Testing the righteous


"Rav Huna said, citing R’ Eliezer son of R’ Yosi haGelili: Gd delays and raises the eyes of the righteous [in anticipation], and then reveals the reason to them. So, too, Gd said, “to the land that I will show you (Bereishit 12:1),” “upon one of the mountains I will identify for you (Bereishit 22:2),” “Call upon her the message that I will tell to you (Yonah 3:2),” “Go out to the valley, and there I will speak with you (Yechezkel 3:22).”"

(Midrash, Bereishit Rabbah 39:9)

Have a great day,
