Cornelius stared at [the angel] in terror. "What is it, sir?" he asked the angel.
And the angel replied, "Your prayers and gifts to the poor have been received by God as an offering! Now send some men to Joppa, and summon a man named Simon Peter. He is staying with Simon, a tanner who lives near the seashore."
O God, forgive me for the times I've ignored or missed your direction for my life because I doubted how I received the message. Open my heart to hear your truth and respond to your divine direction in my life when I receive it. I ask the Holy Spirit to help me recognize and follow your guidance rather than my selfish desires and restless impatience. I need your help to obey promptly. I want not only to seek and find you, but also to know, understand, and follow you. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
Unstoppable! is a one-year devotional guide through the book of Acts. Each devotional consists of a scripture passage, a reflection and a prayer. The reflection opens up the day's scripture and shows how it challenges one to live for Jesus.
Unstoppable! is written by Phil Ware.
