“Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick…So when Jesus heard that Lazarus was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was.”
Why didn’t Jesus rush to heal Lazarus? The Bible is clear that Jesus loved him, and we know He certainly had the power to do so. Yet, Jesus stayed where He was.
The answer is that there are times in our lives when God’s purpose must overcome His power. He has a plan and a purpose for each one of us, and His love for us stays steadfast to complete His perfect will in our lives. When you are faced with a difficult situation in your life, remember, the creator of the universe is faithful to complete the good work he began in you.
And that means sometimes His purpose must be more powerful than His power.
