When we look at the people of the early church in the book of ACTS. We see how God allows challenges and changes of life as great opportunities to trust and obey him. We see how God blessed their lives as they allowed God’s Spirit to control them.
In Acts 9:31-43, we see Peter serving the Lord, not in a public gathering of thousands, but in a private, personal setting － ministering to the needs of just two people. And we see God blessing him, using him for his willingness to serve in changing circumstances when he was needed, where he was needed, and to those who needed him at the moment.
