Meditation Thought: “You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.” (Matthew 16:3)
“To learn to interpret the signs of the times – or to learn anything – you must recognize your present ignorance, and furthermore, desire to replace ignorance with knowledge. You must desire this to the point of acting. You must seek where the answers lie: the signs of the times are in My Word and My Spirit. My Spirit leads you to the Word, and My Word leads you to My Spirit. Both are necessary, for both are an integral part of every creation.
Sharpen every sense, physical, mental, spiritual, by concentrating on the development of the sense. ‘Decently and in order’ will aid you in coordination of your studies. Do not daydream about another subject as you are in the classroom, but focus on the subject you are to be learning at the moment. You have many talents and graces to be developed, and learning the signs of the times is included. You cannot skip over fundamentals to jump to the higher planes. You will be lost, confused and discouraged. Trust Me: I know your progress and your difficulties. Stop trying so hard. Relax, allow Me to place you in circumstances and to give you words to guide you. Stop reaching, and start receiving what is coming but you do not observe. Life is not a complicated as you try to make it. Simplify your life: trust Me to do the arranging of your study schedule and your work schedule and your ‘play’ schedule and your sharing schedule. Fret not any more about what is undone – but enjoy doing the activity of the moment, doing it as a sacrifice of praise to Me: for I will bless My people for faithfulness.”
