Pushed Out

Mar 31, 2022

Today's Scripture

Acts 8:1, 5, NKJV
At that time a great persecution arose against the church...Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them.

Today's Word

This persecution forced Philip out of Jerusalem. He was pushed out of his comfort zone. What's interesting is that previously God had poured out His Spirit upon the believers in Jerusalem. The same God who showed them that powerful sign could have stopped the persecution, but it was for a purpose--a plan to push them into their destiny. It was in Samaria that Philip saw the greatest days of his ministry. If he had stayed in Jerusalem, he would never have reached his full potential.

God knows how to get you out of your comfort zone. He opened the door; He can close the door. That closed door is God pushing you. Maybe you've been pushed out of Jerusalem, so to speak, through a bad break, a disappointment, a betrayal. Don't be discouraged. If it weren't going to work for your good, God wouldn't have allowed it. Jerusalem may have closed, but Samaria is about to open. God wouldn't be pushing you if He didn't already have a door open.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that You know what's best for me, and You're pushing and stretching me out of my comfort zone and into my purpose. Thank You for closed doors as well as open doors. I believe that You have something bigger, something better, something more rewarding up in front of me. In Jesus' Name, Amen
