Better than you could’ve imagined…

DAILY VERSE

“And for your sake, I’m glad I wasn’t there, because now you have another opportunity to see who I am so that you will learn to trust in me. Come, let’s go and see him.”

John 11:15

DEVOTION

The story of Lazarus embodies a complete illustration of trials, with a behind the scenes look at what God is doing. 

Jesus receives word that Lazarus was dying. Though Lazarus is His close friend, Jesus finishes what He’s doing before moving on, and Lazarus dies. 

Putting yourself in Mary’s shoes perfectly embodies how we feel in the midst of trials. But Jesus shows up, resurrects Lazarus, and explains the greater good these trials were meant for — so more would believe. 

A God who loves you to the deepest depths will always work the trials you experience into something far better than you could’ve imagined.
