John 16:4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
Our Savior told the Apostles certain things concerning His ministry when He had dtermined the time was right. Our desire to know what the Lord has planned for our lives means very little to that Divine timeline which exists with the Creator Himself.
We may plan and plot a course of action, even asking for divine guidance in our endeavors, but unless GOD wills it, those actions generally end in failure.
We need to read Scripture, earnestly pray in faith, and consider every option when considering what we think the Lord wants us to do so we do not end our attempt in futility.
The Lord will reveal to us what is needed at the proper moment & not before.
