Time tries to be an intimidator. It tries to intimidate you and tell you that God is not going to do what he said he was going to do. I mean look at how much time has passed, there’s no way God can do it, is what the enemy says. In contrast the Lord says, FAITH TRUMPS TIME. It doesn’t matter if it’s been four days, four weeks, four months, four years, 40 years, or 400 years. We know that according to John 11 after four days Lazarus was raised from the dead. We know Jesus said four months and then the harvest. We remember the Israelites spent 40 years in the wilderness. And who can forget Israel spending 400 years in Egypt.
Time tries to intimidate but FAITH TRUMPS TIME. Don’t be intimidated by time. If God said he was going to do it, even if he has to raise the dead He will keep His word. Jesus told Martha, did I not tell you if you believe you will see the glory of God. Remember Lazarus. FAITH TRUMPS TIME, don’t be intimidated by time.
John 11:17-27 “On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. Now Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem, and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home.
“Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “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 to her, “Your brother will rise again.”
Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
