Today some of us begin a journey through the book of Acts. Visit the Worship Resources page and you’ll find the guide and info under prayer and devotion. Anyone is welcome to join!
Studying together, while physically distanced will be new for many of us, but as we continue to navigate these unchartered waters of lockdown, I’ve been minded to ‘just go for it’ and learn along the way. We’ll see where God takes!
As part of the daily rhythm I’ve suggested some pointers for daily reflection:
Some Pointers to help Daily Reflection
- What verse stands out to you?
- Read it again, chew on the words…
- What message might you be hearing today?
- What is God saying to you through today’s chapter?
- Write it down. Pray about it. Come back to it later.
- Where may God be speaking to the church today through the passage?
- Make a note of it. Share it with someone else from church.
I won’t post on here every day, but for day 1 I thought I would share briefly my reflections.
What verse stands out?
For me, it was 1:7 ‘It is not for you to know the time or period’.
A lot of life at the moment feels like waiting, waiting for lockdown to ease, waiting for the next change to come, waiting for an idea of how much longer we’ll be physically distanced from one another. I don’t know the time or period.
What is God saying to me?
I feel God saying “Don’t worry about tomorrow, I’ve got you”. Be patient and embrace TODAY – don’t worry about tomorrow for now, by my Spirit I will provide the strength and resource you need for each day. Trust me.
Where may God be speaking to the church today
As they wait for the time God has promised will one day come, the believers pray (1:14, 24). In uncertain waiting, it was to the act of prayer that the disciples turned. Perhaps that’s the greatest and power powerful action God’s people can make right now.
Share your reflections
Why not read Acts 1 and reflect for yourself, and share your thoughts in the comments below. How is God speaking to you today?
