Peter, not understanding the purpose of Jesus’ actions, resists Him initially. Like Peter, sometimes we resist what He wants to do or is doing in our lives because we do not understand His purpose. His response to Peter has meaning for us also, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.” (John 13:7). We can trust whatever He does in our lives, for whatever He does or allows is with a purpose and always for our good. We will not always understand but we must always trust Him. One day, whether on this earth or in eternity, He will make all things clear.
