Your delay could be your miracle!

March 1, 2021

“Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when He heard that he was sick, he stayed two more days in the place where He was…Now Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.” Jesus said to her, ‘Your brother will rise again.’ ” John 11:5 & 21-23, NKJV.

Jesus was on his way to raise Lazarus from the dead, but he decided to spend two more days where He was, and it appeared to be a delay in his coming. However, they witnessed the power of Jesus, who, in four days, still raised Lazarus from the dead. This was beyond the three days Jews believed a man’s spirit remained near their body. They had an even greater testimony of what Jesus could do. What seemed like a delay, turned out to be their miracle.

I’m learning more and more to not lose hope because of a delay. It’s wise to rejoice and thank God for delays. In my own life, we had been looking for a house. We found one and put in our bid. It was accepted, and everything with our buying experience was going smoothly and according to plan. However, the lender we were working with came back and told us they needed us to do more things regarding my credit. We weren’t ready to buy what we were first told, and it was disappointing. Yet, we agreed God must have something better, and what God has for us is for us.We took a little more to work on my credit, and we found that the very same house was still on the market. This time, we were able to get a lower interest rate, and all the closing costs paid. Glory to God!!

Whatever it may be in your life that you desire, don’t fret over a delay. What God has for you, know that it is for you. Don’t get discouraged if what God told you doesn’t happen when you think it should, or when you want it to. You may want to go ahead and obtain it, but always receive godly counsel, even if it appears it will delay what you really desire. Your blessing could be your delay in disguise, and your delay could be your miracle!

Prayer: Father, I praise You, and I thank You for all my delays. Help me not to be in a hurry. I want Your best. What You have for me, is for me. Lead me Holy Spirit, and may I receive all the godly counsel You send me. Help me to respond right to any delays, because it may very well be my blessing in disguise. My delay could be Your protection and my miracle. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Study: John 11:1-44
