Key Scriptures

“Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died....” John 11:22 NIV

Two Things To Remember When Waiting On God:

  1. God’s delays are not necessarily God’s denials.
  2. If God always met your expectations, He’d never have the opportunity to exceed them.

“With God, a waiting season is never a wasted season.”

“The scene of your greatest disappointment may be the setting of your greatest miracle.”

“Mary and Martha wanted a healing—Jesus wanted a resurrection.”
