Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Corinthians 4:5 (KJV); Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.
In yesterday’s devotion, we learnt an important principle in judging matters, which is to hear God on an issue before passing any form of judgement.
Today, I wish to open our eyes to another principle when it comes to judgement and it is to never judge things before time.
Sometimes, God requires you to keep your opinion to yourself. You do not need to have a say on everything and everyone.
It has been said that silence is golden. Your silence might be misunderstood but it will never be misquoted.
The sands of time change many things. In fact, the person you saw yesterday evening may not be the same person you will see this morning because when they woke up, they were a different person, with a new perspective and view of life.
Some things die or are made alive in the womb of time. Your part is to pray, observe and learn, not to judge.
This wisdom will preserve you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Some things die or are made alive in the womb of time. Your part is to pray, observe and learn, not to judge.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this word. This is wisdom to keep me for and in the years ahead. Because I never judge anything before time, I am always perfectly aligned to the timing of the spirit. This knowledge works in me to know not only what to say in any given situation but when to say it, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
