Verse of the day
September 24, 2010
“He determined the times set for [the nations of the earth] and the exact places where they should live. For God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us” (Acts 17:26-27 NIV).
What an amazing thought! I understand this verse to being saying that God has arranged the people of the earth in a way that they would be most likely to come to know him. For some reason known only to the mind of God, this is the exact time and place appointed for each of us and for everyone with whom we come in contact. Today as I interact with others, I pray I’ll be mindful that God has appointed this time so that others may come to know him.
