“I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t bear them now.” JOHN 16:12 (NLT)

_____________________________________________________________________________

I am teaching an online class during this Spring semester which begins today.  A high school student taking the course for dual credit has been emailing for days trying to get a good start. This is commendable. Having never done anything like this, he is not sure what is next. He is looking for the starting point and an outline of how this course works. 

Learning new things is enjoyable. It is something I try to do every day. However, there are times when my mind is so full that I cannot cram in one more fact or idea. There are times when fatigue settles in and stops forward progress. 

Go back to John 11 and read straight through to this point. The disciples had to be overwhelmed with all they had seen and heard. Jesus knew they were at the saturation point. Some of what he was telling them would not fully compute for them until after the resurrection and ascension. 

Jesus promised that the coming Holy Spirit would guide them into all truth (verse 13). Learning, growth, and development were ongoing. These men were not finished learning. There was much more to come. Now they had the outline. Next would come the details to fill in the empty spaces. 

You and I do not know it all. There is still more for us to learn in our walk with God. Today is a good day to say so. It is a good day to confess to our Father in heaven that there is much we do not understand. Tell him also that you are ready, willing, and eager to learn. 

Let’s see where that takes us.

I will ask our Father in heaven for more knowledge, wisdom, insight, and understanding.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Our Father, speak to my heart. Teach me. There is so much I want to know and so much more you want to teach me. I am ready, willing, and eager to learn. Increase me in knowledge, wisdom, insight, and understanding so that I may lead myself and others better. Grow my heart as you grow my mind. Amen.
