Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.” So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days, and then he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”John 11:1-3, 6-7 NIV

Whatever obstacles God may allow to come between your prayers and His answer are permitted by Him to test your faith, patience and love for God. However, you can overcome the test when you hold on to God and believe that His Word is true regardless of the circumstances and the conditions. Thereafter, He will make the answer known.

The seemingly delay is not synonymous to denial, your breakthrough will come just at the break of dawn. Don’t be afraid anymore, hold on to Jesus, He will soon arrive to make everything beautiful for you again. Have a joyous week.

Your brother,
