There's the elaborate vision that he uses to set Peter up for his task. A task God, in his enthusiasm for Cornelius, side-steps in the end.
Who'd have thought that the God of all the universe would have the time to notice the prayers and generosity of one man. Not only notice them but be so moved by them that he would devise an amazing plan to bring him into contact with someone who could tell him what he needed to hear.
I know some people like Cornelius. Good people. People who pray and give. People who need to hear. People we sometimes find hard to reach because they are so close but so far. People for whom God may even yet be devising a plan.
So, let the passion of God for lost and missing people never cease to inspire those already found to be available for the opportunities he makes for us. And if you only get half way through your presentation, so be it. Better half way through than no way through, or even all the way through and no response!
