Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word 

Acts 7:55-56 - But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed steadily into heaven and saw the glory of God, and he saw Jesus standing in the place of honor at God's right hand. 56 And he told them, "Look, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing in the place of honor at God's right hand!"

Apply

God anoints Stephen to preach the Gospel to those who would soon take his life.  If he called Stephen to preach to his would-be enemies, who might He be calling you to share with in word or action?  

Yield

Lord, I will obey You in sharing Your life and love with all whom You charge me.

Revelation

We might assume that when God is blessing our Obedient Service in one area that we would be able to take that as a sign to always ‘stay put’.  Yet, Philip was seeing great things happen in Samaria and God still called him away to serve ‘the one’ along a desert road!  How could this make sense?  How could Philip be ok with such a ‘demotion’ in his Kingdom work?  When we Know God, we trust His judgements and plan even when they don’t make sense.
