God became flesh and walked among us. He has given us a glimpse of what He was going away to do and what is to come. What we must do is stay close to Jesus through prayer and meditation on His scriptures.
1″Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God[a]; trust also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Part of being patient is knowing God is in control. This passage shows us that God has it all taken care of and we stay close to Jesus we don’t need to worry about what will come in the future. When we rest in Christ we can know that we have a future. He is going to prepare a place for us in heaven so who cares what happens here on Earth.
I know it is a hard concept to grasp with all the trouble we see in the world, but it pales in comparison when we rely on him and him alone. Maybe a loss is meant to draw us closer to God. We are still trying to understand why my wife’s mother passed away so soon last year, but we know that God has a reason and his reason is beyond our reasons.
In Romans, Paul writes that all things work to good for those who love the Lord. Give your burden to him and let him comfort you. He has it all under control and he will come back for us someday.
