"And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward Him and find Him." - Acts‬ ‭17:26-27‬

We learn several things from these verses. First of all, Paul affirms the Genesis account, that God made the entire human race from one ancestor, Adam.

Second, that God formed the nations and scattered them over the face of the earth by His design.

Third, that He has determined the geographical boundaries and the duration of each empire and world power that rises on the earth, for His own purpose.

And finally, he reveals that God’s purpose in all of this is that people everywhere should seek Him and find Him and come to know Him, but that they are like blind men who feel their way in the dark in their effort to do so.

Ultimately all of us need God to reveal Himself to us, to cut through the darkness and say, “Here I am!” That is what the Lord Jesus did when He came and revealed His glory to us, speaking words that no one else could speak and doing things that no one else could do. That is what the Word of God brings today, wherever the Gospel is proclaimed; God is saying, "Here I am! Come here to Me.”

Lord Jesus, thank You for appearing and revealing Yourself to me, and letting me know You. Lord, make Yourself known even through me to the spiritually blind who surround me still. Amen.

Pastor Dan Giles

Do you think that you can reprove words, when the speech of a despairing man is wind? ‭‭Job‬ ‭6:26‬ Job’s friends who came to comfort him ended up making him feel worse. When he complained to them ab
