Divine Availability

26Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, "Go south to the road—the desert road—that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza." 27So he started out, and on his way he met an Ethiopiand]">[d]eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians. This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, 28and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the book of Isaiah the prophet. 29The Spirit told Philip, "Go to that chariot and stay near it."

30Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. "Do you understand what you are reading?" Philip asked.

31"How can I," he said, "unless someone explains it to me?" So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.

32The eunuch was reading this passage of Scripture:
"He was led like a sheep to the slaughter,
and as a lamb before the shearer is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
33In his humiliation he was deprived of justice.
Who can speak of his descendants?
For his life was taken from the earth."e]">[e]

34The eunuch asked Philip, "Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?" 35Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.

36As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, "Look, here is water. Why shouldn't I be baptized?"f]">[f] 38And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. Acts 8:26-38

Are you available to God? Yes, I know you have a full time job, kids, ministry etc...but are you available for more of the supernatural? Are you spending enough time with God that should an angel or the Spirit of God want to send you to the bathroom where a co worker is in there crying or into the cafeteria where someone is reading the Word but they don't understand and God wants to use you like Phillip? What about God wanting you to go the grocery store to aisle 5 because there is a woman in a blue shirt that is contemplating suicide and He wants you to go and talk to her. As Christians we should so expect God to use us in these divine ways. I remember God telling me to ask this stranger if she needed prayer while I was power walking on a trail. I stopped her and asked and she busted out crying. She was already a believer but she had been crying out to God for some answers, she needed to know that God cared. We prayed together..I saw her again a couple of weeks ago it had been almost 2 months since our encounter, she said everything we prayed for came to pass and she's doing great! Be open to God increasing the supernatural to you in the upcoming year. I have a stirring in me that God wants to use us in some fascinating ways this upcoming year. Ways that will leave us and the other person or people saying I know that was God!!!

Remember the 3 B's- Be Prepared to share Christ and or be a blessing, Be Yourself-relax, listen and enjoy it, Be Obedient to both the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. Love and blessings in abundance to you!!! (-:

Pray about it!!!

Luke 14:23
An the lord said unto the servant,
Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel
them to come in, that my house may be filled.
