Acts 12:9–Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision.
Can you really blame Peter for assuming this was just a vision? He had been fast asleep when the angel got him up. None of us, no matter who we are, always see God’s actions clearly 100% of the time. Peter was obedient and closer to God than many people and even he didn’t catch on right away. Still God moved and worked in His life and he didn’t resist. Peter eventually realized God’s plan. Are we open to following God and His plan even when we don’t fully understand it or even realize exactly what is going on? God is always in control, even when we don’t recognize it right away.
Father, I know and trust that You are moving in my life. I will be open and looking for You even when I don’t think I see anything. I know You are moving and I will trust You even when I don’t see it clearly or understand what You are doing.
