We experienced a time change earlier this month. Most of us enjoyed the extra hour of sleep that following Sunday morning!
What did you do with that extra hour?
In Acts 8 we read about how God used Philip with an Ethiopian leader who was traveling from Jerusalem to Gaza. The Ethiopian eunuch was reading from Isaiah, and Philip- prompted to intercede by the Holy Spirit- asked if he understood what was written in the scripture. The Ethiopian leader asked for help, and Philip engaged him in study.
“Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus. And as they were going along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptized?”
And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him.” Acts 8:35-36, 38
It was a gentle nudge by the Holy Spirit that led Philip to engage someone…and the results brought another soul to Jesus.
It was unplanned and it didn’t take long.
I’m easily distracted during the holidays. There’s always something that’s keeping me from focusing on what’s truly important.
My prayer this week is to slow down and listen…listen to what the Spirit is whispering.
It may only take an hour.
Please let me know how I may pray for you. God bless and Happy Thanksgiving.
