WAITING ON GOD BEYOND EXPECTED TIME

THIS TEXT IS ONE THAT TRULY DEFINES THE MANY MIRICLES JESUS HAD PERFORMED IN THE LATTER PART OF HIS MINISTRY, NEVERTHELESS; THE MIRICLE HE HAD PERFORMED IN THIS EVENT WAS TO BE AN IMPRESSION UPON THE DECIPLES.

JOHN 11:4

NOTICE: WHEN JESUS HAD GOTTEN NOTICE OF LAZARUS’S SICKNESS HE DID NOT HASTEN TO HEAL HIM. HE HAD TO IMPLEMENT A PLAN TO MAKE THE UNBELIEVERS - BELIEVE

MAKE THE DOUBTERS - DOUBT NO MORE.

EVEN AMONGST YOU THERE IS SOME ONE WHO DOUBTS THE POWER OF GOD. DOESN’T BELIEVE IN THE MIRICLES.

NO MATTER HOW MUCH EVIDENCE YOU SUBMITT TO THEM THEY CANNOT BELIEVE.

OH, BUT WHEN TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS HAVE VISITED FOR A WHILE AND THEY HAVE HAD TO LEAN ON THEIR FAITH, THEY ARE MORE INCLINED TO RECOCIDER.

IN APRIL 2000, MY FATHER WAS MURDERED BY THE HANDS OF LOST SOULS, IN OAKDALE, LOUISIANA. MY FAITH WAS ON TRIAL AND I HAD TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT I DID NOT GIVE VENT TO THE DEVIL. THE POLICE HAD NO SUSPECTS, NO WITNESSES, AND NO EVIDENCE JUST A UNSOLVED MURDER.

BUT I HAD TO TRUST IN GOD WITH THIS KNOWING THAT THERE IS NOTHING UNKNOWN TO GOD. I SPOKE WITH MY UNCLE AFTER I HA D DISCOVERED MY FATHER DEAD AND HIS WORDS WERE " THIS IS LOUISIANA THEY WILL NEVER FIND OUT WHO DONE THIS" REBUKING SUCH STATEMENT I HAD TO STAND ON WHAT GOD WOULD HAVE ME TO SPEAK, I TOLD HIM " BY MIDNIGHT THEY WILL HAVE SOLVED THIS MURDER " AND AS I SPOKE IS HOW IT ENDED. ACCORDING TO OUR FAITH WE CAN RECEIVE OR ACHIEVE WHATEVER GOD WOULD HAVE FOR US.

WAITING ON GOD BEYOND EXPECTED TIME

FAITH - BY FAITH WE ARE SAVED

BELIEF - BY BELIEF WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE

UNBELIEF - BY UNBELIEF WE ARE CONDEMNED

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. SAID " FAITH IS DEFINED AS A LIVING, DARING CONFIDENCE IN GOD’S GRACE.

MIRICLES OF JESUS

1) WATER TO WINE (CANA)

2) MADE THE BLIND SEE (BETHSADIA)

3) MADE THE LAME WALK (CAPERNAUM)

4) MADE THE STORM STILL (GALILEE)

5) HEALED THE WOMAN WITH THE ISSUE OF BLOOD (CAPERNAUM)

6) LAZARUS RAISED FROM THE DEAD (BETHANY)

WHEN JESUS RAISED LAZARUS FROM THE DEAD IT WAS NOT TO BE PRETENTIOUS OR ARROGANT. BUT THAT THROUGH THE FATHER

THEY MAYBE GLOIFIED AND THAT THE ONES WHO STOOD BY COULD WOULD BELIEVE ON THE SON OF MAN (JESUS).

BIBLICALLY: FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR AND THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.

WAITING ON GOD BEYOND EXPECTED TIME

WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE WAYS OF GOD ARE NOT OUR WAYS NOR HIS THOUGHTS OUR THOUGHTS.

WE SAY THAT GOD IS AN ONTIME GOD BUT ARE WE WILLING TO WAIT OUT THE PROCESS OF GOD TO MAKE ITERCESSION FOR US DO WE HAVE THE FAITH TO BELIEVE THAT GOD IS A GOD THAT HE SHOULD NOT LIE.

WHERE IS OUR FAITH?

WHERE IS OUR BELIEF?

THROUGH TRIALS ARE WE WILLING TO WAIT ON GOD BEYOND EXPECTED TIME?

THROUGH ERROR ARE WE WILLING TO WAIT ON GOD BEYOND EXPECTED TIME?

THROUGH TRAGEDY ARE WE WILLING TO WAIT ON GOD BEYOND EXPECTED TIME?
