It is sometimes very confusing when God seems to wait in answering prayers, or even if it’s not in accordance with his will to answer our prayers in the way we expect. Many people were perplexed that Jesus waited when his beloved friend Lazarus was sick and ultimately died. However, even though it did not make sense for 4 days, Jesus declared this sickness was ultimately unto the glory of God. Just as with many circumstances in our lives, in hindsight we can see the glory of God even when we have to endure sufferings.
