176. “Are there not twelve hours of daylight?” (John 11:9).
When you walk in the light of God’s will, you do not stumble. You are headed for your destiny, even when others cannot understand the path you take. When you stay focused on the direction given by the Holy Spirit, the purposes of God will unfold around you. Here, Jesus’ disciples are concerned for His safety when He announces a return to Judea. But they are seeing through the lens of the world around them. They are accurate in interpreting the situation, but not able to see the light that is guiding Jesus’ steps. He is walking where the Spirit is leading and He will arrive in time for God’s purposes, even though some will feel He is late and others will feel He is doomed.
