So when the apostles came together, they put this question to Jesus. “Master,” they said, “is this the time when you are going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”
“It’s not your business to know about times and dates,” he replied. “The father has placed all that under his own direct authority. What will happen, though, is that you will receive power when the holy spirit comes upon you. Then you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judaea and Samaria, and to the very ends of the earth.”
They all gave themselves single-heartedly to prayer, with the women, including Mary, Jesus’ mother, and his brothers.
It’s a waste of time trying to figure out the Lord’s timetable, His incomprehensible plans for the universe.
It is not a waste of time to give yourself single-heartedly to prayer and waiting upon the filling of the Holy Spirit.
