Sneered: Word Ambassadors: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: Acts 2:13

“But others sneered and said, ‘They are filled with new wine.’”

These scoffers at least had the courage to speak their ridicule aloud. To go on record for saying give me proof. Perhaps some secretly longed this was all true but could not bring themselves to believe what they saw.

Today with all the advanced multi-media technology we can rarely trust anything that is presented at face value. Caution is a must with our culture’s advanced schemes and marketing.

And yet maybe we have become so jaded world wise that it subconsciously undermines real faith opportunities and perspective. We struggle to recognize real answers to prayer. We may not actually sneer in our hearts but silently let fear clog the opportunity to step into true light and healing and hope. We think it might be possible in theory—possible for someone else—but not for us.

“Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you.” Matthew7:7 NAS

And we hesitate, or reluctantly turn away, because it seems too good to be true.

Lord, please give us sight to truly see You. Give us faith to trust. And give us discernment to clearly recognize Your words in our lives.

Psalm of Worship: Genesis 1:13

“And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.”
