SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY- Acts 10:9
Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, “Ananias.” And he said, “Here I am, Lord.” (Acts 10:9 NKJV)
Thought of the day
Ananias, a disciple of Jesus in the city of Damascus, was thrust into God’s storyline all because he decided to pray that day. Be encouraged that prayer positions us to be used by God in amazing ways!
Questions to ponder
-Was there ever a time God spoke to you and gave you specific instructions in a time of prayer?
-Are you taking time to listen to the voice of the Lord in your personal times with Him?
-When can you get alone with Jesus today and simply listen for His voice? Are you willing to obey Him when He speaks?
My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
