.

Jesus, Himself, raised from the dead, defeating death for all of those who put their trust in Him.
