Sometimes ministry gets really hard… Rejection can take a toll on you. Jesus had just experienced massive rejection in region of Galilee. He deals with it the best way anyone can… he confirms his perspective. Jesus knows that all things are in the Father’s control. Likewise, it is not up to us how to people respond to our glorification of the Savior. Instead, we need to realize our Father is in control.
25 At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that jyou have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; 26 yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. 27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”
