If you had been here

Then when Mary was come where Jesus was and saw him, she fell down at his feet saying to him 'Lord, if thou has been here my brother had not died'
Jesus said unto her 'Said I not unto thee if thou wouldest believe,  thou shouldest see the glory of God? John 11:32,40
Jesus could have gone to heal Lazarus immediately they told him he was sick but he waited till he was dead before setting out.
Now the Pharisees and Saducees will have nothing to mock about the miracles of Jesus. Lazarus was completely dead and even buried so it was impossible for them to say 'oh maybe he wasn't really sick'
Testimony is sweetest when the case becomes impossible with man as it will be glaring for all eyes to see that your turn around is by the finger of God
That was why Jesus said to Mary, Lazarus sister 'all you need do is believe me, as you will see God come through for you.
It's easy to have faith when all is going according to plan but when we are severely tested, will we still trust Him  and say ' I know my redeemer liveth and he will do what he promised to do'
I know my redeemer liveth and He will do what he promised me. What about you?
