21 At that very moment, Jesus overflowed with joy from the Holy Spirit and said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you’ve hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and shown them to babies. Indeed, Father, this brings you happiness. 22 My Father has handed all things over to me. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wants to reveal him.” 23 Turning to the disciples, he said privately, “Happy are the eyes that see what you see. 24 I assure you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see and hear what you hear, but they didn’t.” (Luke 10:21-24, CEB)
I praise you because you’ve hidden these things? Really shouldn’t we be praising because things have been made clear?
But sometimes we need people to be in the dark, to not understand, to have to trust.
We all need to trust God and know that we will not have all of the answers and that is simply because we do not have the ability to understand everything the way God does.
When those who think they know everything have to rely on someone else is when we truly see how much we need God.
So don’t think you can do this alone, you can’t. We all need God.
