Jesus loved Lazarus just as He loves us! Can you imagine the restraint Jesus had to use when He got that message from Martha and Mary remember Jesus was flesh and blood like us.When He hears our prayers I believe He has to restrain Himself, because He’s all about doing His Father’s will.
For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.
John 6:38 NLT
But if we wait on Him we’ll get the answer that’s best for our situation, His timing is so different from ours and we do have problems waiting.
