Daily in Your Presence - Sept. 18

Day 262


Jesus warned them sternly,

"See that no one knows about this."

Matthew 9:30

My child, I know you grow impatient sometimes with the delays in your life. You long to know the future, and how you fit in. Trust Me implicitly. Just as there is a time for every season and every activity under heaven, there is a right time for you. I exercised cautiousness in order for God's perfect plan to evolve. Would you settle for anything less than My best for you? Don't get in a hurry. Time is on My side.

Just like that blind man whose eyes were opened, I'd cry out, "I was blind, and now I see!"  But You exercised cautiousness, Lord, so no one would interfere with Your Father's plan. You knew the right time for the butterfly to emerge from the cocoon. You never let ego or pride sway You from Your task. Instead, You waited for Your Father's instructions. You are so wise, Lord.


How you handle today will determine what you are tomorrow.
