Re: Verse reading–Acts 2:1-41 (day three)

“They have had too much wine.” It is a feature of this universe that what one looks for, he will find.  One might say, “Well I looked for financial wealth and didn’t find it.”  Ah, but what is actually being sought in the search for money is a zero-sum world—and whether you find riches or not, you certainly find that world.  So again, you find what you seek.  If you decide to explain events by ruling out some things in advance to satisfy an anti-miracle bias, you seek a miracle-less world, and that’s the world that will be your home.  God’s Spirit could blast a city with sound and light and super-human abilities, and some will call it a bender.  What do your explanations reveal about what you’re seeking?

  1. I could not agree more, “you find what you seek.” It may take awhile but if we are persistent, we will get what we look for. There would be pain and headaches during the wait periods. We should examine the following questions:
    1) Do we know what we look for?
    2) And what are the pros and cons of what we look for and receive it?

    Any bad decisions can lead to suffering down the road! Over the years and through my 37 years as a US public servant, almost all the questions I have had about life/materials and God have been answered. As I grow older and have collected sufficient wisdom through education, extensive work and life experiences, I now understand deeply who I am and what a meaningful and satisfied life is. Everyone has a choice to make. At the end of every career decision, I chose God over materials.

    I wish for you to come up with the right choice once God has given you sufficient resources to live on the rest of your life. I wish that our passion is for God. God bless!
