Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 362

  1. “Lord, are you at this time…” (Acts 1:6).

If “why” isn’t the most common question among Christ’s followers, then “when” likely fills that top spot. The gap between God’s timing and our preference for whatever desired action is in focus is one of the most challenging components of faith. When will that faith become sight? We could applaud the disciples’ clear belief that Christ would, indeed, restore the kingdom. After all, they didn’t say “if” or “will you.” Just “when.” Faith waits. It’s the only way for us to demonstrate trust and dependence on God. His timing is perfect, but seldom preferred. That’s why “now” may be the most significant word God can utter toward us. It’s usually the word we’re most desperate to hear.
