John 13:7  Jesus replied, “You do not understand what I am doing now, but you will understand after these things.”

When I was a small child and one of my parents would tell me to do something or even not do something I would always ask why.  Their usual answer was “Because I told you so.”  Even though God has said we are to become as little children He was not talking about our demand to know why on many things.  He wants us to obey His Word through trust, not through understanding.  He wants us to accept in faith His direction and His protection in our walk on this earth.  We need to understand what He tells us but not the why.  The why is not necessary for obedience.  When we walk through a trial quite often we walk out with an understanding as to what God wanted us to learn in that trial.  We need the trusts of a little trial to be glad, to consider it joy, when God gives us an opportunity to grow deeper, learn more and understand more of His love and power.  Our question is are we willing to give up or demand to know why before we walk it out in obedience and trust?  He promises in the right time we will understand.
