Trust and Wait


 
"Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”  Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”  But He was speaking of the temple of His body.  Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said." - John 2:19-22

Some of the things the disciples saw and heard from Jesus they didn't immediately understand.  His words regarding rebuilding the temple in three days are an example.  Yet, they continued to follow.  Why?  Because they had built a relationship with Him in which they understood that He had integrity, was honest, could be trusted, and that they had a true friend in Him. 
We disciples today sometimes encounter the same thing.  We don't understand what Jesus does, plans, or allows into our life.  Yet, because of our intimate relationship, we know we don't have to understand it all.  We just have to trust Him, and wait.
