Life gets busy and weird and chaotic. Yesterday I read half of my day’s scriptures and poof my quiet time was up for the morning. Fast forward through a crazy Wednesday and I went to bed asking for some grace. I was so blessed by some time with friends last night, so while I missed a few chapters in Exodus (and my blog post), I know God gave me just what I needed with some great fellowship.
Seems now a days you can’t get on social media without somebody proclaiming a leader is a great enemy of our country or perhaps our next best thing. How do I feel? God is always our highest King. He’s in control and he reigns. I’m so thankful for that!! I’m thankful we live in a peaceful transition in our freedom. I respect the authority whether or not I agree with our president, whoever it may be. I won’t share my political views here; you can make a huge sigh! I pray and try to keep my opinions to myself. The reason this comes up is because God has challenged me to pray for more “Sauls”.
Tonight I read Acts 9. In all of its mysterious glory! I love Acts 9. If you didn’t know, Saul here is actually also Paul. I didn’t know this as a newcomer to the Bible a few years ago and it totally blew (and still does) my mind that God chose HIM to be St. Paul… writer of many of our beloved letters in the New Testimony. A sufferer for Christ. Wow.
Here is my verse
Acts 9: 1-2 (NIV)
Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest 2 and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem.
I am leaving you with that. I encourage you to go and Read Acts 9. May you be blessed.
You use us in despite if our flaws. In despite of not being anything worthy. Thank you Lord.
In Jesus’ Name,
