2 John 9–Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the truth of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.
We love to run ahead. Even as little children we race ahead of our parents and have to be reminded to come back. So often, we do the same with God. We don’t want to wait or go His pace, so we race ahead, trying to find our way on our own. When we do that, we are not following Christ’s teachings or obeying God. We must learn to wait on Him and walk with Him, not race ahead.
Father, You know where to go and You know the best pace to get there. I will walk with You and not try to run ahead of You. I will follow Your teachings and seek to obey You.
