How many times have we said to our kids, “You need an attitude adjustment!” Attitude really is the key. We can neutralize dynamic events in our lives with the wrong attitude. Our perceptions or misconceptions, what we view as possible or impossible, and our prejudices or lack of them, make an awesome difference. Peter needed an attitude adjustment and God was helping him get one with the vision He gave of the unclean animals being lowered on a sheet. Peter still had the wrong attitude toward Gentiles and that could have strangled his ministry but God was helping him change that attitude toward ALL that were lost.
As Christians, we need to throw our preconceived notions out the window and let God direct us in ways we might not be used to but, if it’s His will, we can be used for the Kingdom in mighty ways.
