John 8: 1-8
1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
How often do we find ourselves in a situation where we are uncertain what our response should be to a challenge that we are facing? In this verse, Jesus teaches us that if we will simply pause for a moment, the Holy Spirit is faithful to supply an answer. When we humbly submit our will and wait on Godís wisdom, we will always receive an appropriate response. Once it is given, we must be willing to put whatever the Holy Spirit instructs us to do into action because faith without works is dead. Today, if you have a storm that you are in, donít panic. Instead, calmly ask God for help because he is faithful, willing, and about to meet all of our needs.
Thought of the Day: Have I taken the time to slow down and listen for Godís instructions today?
