John 13:37 ” Peter asked, ‘Lord, why can’t I follow You now? I will lay down my life for You.’ “

Jesus had just told the Disciples that where He was going, they could not follow at that time.  But impulsive Peter didn’t want to wait.  Waiting on the Lord can be maddening at times.  We think we know what to do…and so impatiently we attempt to steer the ship in that direction…only to do more harm than good.  When God says, “Not now,” we need to be able to rest in it, knowing that His timing is perfect.  And while we wait…we should strive to find delight in the delay and praise in the postponement…for it’s a chance to learn firsthand what patience and perseverance are all about.
