“What God has cleansed you must not call common.”

by | Mar 20, 2019

“What God has cleansed you must not call common.” 

“And a voice came to him, “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” But Peter said, “Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean.” And a voice spoke to him again the second time, “What God has cleansed you must not call common.” Acts 10:13-15

Peter, after he turned around and repented, became reliable for God to use in some many profitable ways. However, he felt he knew God so much by what he has learned and experienced in the past that he was almost shutting God out of HIS next move. 

God is limitless, but Peter’s knowledge and experience were limited.

How do you understand and interpret God?

Don’t limit God with your past understanding.

 Be open to God to find out what he is doing now. 

Peter had the grace to hear God’s voice a second time.

What about you?

Are you giving God that second chance to speak to you again?

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

Give room for God to reveal HIS mind to you on your thoughts.

Allow His higher ways and plans to be communicated to you.

Sometimes God’s revelation is progressive.

He initially told Abraham to sacrifice Isaac and when he willingly trusted God and ready to obey God provided a ram for the sacrifice. 

He told King Hezekiah it was over, but after prayers, He gave him an extension 

Hear God progressively 

Stay in His Word and Stay Current in listening and obeying 

God indeed is not limited.

HE will use HIS Word to confirm to you HIS next move.
