God's Time

October 2, 2010

The life of Jesus. Read Today:  Mary comes to Jesus; John 11:30-37

John 11:37 (King James Version (1769))
37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

God delays things sometimes. When He does, we, who cannot see the big picture, get impatient with Him.  These people think that Jesus was supposed to have healed His friend.  Why if He healed others could he not have taken care of His own friend.  The answer is, I do not know.  No one can know.  

In the instant world that we live in we want instant answers as well.  But God is not like that.  We do not get what we want when we want it.  We would get so sure of ourselves that we were the ones doing it.  Some times it takes time to get things done.  God’s time!

Read for next time:  Jesus comes to the tomb; John 11:38
