Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples. – Mk 4:34

There were many things Jesus did not explain to the general public. It was up to the disciples to get alone with Jesus and ask Him for an explanation. The same principle applies to you! Are there things you’re waiting for God to explain to you? Have you been searching the Scriptures, listening to podcasts and scouring youTube videos (i.e. using all available public resources) to find the direction and answers you need?

Get alone with God! When you make time for private prayer, He will explain all things to you. Nobody else – no matter how anointed – should be the expert in your situation. God’s desire is that you would be the expert in your own life. The answer you’re looking for is not more prophetic friends, a new church, or a conference across the country. Get alone with the God who made you and listen to His voice!


Father, help me to make more time for prayer. I confess that the most difficult thing in my life is to get alone with You. Help me to make the time I need to sit and listen to Your voice, in Jesus’ name!
