Acts 17 vs
26.》 “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,”~《NKJV》
APOSTLE PAUL during one of his missionary journeys got to Athens. And whiles waiting for Timothy and Silas who had been sent for, he saw something that provoked him to godly jealousy. It reads “…his spirit was stirred in him, when he SAW the city wholly given to idolatry [ Act 17:16]. In other words, his spirit was greatly upset or provoked within him”. This is a positive stirring of holy anger to do the right thing. Yes, no true man of God will laugh or mock a city that is wallowing in idol worship.*He got a zealous “sympathy” and compassion for the people.
This is worthy of emulation in that any village, town, city and nation that does not acknowledge Jesus and His salvation need to be felt for and be interceded for. We don’t need to laugh at them or boast of our salvation in Christ over them. The gospel must reach them to accept and believe Christ, the Messiah. Our focal text is one of the revelations unveiled by the Apostle to the Athens which is also relevant to us today; That God has made all humans from one blood, fixing the seasons of the year and the national boundaries within which they live”.
This revelation is vital because you will not feel inferior to any race or nationality in this world. We are all from one blood. And your demarcated boundary is not a mistake or by chance. There are several opportunities of strength and prosperity found in these boundaries whether nations, countries or states. Therefore you must rise up to see these opportunities and utilize them for your good. For where you find yourself is not a mistake but God’s design. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always. Amen!
I live within the demarcated boundary of God. Even though challenges prevail, I turn them into opportunities to flourish by the grace of God bestowed upon me. I am not a mistake here; my land of dwelling is not a mistake. I take charge to profit through Christ Who strengthens me. Hallelujah !
