She was a wise woman I am sure. She sold fine cloth and must have carefully interacted with those around her. She took time every week for what was most important to her, worship and prayer with others near the river on the Sabbath. We don’t know her prayers or who exactly accompanied her but she wasn’t alone, members of her household were there too.
This Sabbath, was no ordinary Sabbath, YAHUAH had something for Lydia on this day. He opened her heart to receive the good news of Messiah/Mashiach in her life through Sha’ul! YAHUSHA knocked on the door of her heart and she willing received Him in! She wasn’t alone in receiving YAHUSHA, people around were immersed at the same time she was!
Like her, sometimes it is time for us to go a step farther in our faith. We may have been worshiping YAHUAH for many years but now our life needs a change as did Lydia’s and others.
When YAHUAH comes and directs something to me or shares something with me, will I keep going about my ordinary day OR will I stop to receive what He has for me? Will I share what He has given me OR keep it to myself? Will I open my heart and home?
Based upon Ma’aseh (Acts) 16:6-15
