There’s an impossible situation. You know the one. You lay it at the feet of Jesus only to pick it right back up again. Why do we do that? Perhaps we lack the faith to recognize God’s “got this.” Love and Outcome gives an encouraging message to remind us that God has it all in hand.
God proves Himself over and over again in Scripture. Let’s peek into a couple of actual accounts.
In this episode, I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
- Read and keep on reading
- Consider the opposite
- Considering the opposite of God’s sovereignty
- The context of Saul’s persecution of the early church – Acts 8:1-3, Philippians 3:4-6, Galatians 1:13-14
- The road to Damascus did not go Saul’s way because it wasn’t supposed to – Acts 9:1-31
- What seemed like an impossible barrier to the cause of Christ ended up being the catalyst for spreading the gospel around the world
- Peter’s story of discovering the path he was on was not the path of God – Acts 10
- Criticism of Peter and his experience recapped – Acts 11:1-18

This Week’s Challenge
I skimmed over quite a bit of the text today — catch up by reading Acts 6-11. Keep God’s sovereignty in the forefront of your mind as you read. How would these accounts look different if the main characters were sovereign over the outcomes? What were some of the “grand-scheme-of-things” outcomes in reality? Where in your life are you questioning God’s sovereignty? How can these accounts lead you to trust and submit to His will and ways?
