This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Ephesians 1:11 (ESV)
Today I am encouraging you to become more aware of how God is working in your life.
Recently we’ve been talking about navigating through challenging times—that daily grind. What I’m also beginning to appreciate more and more is that despite what I can see in my day to day life, God always has something greater at work. This was surely the case with Stephen, from the book of Acts.
Stephen stood before Jewish leaders and gave them a lengthy address about the presence and glory of God dating all the way back to the days of Abraham and Moses. However, as he began to speak more truth to power and tell the leaders how they rejected the Messiah, they chose to stone him to death.
Word spread of Stephen’s murder, and many Christian believers fled Jerusalem, fearing for their own lives. Initially, they were frightened and could not see any good in Stephen’s death. However, as these believers disseminated around the world, they also began to spread the Gospel. In other words, the Gospel was able to reach corners of the globe that it likely would not have if this tragic sequence of events had not occurred.
Through Stephen’s story, we see that God always has something greater at work. The same is true for you today; the key is becoming more intimately aware of how He is working in your life. Tune into the Blues to Blessings YouTube channel today as I share my own experience with becoming more aware. Before you do, remember these words: “In him…[we have] been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to…his will.” Ephesians 1:11 (ESV)
