“The disciples did not understand any of this. Its meaning was hidden from them, and they did not know what he was talking about.”
Sometimes we read of or are impressed with something that is beyond our understanding. Most often than not, we take it as if it’s some mystery case that is for us to solve. And so, as if our fact-finding prowess is enough, we dig into that which confuses us without considering the fact that yes, we will find Him when we seek Him with all of our heart (Jeremiah 29:13), but sometimes, seeking Him means waiting on Him with our hearts fixed on the hope that He will reveal Himself to us in His appointed time.
When you don’t understand, maybe it’s because you’re not supposed to just yet. Timing is everything and His timing is always perfect!
