But … You Don’t Need It Now!

S. O. A. P.

Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!

S-cripture:

John 16:12

“I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.”

O-bservation:

Jesus made this statement during a long discourse to His disciples. Part of this, the “Priestly Prayer of Jesus” to His Father, is offered in John 17. But one statement that He made is good for all of us to hear and know right NOW. Jesus completely knows the future. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. What He said was … “I’m not going to lay everything on you at one time. You could not handle it.”

A-pplication:

I’m thinking right now of this adventure in which I am still fully engaged. It’s called LIFE. There have been so many times that I begged for answers to future events that either the Lord wouldn’t tell me or those in authority over me would not share. In every instance, if I had known what was to come it would have ceased to be an adventure. Because I would have quit before I started. I’m pretty sure I couldn’t have handled that much information at one time. If you have been begging God to tell you what’s around the corner, you can be sure He will give it in time. “But … You Don’t Need It Now!”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

Thanks for another new day of ADVENTURE. Thanks also that You’re still trusting me to stay on the journey with You! Amen
