We do not always get what we want, and getting what we want is not always the best solution to the problem. Life is fair and fair has 2 sides. When we earn joy, that is good, when we receive suffering, that too is good for us as we became traines to be stronger.
Martha plead Jesus to heal Lazarus. His reply wasn’t quite understood by the women. But He understood their pain and their worry, and helped them anyway. But the lesson is that even if Lazarus had continued his journey to the place of silent wait, it would still bring some good into the women’s life as they will learn to accept reality’s cruel hand and also grew stronger in their mentality.
By this Jesus is glorified and His death on the crosa would not be in vain as His death motivated us to not be scared of it and to live a guiltless life.
John 11:4 When Jesus heard this, he said, “This sickness will not lead to death, but to God’s glory, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”
