I Don't have time for this pain!

Before you get frustrated that your pain has interrupted your life, remember, God has a purpose:
IN your pain
THROUGH your pain

In John 11 we hear the story of a much needed response from Jesus.

BUT, He delayed because His purpose was much bigger than His friends thought.

Take a look-

'Now a man was ill, Lazarus from Bethany,a the village of Mary and her sister Martha.
Mary was the one who had anointed the Lord with perfumed oil and dried his feet with her hair; it was her brother Lazarus who was ill.
So the sisters sent word to him, saying, “Master, the one you love is ill.”
When Jesus heard this he said,
"This illness is not to end in death, but is for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” (WOW)
Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
So when he heard that he was ill, he remained for two days in the place where he was.'

Jesus didn't rush there to save him... 

His purpose was to wait, and let Lazarus suffer and die...
To save more people through what He was about to do. Praise Jesus that He doesn't always say yes in that moment to our pleas for help. His plan is
BIGGER and BETTER than we could ever imagine. His delays are never a waste.
