Read Acts 16:11-15.
Lydia did not wait for perfect circumstances to seek God. She met with others by the river to pray and worship the true God. Without a formal meeting place or a messenger to bring the Good News it would have been easy to become discouraged. Instead, Lydia was faithful to gather with others to seek God. God blessed her faithfulness by sending Paul and Silas. We have a beautiful place to meet for prayer and worship and pastors who share God’s message, but we may still experience concerns that hinder our worship of God. Perhaps a busy schedule, work responsibilities, or relationship struggles distract us. Lydia’s faithfulness can serve as an encouragement to us today. Let’s be faithful to seek God both individually and corporately as we meet with other believers.
