Daily Devotional “In the Lord’s Presence”

When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables…”
Today’s Scripture speaks of a time when a large crowd gathered around the Lord, listening to him speak about the parable of the sower.
After Jesus was done, you can imagine most people went home perplexed. Yes, he had told a fascinating story but—what did it really mean? But verse 10, says “When Jesus was alone, the twelve disciples and the others asked him about the parable.
And he told them, ‘The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you….’” And there, away from the clamor of the crowd, he revealed profound truths to them.
Some had just walked away unsatisfied. But others drew near determined to understand in a deeper way.
My friend, don’t be the one who is quick to leave the Lord’s presence. When you don’t understand something, hang around after everyone else has gone. Crowd in close to Jesus. Let him teach you the secrets of the kingdom.
Lord, I don’t want to miss anything you have for me. Don’t let me lose interest or drift away before you have finished speaking to me.
Don’t let me become impatient or discouraged as I wait on you for perspective and deeper Understanding. When you are revealing secrets to others, Lord, tell me too!
