How often have you felt that way? That you prayed, you sought open doors, you begged God to get there and to work before it was too late; yet, no matter how hard you tried nothing happened. God failed you...or did he?
What happened next in the story is something Martha never expected.
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Read the rest of Hebrews 11 to see what faith did for people in the bible. Sometimes I like to do that just to remind myself of what God has done and still can do!
"...but with God all things are possible."
The only things preventing God from working is us! And yes, it is much harder when it feels like he hasn't come through on time. But remember, God is not on our time table. he sees a much bigger picture than we could ever imagine!
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord."
Keep believing that God's Got This and that he is one time...maybe not our time...his timing is perfect.
