Carmichael: a far better thing

Wednesday, June 12, 2013
    “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.”
    —John 11:21-23 (NIV)
    Do not forget that the answer to many prayers is “Wait,” or sometimes, “No, not that, but something else, which when you see Me, you will know was a far better thing.”
    ... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), Edges of His Ways [1955], London: SPCK, 1957, p. 113 (see the book)
    See also John 11:21-23; Ps. 5:3; 22:1-2; 80:4; 106:15; Matt. 26:39; Luke 12:13-14; Acts 3:2-6; 2 Cor. 12:7-9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I entrust my prayers to You.
