Trustworthy Ways (August 2014)
14" x 24"
Scripture: John 11:17-37
Lazarus’ sisters were mourning and Martha tells Jesus that had he come sooner her brother would not have died. What is interesting is that we read in the verses before that Jesus waited to go to Lazarus’ home when He heard he was sick. Instead He waits so that His power can be revealed. Many times God’s ways don’t look like what we think they should. He sometimes allows difficult circumstances into our lives so we are ready to surrender to His control over our lives and realize our need for a Savior. Many times we don’t understand why we are in the struggles we are in, but that is where faith and trust come in to play and we must believe that God loves us and has us in His hands and that His ways are worth trusting.
In this scripture we read of Jesus going to the home of Lazarus who had just died.
