Verse of the day
But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.
Often, in our interactions with God, we find the supernatural life to be so exciting that it only feels natural to let the world know about the things we experience. Truth is exciting to those who love God, and in this excitement of finding Truth, we are easily tempted to tell, to teach others what we find. In fact, we may even feel guilty when we do not find the opportunity to tell.
As beautiful as this may often seem, sometimes God’s dealings in our lives; the learnings, revelations, and experiences we have aren’t exactly meant to be taught as soon as they are received. The primary purpose of the Truth we receive, and of our experiences in God is to have us fashioned according to His purposes and not to have us teach others. So, when we receive Truth, we should meditate, live and practice it before we consider telling. When we then teach or share this with others, we do so with assurance and authority gotten from the knowledge of our experiences, and not just faith in what we heard or read.
Therefore, when we find God working in us, we may need to keep these things in our heart and let patience have her perfect work in us. This doesn’t nullify the need to speak of God’s goodness, but wisdom must be applied in knowing what, how and when to be silent or vocal about our experiences with God.

Father, I receive wisdom from You to know when to share or be quiet about my experiences in You.
