The Holy Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and walk along beside the carriage.”Philip ran over and heard the man reading from the prophet Isaiah. Philip asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?” The man replied, “How can I, unless someone instructs me?” And he urged Philip to come up into the carriage and sit with him.
Insight - Living a life where you are led by the Spirit often leads to unexpected and providential conversations! The assignments that God gives us do not always make sense, but we can have confidence that he is working behind the scenes in the lives of people that he is calling us to reach out to. Phillip was obedient to the Holy Spirit’s prompting and as a result he was able to tell the story of the gospel and explain who Jesus was to a Ethiopian high level official who said YES to Jesus!
Prayer - Jesus, today as you prepare people’s hearts ahead of time, help me to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s voice, I want to be ready to explain the story of what you have done in my life to those you allow me to encounter today! In your name, Amen.
