Daily in Your Presence - Sept. 21

Day 265


The Jews were amazed and asked,

"How did this man get such learning without having studied?"

John 7:15

My child, all the degrees in the world will not make you more like Me. But I have given you the mind of Christ, and I expect you to use that mind to its fullest capacity. Meditate on My words daily. Others were astounded at My intelligence because I spoke My Father's words. When your time comes to speak, trust Me. Don't rely on your own intelligence, or you will fail every time. Open your mouth, and I will fill it with My words.

Those who listened to Your words found no Ph.D. following Your name. You were taught at the knee of Your Father. You spoke not Your own words, but the words of God. Lord, I praise You for Your intelligence.


Lord, teach us to open the doors of our minds, and shut the doors of our mouths.
