“When Mary arrived and saw Jesus, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died.” (John 11:32, NLT)

“When Jesus arrived, Mary thought He was too late. Her beloved brother Lazarus was dead.

Yet, the fact is that Jesus is always right on time.

Lazarus had been dead four days. And yet Jesus asked that the stone blocking the entrance to the tomb be moved. An unusual request. But that’s because something unusual was about to happen.

The Savior had shown up and given life back to a dead man.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5). Looking for a miracle in your life? Hold on. Jesus is never late.

Prayer: Jesus, thank You for this reminder that Your power and timing are always perfect. Amen.
