…but if it is of God, there is nothing you can do about it—and you better not be found fighting against God! Acts 5:39 The Message
The religious leaders of that day decided to kill Peter and the apostles with him for speaking about Jesus. It was Gamaliel (one of their own) who spoke up in their defense. He gave two examples of revolutionaries who tried and failed. He said to leave them be, if it wasn’t from God it would fail just as the others. However, he warned if it was from God there would be nothing they could do to stop it and their efforts would be the same as fighting against God himself.
As followers of Jesus we never have to worry about what we do for God failing. There is nothing that anyone could ever do or say to stop God’s kingdom and the move of His church here on earth. We can with confidence serve God in a bold way each day of our lives.
God, thank you for the opportunity you have granted us to serve you. Thank you for the reminder today that when people come against us they are really coming against You and they will not be able to stop it.
