My name is Dwayne Peterkin. I was re-baptized April 2011 and since then I have been doing my best to obey the Lord Jesus Christ and do his will. In this sinful world IT IS NOT EASY to stand up for God. You'll be tested, friendships may fall by the wayside, old habits will fade away. I hope that as I share my Faith Walk, others are encouraged on theirs. I hope you join me on this journey.

God’s Timing…

laz

 

My Devotion this morning spoke of Lazarus.  Lazarus was sick and near dead.  So Lazarus’ sisters Mary and Martha came to Jesus and said “Lord, the one you love is sick.”4When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” 5Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days, 7and then he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.” John 11:3-7

When He arrived Martha  said to Jesus “Lord if you had been here my brother would not have died” (v. 21) 

Jesus loved Lazarus as well as Mary and Martha.  Notice that as much as He loved them, he did not rush to go save him.  He had a plan.  Jesus purposely delayed going so that Lazarus would die, (and be dead and stinking for that matter.)  He had to make sure that this was the case so that His miracle could be performed.

My brothers and sisters, whatever you are going through now, God allows it so that His miracles can be performed.  Things may be dead and stinking, but like Mary, Martha, and Lazarus, he loves us.  He may be delaying His work but He has not forgotten us or forsaken us.

Let us not lose faith in our Lord and Savior or be like Martha and wonder where God is in the midst of our troubles but let us trust in Him ALWAYS and wait in confidence for Him to work His miracles in our lives!

Until later, I’m just tryingtobeamanofgod!

Blessings!
