It’s Never Too Late
I want us to look at someone in the Bible who was beyond human help. His name – Lazarus. His problem – he was dead. I would say that is a problem. He has now been dead for 4 days. Jesus comes to his grave and says, “Move the stone from his tomb.” They do and Jesus prays, ““Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this on account of the people standing around, that they may believe that you sent me” (John 11:41-42).
Then Jesus looks to the grave and says, “Lazarus, Come out.” The Bible declares, “The man who was dead came out.” Let me tell you this: “If you are not dead than God is not done.”
You know what I have discovered over the years? It’s never too late with God!!! No matter what you have going on … no matter how bad it is … no matter how difficult life is … hear this today – it is never too late with God.
Lazarus was dead. God still said not too late. No one reading this is dead. So that means you’re a step ahead of Lazarus. God has a plan for you. It does not matter how impossible the task ahead of you looks! It does not matter how many opportunities you have missed. God has not counted you out … don’t count yourself out!
Keep pushing forward … don’t look back … trust God’s timing and his plan! Its never too late for God!
Sickness is not too big. Divorce is not too large. Family problems are not going to hold you back. Your past is not going to restrain you. Its never too late for God!
