Who Opens Her Heart? (by Carley Evans)

Paul sets sail from Troas to Philippi of Macedonia. On the Sabbath, they go outside the city gate to the river to find a place of prayer. Women are gathered there; so Paul and Barnabas sit down and speak to them. Lydia, “a dealer in purple cloth from the city of Thyatira, who worships God, is listening. The Lord opens her heart to pay attention to what is spoken by Paul.” (Acts 16:14, HCSB)

Who opens Lydia’s heart? Not Paul. Not Barnabas, but the Lord. Lydia is enabled by the Lord to hear Paul’s message of salvation.

Thank You, Lord that You enable us to hear Your message of salvation, and to believe on Your Name. In Jesus, we pray. Amen.
