[CF Devotionals] 2012-04-23 - What Would Barsabbas Say?

Acts 1:21-26

Then they prayed, "Lord, you know everyone's heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen." (Acts 1:24)

I wasn't chosen as one of the twelve disciples, but don't feel sorry for me. I am not hurt. It is God's will. What a compliment, to even be in the running. Matthias will be a fine addition to the discipleship.

It has not been a waste of time, being a follower in Jesus' ministry. I have learned things no other worldly experience could teach me. Now that Jesus is gone, I will maintain my support to the ministry. I cannot imagine doing anything else. I hope to continue learning about God, and to be an inspiration to people.

Lord, I know in my heart that You will provide for all my needs, whether physical or financial. You haven't let me down before. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Could you have had the same positive attitude as Barsabbas?
