An earthquake and an opportunity
Acts 16: 30 “What can I do to be saved?” As I read this story of the jailer in Philippi, the earthquake, and the chance that Paul and Silas had to escape…hey, they could have thought, “God sent an earthquake to free us..it must be God’s will for us to leave…” I am struck with the idea that they stayed in an uncomfortable place, to be used by God. God did much more when they decided to stay – many were converted because of their choice to stay…and they were still released in the end.
Lord, Help me to be so in tune with your will for me that I move when you want me to. I want to know your direction throughout the day so that I can be used in ways I would have never imagined.
