John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it come to pass, ye might believe. ~ In this part of scripture, Jesus, right before his death, is talking to the disciples about things to come so that when they happen, they don’t misread what is taking place. Jesus prepares them with the truth. He encourages each one of them that they each have a destiny, a dwelling place in the kingdom of God that no one else can fill. He also reveals seasons that each one will experience. There are seasons where it seems that Jesus is walking with them each step of the way, but then there are also seasons where he doesn’t seem to be anywhere around. But he later tells them that if they will hold fast to what they’ve learned, if they will keep his commandments, he and his father would come unto them, abide with them, and manifest themselves to them. Staying in the word of God is key. We can have confidence that Jesus is always with us. We don’t have to fear when he seems to be absent; when it seems that we can’t hear him or see him. It’s in those times that he is preparing habitation places for us. It’s in times where you feel left alone that he is actually preparing you for your habitation place. If we will hold fast to those truths, when we encounter seasons like this, it will help us to navigate the through these times encouraged and filled with faith, joy, and excitement about what God is doing. Having faith and trusting him regardless of what it ‘feels like’ is how we walk consistently in this world; we walk as the sons of God. John 14:29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it come to pass, ye might believe.
