In prepping for several upcoming talks, unexpectedly Acts 1:1-8 is one of the focuses. Credit for this focus is due to our Thursday morning growth group discussion recently. Thought I’d share this simple outline since the majority of you missed that discussion.
- God is always at work. And it may be something I don’t understand…yet. (verses 1-3)
- God sees the big picture. And I don’t have to. (verses 4-5)
- God knows more than I do. And that’s why I can rest. (verses 6-7)
- God’s plan involves everybody. And so should mine. (verse 8)
This is a good thing to say, to admit, and to do it often.
The link above is to a recording of the song the FBCBradenton choir did this morning in church. And here’s why I say God is smarter than I am.
This song, Mercy Tree, was slated to be done before or on Easter. We weren’t ready at that point, so we rescheduled it for today. In my head, it seemed like it could come across as a little too late, repetitive, whatever. And even at rehearsal Wednesday night, I still wasn’t sure we should do it. But God showed up this morning.
Not only did He get the glory through this song, but unbeknownst to me, it spoke to our guest speaker and went right along with his message.
So thank you, God. You are more than amazing. Always on time. Infinitely smarter.
