Acts 17:26-27

"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 dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;" Acts 17:26-27
How awesome is that scripture? It shows the soveriegnty of God all through it. He made from one BLOOD every nation to dwell on all the face of the earth. Every color of men and women have been made from one BLOOD. JESUS!!!!
And not only that, but He determines where and how we live. All so that we should seek HIM in hope that we may grope for Him and find Him.
Are you seeing the awesomeness of God in this scripture? It is self explainatory. We are where we live so we can seek God. Seek God! Brothers and sisters seek God. He is not far from you.
We were made to worship Him. We were saved to worship and serve Him not ourselves.
We think we make the decisions on where we live. Ha Ha Ha!! NO, God predetermined that for us. That is glorious!!! Call me crazy, but I am glad that God is in control. He is awesome!
Give Him a shout of praise.
Amen!!!!

Yeah, you're a little crazy Steve, but in a good way! That IS an amazing verse too, I had never looked at it that way before... It's weird isn't it, that physical Israel are blood-relatives of Abraham, but the eternal Israel are blood-relatives of Christ, only relatives through his shed blood. Pretty cool. Anyways, it occurred to me yesterday that I don't have an email address for ya, and would love to have one. If that's cool with you, you can email me at like.a.mustard.seed.dh@gmail.com , that would be awesome. Thanks for all your encouragement lately, it has meant a lot! - D
