These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of Him, and that they had done these things to Him.” JOHN 12:16

This verse arrives after Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem, and like many events relating to Jesus it was prophesied in the old testament (Zechariah 9:9). In verse sixteen John tells us that the disciples were not aware of the significance of these events as prophesied, or any events in Jesus’ ministry. It was only afterwards that they realised the reasoning of all these events.

We should not judge the disciples too harshly regarding this. We follow God and trust Him to provide our daily needs, yet sometimes we cannot see His hand or purpose in events. In these moments of uncertainty we are called to have faith and trust God, to be assured that He is at work in our life. In the fullness of time we are able to look back and see with fresh eyes what God has done for us.

Therefore dear reader remember those times in the past when God provided for you, be assured He will do it again. Rest in Him, trust Him until He shows you His purpose!

Dear Father God, sometimes I cannot see how you are working in my life, but I know you are a loving Father who provides for my every need. Therefore I trust you in my daily life and know that you will show me your provision at the right time. I trust your guiding hand in my life. Amen. .
