Have you ever found yourself in the “place”
of being SO hungry to learn…
to grasp something
…that you find it hard to wait patiently for the understanding that can only come from the Lord?
There is a lesson, even in THIS place…
Jesus Christ, “The Great Teacher”, has a perfect “lesson plan” for each one of us. 📖☀️
He knows exactly what we need to learn,
and He knows exactly how and when we need to learn it.
what we want to know,
what we desire to grasp and understand—is not the main lesson that we really need at that time.
But how we can trust Him—He knows…
For He is
“The Great Teacher” ✍🏻 💡
“When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.” – Mark 6:34
And He has invited each of us to come to Him
and learn from Him directly.
But we must be willing to follow His “lesson plan.”

“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.

but deliver us from the evil one.”—Matthew 6:9-13

“I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you. I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught.”—John 14:26 MSG

therefore he instructs sinners in the way.

“How good you are to me!
When people turn to you, Yahweh,
they discover how easy you are to please—so faithful and true!

and lead them into the best decision.
Bring revelation-light that trains them in the truth.”—Psalm 25:8-9 TPT
“‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen.”—Matthew 28:19-20
Some of His lesson plans include “trial and error”…
Some include “failures” and He takes us through learning how to get back up and keep going…
Some lessons include a humbling process…
Some lessons involve learning to wait patiently—not going over here or there for the “answers” out of impatience, but waiting upon Him.
He is the truth and He is the way.
And His Spirit guides us into “all truth”
as we come to Him…
and we learn to wait expectantly
and to watch and listen quietly
and we look to see Him
in the midst of whatever kind of lesson we are in.
Can we LEARN to wait upon Him,
so that HE can teach us
using His perfect lesson plan?
Or will we attempt to bypass His process
and miss out
on learning from
The Greatest Teacher?
He wants to teach us in a way, that leads us closer to His heart. That we may KNOW Him…that we may know the Father, and that we may KNOW and UNDERSTAND His Word and His way.
We can trust Him.
Thank You, Lord. 💝 ☀️
