God Fights for Us

"But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to
fight against God."Acts 5:39

Many in Jerusalem welcomed the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. They
experienced His power to change lives and perform miracles, and there were
"many signs and wonders" (v. 12). But soon the established religious leaders
tried to reassert control. Peter and John were confronted and arrested. As
the Sanhedrin debated how to respond, one of their members, a respected
teacher named Gamaliel, provided a powerful argument that won the day.

Gamaliel pointed out that the only standard that really mattered was if
their activity was "of God." If their actions were not "of God," they
not succeed. They would fail, because they wouldn't receive His protection,
confirmation, and blessing. Yet, as events were to prove, their labour was
of God. Therefore, as Gamaliel predicted, nothing formed against them
prospered. If these disciples had tried to fight in their own strength, they
would have easily become discouraged or frustrated, afraid or worried. But
God was on their side, and they could depend on Him. Trusting in Him, they
were victorious.

Today, remember that people in the world may attack you, threaten you,
persecute you, discriminate against you, pressure you, ridicule you, or mock
you. That's why you need to be sure you are pleasing God and that He is with
As you face challenges, tests, and temptations, don't rely on your own
strength. Instead, commit these situations to God. Be sure that you're
obeying His Word and following the leading of His Spirit. Seek first His
Kingdom. Let Him take away your doubts and burdens, and replace your worries
with peace, your uncertainty with confidence.
Remember: God is on your side. He is fighting for you!

Father, my desire is to serve You and please You. I commit these situations
to You: ______. Thank You for being with me. I trust in You. Thank You for
victory! In Jesus' name. Amen.
