Memory Verse:
John 11:40
Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”

“God’s Timing is Always Perfect!” Every person is tempted to doubt God when he/she does not understand what is happening or know how God is working in a given situation. This is a normal reaction and God understands, yet God always requires Christ-Followers to trust Him no matter what the circumstances. In this sermon, the congregation of Thomas Road Baptist Church studies John Chapter 11 in order to discover how God is always in control even when we may not understand what God is doing. Listen, learn, and be encouraged that “God’s Timing is Always Perfect!”

John 11:3
…Two sisters sent a message to Jesus telling him, “Lord, your dear friendis very sick…”

John 11:4
But when Jesus heard about it he said, “Lazarus’s sickness will not end in death.”

John 11:5b

John 11:3, 5-6
