“Each day Jesus was teaching at the temple, and each evening he went out to spend the night on the hill called the Mount of Olives, and all the people came early in the morning to hear him at the temple.” Luke 21:37-38.
Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading; Exodus 1-2, Psalm 88, and Luke 21.
Jesus wasn’t resting on the Mount of Olives, He was connecting to God his Father.
Because of the connectedness Jesus had with God, He had the words to draw early AM crowds.
I want to be in a place where I, too, can acquire the words/thoughts of God even if it is early in the morning when I’ll get them.
Jesus spoke/taught like no one else. He had stories. He had insights and He spoke the truth. He was worth listening to.
I’ve been writing lately about starting days with God. What better way to begin a day?
I must be loaded up with God at the outset of every day. The immersion (in Him) must be complete. The “immersion” must be so total that I don’t deviate from Him in the day ahead.
“Lord, more truths about starting days fully attached to You. There is no getting around it. There is no Plan B. I surrender right now to You. I cling to You from this moment forward. I love You, Lord.”
I must seek Him when I wake up.
