Look at the contrast:
- Repent and Rest
- No, we will flee on horses
- You are left as a flag on a mountain top and an flag on a hill
It is especially important because most of us, at least me, are more interested in schemes of escape than learning to wait on The Lord. Why? We are a lot like Peter. We have a bias for action. Do not just stand there, waiting, do something, anything, sitting still, waiting is not productive, it is lazy.
But waiting and trusting is what The Lord commands. He does not need our schemes. He needs and commands our trust.
