"Behold, as the eyes of servants look upon the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait
upon the Lord our God."
(PSALM 123:2, KJV)
It may be that sometimes the Master’s will seems completely unpalatable to us, as Peter and the others felt on hearing Jesus’ hard teaching about drinking His blood and eating His flesh. Yet as His servants, we will say along with Peter, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68). Anywhere else we would turn will leave us unfulfilled and wandering, for He is our Master, come what may. The meaning of Jesus’ words dawned on Peter and the disciples later. It may be like that for us, too, as we learn to wait upon the Lord.
BECAUSE WE LOVE THE MASTER, WE TRUST HIM IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES; EVEN IF WE ARE SLOW ON THE UPTAKE, WE WILL WANT TO PLEASE HIM.
