So if God gave them the same gift he gave us who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could stand in God’s way?” Acts 11:1-18
I wonder how often we get in God’s way? I know that as we go about our daily lives and routines, we likely don’t pause as often as we should to either ask what God is doing or see what the Holy Spirit is up to in our lives. We may not have visions like Peter did but surely God is at work in all that we do. Where are the places that you can be open to what God is doing in your life and in the lives of those around us. Peter needed to be convinced three times on several separate occasions that God was working with him, sometimes we might need that convincing too. Look to those around you, and to God’s still, small voice, or booming call to see what’s next for you in this world, and remember it is for the sake of the gospel.
P.S. Let’s stop getting in God’s way and do the work together!
