- At first his disciples didn’t understand all this (John 12:16).
Such words could easily be written in every generation of every collection of Christ followers. There’s much we don’t understand. A life of faith doesn’t demand understanding, we don’t typically grasp the greater picture of what God is doing in our lives. But often such clarification does come in time. When we look back over the journey we’ve traversed with God, we begin to see the wisdom of His plan for us. We also see the beauty of His grace that covers us and adds beauty where our impatience and struggle for control steered us off course. But in the moment, we can see so little. That makes faith all the more important. We just hold His hand and keep walking.
