DAY 20 TUESDAY: JULY 2021

THERE IS NO LATENESS WITH GOD!

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23).

In God’s timing and diary, there is nothing like lateness in life. Whatever God does is appropriate in the time of life. In the opening text, the Bible says that Jesus Christ said to him thus, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that there is absolutely no lateness with God in life. When you have faith in God as a Christian, nothing in life can be too late and impossible with you in life. Therefore, God wants you to walk with Him by faith so that your ways can please Him in life. Life that is devoid of faith in God is absolutely useless and frustrating in life forever.

Let us take Abraham as a case study in the Bible. God called and promised to bless and make him the father of all nations when he was 75 years old in life. But this promise never came until he was 100 years old in life. That is why the Bible says in Romans 4:19, “And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb.” Therefore, it was indeed the absolute faith in God that renewed and brought life back into the dead situations of Abraham and Sarah. Indeed, with God there is absolutely nothing like lateness because life begins and ends with Him forever.

Similar scenario was recorded in the Bible during the time of Jesus Christ when Lazarus was dead and buried for four days. That is the reason why the Bible says in John 11:17, “So when Jesus came, He found that he had been in the tomb four days.” In fact, it was absolute faith in God that brought back Lazarus who was dead and buried for four days into life. Jesus Christ demonstrated here that with God no condition can be too late in life. He gave order that the stone be rolled away and raised up Lazarus from the dead (John 11:43-44). Take note of the fact that there is no lateness with God in life forever.

Daily Tip: There is no lateness in God’s timing and diary, and with God no condition can be too late in life. Whatever He does is absolutely appropriate in the time of life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Shall a child be born to a man who is one hundred years old? And shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child? (Genesis 17:17).
