John 13:7 – Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
Yesterday Bradley and I took our kitten Peaches for her third and final vaccination. As you can imagine, she’s not a big fan of the vets. She tried her best to resist coming out of her carrier, making the best use of her sharp claws (I have a few battle wounds). But Peaches in that moment didn’t understand that these vaccinations are to help her live a better and longer life.
As followers of Christ, we go through seasons just like this – seasons of uncertainty. We question what Jesus is doing in our lives and sometimes if He’s even there at all. We can’t see the bigger picture.
This is when it’s most important to trust God’s plan in our lives, despite what we can’t see or understand. In Romans is says that He works all things together for good. It might not seem like it at the time but those seasons of uncertainty are the seasons that strengthen our faith.
What God brings you to, He will bring you through.
