PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Mark 4:30-34
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“When he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.” (Mark 4:34)
In my own life I have found this to be true as well.
It is when I spend time alone with Jesus hat He explains things to me.
What I mean is, I find I learn a lot in my devotional time with Jesus.
I take a passage, like this one, and I pray through it with Jesus.
I will ask questions, I will think through possible answers.
The Lord will bring thoughts to mind, or help me to see something in it.
Or He reminds me of a similar situation in my life, or passage in the bible.
As I journal these thoughts with the Lord, things become clear, lights turn on.
My assumption is that this is something everyone can experience.
“When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth.” (John 16:13)
The Spirit of Jesus is with us, and is guiding and teaching us.
But time alone with Jesus, and/or with a few others, is prime teaching time.
As you spend time with Jesus today, see what He tells you about this mustard seed.
If you don’t, you may miss out on His explaining everything to you.
Lord, protect me from distractions in my time alone with You. Speak to me, that I may understand what this mustard seed means for me.
