Will You Wait? (Part Two)

Just how special the disciples must have felt associating with royalty. Yet, unknown to them, it was also going to be their seeming worst of times. A rude shock awaited them. In the midst of their euphoria, God burst their bubble. They had missed a vital part of the story. They had missed a vital part of the plan. A sacrificial lamb was needed.

The way to the throne is the way of the cross. No cross, no elevation and no coronation. [Luke 24:13-35]
“Then Jesus said to them, “You foolish people! You find it so hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures. Wasn’t it clearly predicted that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering his glory?” Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke 24:25-27, NLT)
Has God ever had to burst your bubble? Have you been so confident you know how God will do a thing, yet you missed out on a vital part of the plan? How did it make you feel? Did you learn anything from such? Did it tell you He is God and you are not? Did it teach you to trust and rest in His hands, rather than be presumptuous? Did you learn to wait for Him?

Are you waiting for/on Him? He is God and we are not.
