“What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this” (John 13:7).

If you want to know the deeds of God, you need to have the eyes of the spirit as well as the ears that are kept open.

In a particular place, the pastor of a church died suddenly. He was a pious person and one who loved God. A heart disease attacked him unexpectedly. His wife and children grieved and cried profusely. They lamented and asked, ‘Why should God do this for us? Why should He take our father?” and so on.

Some days went by. One day, when the wife and the children were crying in a room along with the relatives, the brightness of glory shined there all of a sudden. The dead brother, along with numerous angels, appeared in that room. It was the same face and the same kind look and with a smile, he asked his wife and children, “Why are you crying? Thank God. Praise Him. For the Lord is good and His mercy is everlasting.” Later, when the angels moved out, he also went away with them. This incident changed their lives. They were immensely comforted. They began to praise and worship God.

Paul the Apostle writes, “But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus” (I Thessalonians 4:13, 14). Death is not the end and it is just a rest. Our God is the resurrection and the life. He, who believes Him shall live even after death (John 11:25).

It is essential that you should know the preaching and the promises of God in the scripture highlighting one’s situation after death. The death or the hell or the grave could not have control over Jesus Christ. The Jewish and the Roman warriors could not seal His grave or protect His body. Jesus Christ resurrected. So, you too have the hope of resurrection.

Dear children of God, unexpected dangers may arise; accidents may come. What is the answer of God when your heart laments saying, why God should do this? His answer would be “What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.”

To meditate: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).
