August 8: Relocate
Scripture Lesson: Acts 8:26-40
On this date in 1957, Brooklyn Dodgers president Walter O’Malley made it official, announcing that the Dodgers would move to Los Angeles beginning with the next season.
Phillip was in the midst of a great awakening for the Lord in Samaria. Ministry was going great, and people were being reached for the Lord. Surprisingly, God told Phillip through an angel to go to a distant desert road. Phillip did not complain or remind God of the success he was seeing in Samaria: he just obeyed and went. On that road, he met an important man in the government of Ethiopia. Phillip witnessed to the man, who soon gave his heart to Jesus. Some scholars believe this event opened the door for the Gospel to be spread into Africa, all because Phillip was willing to go where God wanted him to go. Sometimes God may want to relocate us when we are most comfortable and enjoying success. God’s plans are perfect plans for our lives!
What happens when we follow God’s call?
What does it take for us to follow God’s call?
Would you be willing to follow God’s call even if it meant relocating?
May we all listen for the call of God in our lives and be willing to follow Him in faith wherever He may lead us!
