God’s Delay on Answering Prayers is no Delay

I had just left my house and was on my way to a walk-in lab for some extensive blood tests the new doctor I began seeing required. I talked to the Lord about my level of frustration, concern, and anxiety over my health issues. As I always do when I drive, I turned on Moody Radio Station KMBI 107.9.  Within a few minutes a new program came on. I’m not even sure which program it was or who the person was, but he was talking about the death of Lazarus, and his sisters’ frustration that Jesus had showed up too late to heal their dying brother.

 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” John 11:21

I was surprised by what came on next.  The man on the radio said these words:

“Jesus Christ’s delay in answering your prayers, whether it be the E.R., a pathology report, or misdiagnosis; is no delay.”

Stunned, I wasn’t sure that I heard right.  How well those words fit my predicament and conversation with God just minutes before.  Thankfully, the man repeated them.

“Jesus Christ’s delay in answering your prayers, whether it be

the E.R., a pathology report, or misdiagnosis; is no delay.”

I had heard right after all!  God was talking at me and to me through this radio program.  Had I left the house earlier or even few a minutes later, I would have missed this amazing encounter with God. I wrote the words down right away so I would not forget them.

Friends, Isn’t God amazing!!

God is always at work around us.  It is up to us to keep our eyes and ears open to see His work.
