afraid to ask



Luke 9:42-45

Luk 9:42 As the boy was approaching, the demon threw him to the ground and shook him with convulsions. But Jesus reprimanded the unclean spirit, healed the boy, and gave him back to his father.
Luk 9:43 Then they were all stunned by the mighty power of God. But while the entire crowd was amazed at everything Jesus was doing, he said to his disciples,
Luk 9:44 “Take these words to heart, because the Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men.”
Luk 9:45 But they did not understand this statement; its meaning had been hidden from them, so that they could not grasp it. Yet they were afraid to ask him about this statement.

afraid to ask

This boy’s deliverance was something that everyone (except the demon himself) could celebrate. But the disciples had not category in their personal theologies to put news of Jesus’ betrayal. God has a wonderful plan for this world, and they will all like some of it. But there are other aspects of God’s plan that even his own people are afraid to ask about.

LORD, give us the courage to trust your plan, even when we are confused about why some things happen.
