GOD'S PROVIDENCE IN DELAY(2)

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*

*GOD'S PROVIDENCE IN DELAY (2).*

*Scripture Treasure.*

John 11:11 *These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.*

*Insight and Highlight.*

No situation handed to God is permanently closed. Your situation is not dead but asleep.

*Scripture Commentaries.*

A famous quote goes: "Nothing is completely wrong, even a stopped clock is right twice a day".

We must live, believing, nothing will remain completely or permanently wrong with our destinies.

We go through challenges and there is no one without challenges.

No matter how careful you may be challenges will come. If they do not come your way, you will come its way through other people's neglect, carelessness or deliberate incursions.

We fight along bitter lines and battles, head up, shoulders back, chest out, full of all determination but end up overwhelmed but we can be sure God empowers us to overcome.

Jesus was told that Lazarus was sick. Jesus told his sisters that the sickness was not unto death. Jesus was expected by Mary and Martha to come quickly in order to save Lazarus but Jesus stayed back two days, John 11:1-6.

Lazarus was now dead (John 11:14) but Jesus said he was asleep (though dead) and He was going to wake him up (that is, raise from dead)

On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus was dead and had been in the tomb for four days (John 11:17).

Jesus raised Lazarus and he lived more years.

Whatever you are going through may be raging fiercely and the problems your challenges have created may be overwhelming.

Every opportunity around you appears dead to you but they are only asleep before Christ.

Though all appears to be dead, they will empowered to receive life this month, in Jesus name.

*Remorse corner.*

John 11:44 *"....And he that was dead came forth, ...:"*

*Call to Word action.*

John 11:45 *"Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go."*

*The Chistian clarion.*

There is providence in delay.

Until that situation is dead, it will not be empowered to resurrect.

*Prayer.*

Lord, let my delays receive attention.

Let dead opportunities receive resurrection, in Jesus name.

Good morning and a happy new month of August to you all.

This month, closed expectations will be opened, pending expectation will receive expedited attention.

*It is our month of EMPOWERMENT.*

God bless you.
