A Surprise Move Of God

Scripture
45 And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles. 46 For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and extolling God… Acts 10:45-46

Observation
God is doing a new work among the Gentiles. Cornelius, a Gentile is a godly man and upon Peter’s visit the Holy Spirit moves among them. This move of God revealed to Peter that God was at work in the lives of Gentiles.

Application
We need to be looking around to see how God is at work. We may be caught by surprise by the move of God in the lives of unexpectant recipients. May we be open to the new work of God and rejoice when salvation comes to all who receive Christ.

Prayer
Lord give us eyes to see your work around us. May we see your move even among those we least expect.
