John 11:20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming,she went out to meet him:but Mary stayed at home. Martha said to Jesus, “If you had been here,Lord my brother would not have died! In many of our circumstances we’re just like Martha,Lord if you had been here or Lord do you still care about me.So many times we forget to Rest in the Lord until he is ready to come and handle the problem! We get all upset and then Fear & Doubt buddy up and the attack is on,and the more we look at the problem the bigger it gets! But there is a place of peace,and as I’ve said many times that place is getting our minds back on Jesus. For he promised us as well as he did Martha,that he cares and he is the answer! Not only at the end but right now Jesus loves us and he cares about all we’re going through. And I’ve also learned that the waiting process is not all about us, but as Jesus showed Martha and others there in verse 15 But for your sake I am glad that I was not with him,so you will believe. When we struggle and go through our ups & downs people are also watching us,and as Jesus brings us through others faith is build up,and the unbelievers are also watching and many are being encouraged to trust Jesus as their Saviour. So just as God promised it’s all working for our good,God has considered everything & everybody when dealing with us! “What A Mighty God We Have”!!
HOLD ON YOUR HELP IS COMING,KEEP BELIEVING.
