“Jesus wept” John 11:35
This is known to many to be the smallest verse in the Bible. The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) is written this way; “Jesus began to weep”.
With several troubles around the world, many people had fixed this thought on their heart that God does not exist, or God does not care. There are some who boldly keep asking ‘if God exist, why then does He allow this to happen to us?’
When you look at these people, you will clearly see their ignorant. They fail to look and see that most problems we have today are not from God BUT the handiwork of men, of the governments and of course the people themselves.
I want you to know that God is not the author of evil. He is for good and for the well-being of each and every one of us.
In the above verse, Jesus wept and He did because He loves Lazarus. Though Lazarus was confirmed dead and forgotten, Jesus Christ raised him from the dead.
Jesus wept because He cares about the well-being of Lazarus, because he wants to see Lazarus alive and not dead, because He is a compassionate God.
God does not find any job in our infirmity, or our illnesses. He is not happy that you are inflicted with cancer, asthma, epileptic, HIV, diabetes, barrenness, blindness, et cetera.
What God wants is your healing, your wholesomeness, your laughter, your happiness, your joy, and of course all that it takes for you to have sound health.
Do not reduce yourself to that mentality that God has abandoned you. That is just the lie that Satan wants you to believe.
God never abandon any one no matter how far you have strayed from Him. He is a covenant keeping-God and He cannot do anything outside of His promises. What God says He will do, He will surely do! Just be patient and DO NOT GIVE UP!
In your moment of need, hold on to God. He is concerned about you and He must fulfil your request. Keep up your faith; hold tight to God’s word.
He is a compassionate God and He will forever be!
