"And he went out and followed him. He did not know that what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision."
Sometimes the blessing of the Lord are so immense and beautiful that they seem unreal. Sometimes the Lord moves us before we can even comprehend what he's doing.
Peter followed the angel of the Lord, even though he though he was seeing a vision. this verse makes me stop and think. How often do we want to know what were doing, how we're doing it, when were doing it, and every single little detail along the way?
I need to practice following the Lord where He leads, even when I have no idea what the reality of the situation is, or where He is leading me. After all, isn't that what the mission field is all about? Walking by faith, and forfeiting all our own plans.
