1/23/15 Daily Devotion

Acts 2:9-12 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs–we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”

In their own tongues, they heard them declaring the marvelous works of God. In their own languages, they heard them declaring the marvelous works of God. There are two keys found within these verses. The disciples were declaring the wonders of God from within this event, and they were doing it utilizing something that could have come from God, the ability to reach people in their own native language, in their own tongues. The people were amazed. They were bewildered, so much so that even as they heard the wonders of God,” they still asked, “What does this mean?” They were shocked, perplexed, amazed, and confused, all at the same time. Sometimes, when God shows up and shows off, we get the same way. When He moves a miracle into one of our situations, when He directs us into a specific direction, we are sometimes asking ourselves or others, “What does this mean?” We don’t always have to understand everything completely. Sometimes all we need to do is trust in the movement of God.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become filled with trust in You.
