Acts 1:20 KJV
For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
I did some cross-referencing this morning just to exactly see where the verse above comes from and the context in which it was originally used. Two verses came up: Ps 69:25 and Ps 109:8; and Peter explained that this prophesy though made by King David, was made under the influence of the Holy Spirit.
The 12 apostles had lost one of their own and had to decide whether to carry on as it were or find a replacement. They subjected the situation to scripture and the result was to go with the latter. For most of us, this wouldn’t have been something we would bother God about.
Even for me, there’ve been times I lost a staff and never really bothered to consult the Lord on what the next actions should be: to hire a replacement or just carry on without them. I only use logical reasoning and I’m done. I don’t “bother God” with issues like this. This probably is the thinking of many other Christians.
We can’t pick and choose which area of our lives need God’s attention. A God-minded person surrenders all: his financial, professional, emotional or social life is all in His hands. 🎵 He’s got the whole world in His hand 🎼
Have a blessed day.
