What Is Between You and God’s Call?
I was just reading a post from John Piper on a passage in the book of Acts where “the gate opened of it’s own accord…” Sometimes God just opens your eyes and heart for a moment to see something you hadn’t even considered before. If you have a moment, I suggest reading the post, it’s not that long but it’s worth it. If not, the main point is quoted below.God is gracious.
Here’s the point. God has a good plan for every one of his children. No exceptions (Romans 8:28–30). But there are innumerable bars of iron in the way. Gates. Fallen trees. Canyons. Maybe it’s money. Maybe disability, cancer, virus, aging, hostile adversaries, lack of training, discouragement, fear, anger, unjust policies, prejudice, lost hope.
Mindless Obstacles Will Not Stop Us
