“So although Jesus loved Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, he stayed where he was for the next two days. Finally, he said to his disciples, ‘Let’s go back to Judea.'” (John 11:5-7).
I wonder what Jesus did those two days waiting for Lazarus to die. I wonder if He cared or knew the impact it would have. Well, actually we did because Jesus wept (John 11:35). Skip ahead to the Last Supper (Matthew 26). His disciples had no idea what was about to happen. Even though Jesus spelled it out for them the next three days would be the most horrific and painful moments of their lives.
It’s like that in our lives.
Dying equals dying.
Jesus wept means He wept.
The disciples were devastated and so are we when God asks us to wait. To abide. Remain.
Last month we celebrated Easter. Take some time to reflect on a time(s) in your life when God asked you to do something you didn’t understand. Be honest with Him and seek His reconciliation. There is no past sin or broken piece that He can’t fix. Thank Him in advance for what He already did on the cross and wait in eager anticipation of His healing in Your life!
