What answer do you give to a child who asks, ” Mum, but why can’t Jesus heal me right now? That was a question to which I had no answers holed up in our hotel room at 3 am in the middle of a snow storm three years ago.
Now there’s nothing worse than seeing your child so ill. The helplessness I experienced was indescribable, when even the surgeon had advised us to keep praying.
Talk about a test of faith, but to the glory of God, we went through and overcame!
The Lord often waits till things are hopeless. He waited till Lazarus was dead and buried. He waited in the fiery furnace for the Hebrew boys and for Daniel in the lions den.
We can’t avoid the test, but when it comes will we pass it? Don’t forget that crossing the Red Sea is also part of the journey!
