Throughout many of our life experiences, we often encounter the unexpected. Unexpected outcomes may be a surprise to us, but we can live with confidence that they are no surprise to God. Relying on God’s guidance throughout our life can help us to overcome challenges and take advantage of new opportunities to the glory to God.
God can do amazing things through ordinary people who are empowered by the Holy Spirit. In the book of Acts, the Holy Spirit was given to all believers and the church was born. The church is God's chosen instrument in the world for sharing the good news about Jesus Christ. The book of Acts is all about the unhindered movement of God throughout the world as the gospel of Jesus Christ is proclaimed through the church. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the early church was an unstoppable movement that proclaimed the Kingdom of God and Jesus Christ as the only way to eternal life. Today, the church empowered by the Holy Spirit is called to continue God's redeeming work in the world by fulfilling God's mission of making Jesus known to the ends of the earth.
Challenge: When it comes to following God’s guidance, begin by obeying God’s will for your life as revealed in the Bible. Make sure to pay attention to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, and seek the wisdom and counsel of Godly people in your life. Yield your life to God, because going through life with God will always be better than going through life without God!
