Prayer & Perseverance

Day 1 of 6 • This day’s reading


This devotional was written by Julie- Missionary in France

On the whole, we are busy people. We’ve got things to do, people to see, places to be and depending on the culture in which you find yourself, we don’t have much time for interruption. Yet, the Lord wants to interrupt our plans to do the good works He has prepared for us to do. How do we respond? I admit that I’m not always ready or willing to be interrupted. I either pass by not seeing the opportunity he’s put in front of me, or I deliberately choose to ignore it because I have too many other “important” things to do. 

Our passage today is the beginning of a story in the book of Acts where two disciples are interrupted in their daily activities, and it leads to miracles and powerful testimonies. As you read, think about a time when the Lord interrupted your plans because He had something better for you to do. What was your reaction, and what did He teach you through that situation?
