“When Delays Are A Blessing”

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“And therefore will the Lord wait, that He may be gracious unto you.” Isaiah 30:18

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Many times the Lord will deliberately delay that He may be gracious to us.

When Lazarus fell sick, his family sent for Jesus. Instead of coming immediately, Jesus waited (see John 11:1-46). He held back until Lazarus was dead. And if you read John 11:15, He said, “I’m glad”— because He had something greater in mind.

God waited four thousand years to send the Lord Jesus Christ after He made that promise. But Galatians 4:4 says He came in the fullness of time. Never late, never ahead of time, never in a hurry.

ACTION POINT:
Are you in a waiting game…praying days, weeks, months, even years, for something and God hasn’t answered? Be still and know that in the fullness of time, your request will be answered.

Five Great Truths:

1.) God didn’t HAVE to send His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth to die for our sins, but He did anyway…because He loves us;

2.) Christ didn’t HAVE to let the Roman Soldiers nail Him to the Cross, but He did anyway…because He loves us;

3.) God’s Grace is sufficient;

4.) John 14:6 says that “…Christ is The Way, The Truth and The Life; No one comes to The Father except through Him”;

5.) You CANNOT get to Heaven by just being a good person; you MUST confess that you are a sinner in need of a Savior and that Savior MUST be Jesus Christ. You MUST ask forgiveness of your sins, ask Christ into your heart, be obedient to His Commands and give Him control of your life.
