Who God Is
Peter Tan-Chi once said that what you think about God is the most important thing in your life. I realized it’s true. Even when difficult times arise, a person who truly knows God will never be shaken.
1. God is the God of the now – In John 11:17-44, we can read about Lazarus’ death and resurrection. Even when Jesus heard that his friend Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days. When he reached Judea, Lazarus’ place, Lazarus was already dead. Upon meeting Jesus, Martha, one of His beloved friends, said: “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”
Jesus said: “Your brother will rise again.” And Martha thought he was talking about the resurrection. But Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, proving that whatever situation you’re in, if you believe according to His will, it will come to pass.
