Read Matthew 17
The disciples headed back to the region of Galilee. Jesus again told them that he would be handed over to men to be killed, but on the third day he would rise from the dead.
Again, the disciples must have been fixed only on the death part. The man who stilled the waves and walked on water said he would rise from the dead and the disciples knew only grief.
He had told them what would happen before and each time they rejected God’s way for their own understanding.
Why did Jesus have to tell his disciples again and again? Why do we need to read Proverbs 3:5-6 over and over?
Our own expectations are sometimes our biggest enemy. Trust that God’s way is better.
