Daily Word Of God

John 7:1-2, 10b, 25-26, 28-30

Jesus stayed in Galilee: he could not stay in Judaea, because the Jews were out to kill him. As the Jewish feast of Tabernacles drew near, Jesus went up as well, but quite privately, without drawing attention to himself. Meanwhile some of the people of Jerusalem were saying, ‘Isn’t this the man they want to kill? And here he is, speaking freely, and they have nothing to say to him! Can it be true the authorities have made up their minds that he is the Christ?’

Then, as Jesus taught in the Temple, he cried out: ‘Yes, you know me and you know where I came from. Yet I have not come of myself: no, there is one who sent me and I really come from him, and you do not know him, but I know him because I have come from him and it was he who sent me.’ They would have arrested him then, but because his time had not yet come no one laid a hand on him.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • “God’s Time” is a divine mystery. When the “time” was not right, Jesus avoided being captured and killed by His enemies.  But, when the “divine time” was “right” He surrendered without any resistance.


  • When you look at your life, can you see how and why things happened in “God’s time?”


  • Today, not yesterday, is “God’s time” for blessing you in a special way. So, get in touch with God’s Spirit and respond generously.
