Less is more

RE Verse reading–Acts 1:1-8 (day five)  “So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, ‘Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?’  He said to them, ‘It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority; but you will receive power. . .and you shall be my witnesses.’ ” (vs 6-8)  Sometimes what we want is not what we need.  It is a blindness often reflected in our prayers.  The disciples wanted KNOWLEDGE (particularly as it related to the kingdom being restored).  Jesus knew that they needed POWER FOR SIGNIFICANT SERVICE.  Hmmmm. . .  Much that is ahead is being hidden from us.  The Father does not allow us to know it so that we may daily depend on the Holy Spirit and His missional plans.  It is not what we want but more than we can imagine.  God is good.  Less is more.
