...waiting on Jesus is a common experience for disciples. Sometimes we wait for direction. Sometimes we're stuck in a very hard place and wait for release. Sometimes we wait to understand his purposes. Sometimes we wait for his provision.
Jesus's timing and purposes are not always clear to us, though they are always best for us. So he wants our faith resting on the rock of his Word and not on the sand of our circumstance.
When you don't understand his ways, trust his Word.
~ Jon Bloom, Not By Sight, p. 126
