One of the perfect examples of God’s timing is in John, chapter 11. Lazarus was very sick and his sisters sent word to the Lord, “the one you love is sick.” Jesus heard this he said,” This sickness will not end in death.” When Jesus arrives, Lazarus had been in the tomb for four days. The sisters were upset with Jesus and said, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” They could not understand why he delayed coming. He gave them no explanation of his timing but proved he had a reason. He demonstrated his power over death and raised Lazarus from the dead. There is a song and it sums this up, “When God is four days late, He is still on time!!
Jesus said to her,” I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
