So in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone. Let them go! For if their purpose or endeavor is of human origin, it will fail.  But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop them. You may even find yourselves fighting against God.” —Acts 5:38-30

I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from?  My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. —Psalm 121:1-2

            If our Lord God Almighty wants to do something, it will be done.  In the context of the verses above “Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, who was honored by all the people, stood up in the Sanhedrin and ordered that the men be put outside for a little while.  Then he addressed the Sanhedrin: “Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men” (Acts 5:34-35).  The Jewish leaders “were furious and wanted to put them to death” (v. 33).  Gamaliel understood that if this movement was from God they would not be able to stop it and that they would actually be fighting against God.

            My brothers and sisters, this movement continues today and nobody can stop it.  Our Lord God Almighty has plans and purposes that He is fulfilling in this world and in and through our very lives.  None can stop these.  Let us take comfort that we are on the victory side and what He says He will do.  His will, plans and purposes shall absolutely be accomplished.

            So many times there are things in our lives that we cannot fully understand or understand at all.  But we can fully trust our Lord God Almighty to accomplish through them what He desires.  Oh, do not be discouraged.  God is not done with you.  He is just going to use the unforeseen by us circumstances in our lives to accomplish His desire through us.  Will you trust Him for that?  He will help you.  This same one who is “the Maker of heaven and earth” is with you and He will help you.  Do not try to write your own script, but follow His.  He is in control and you are not.  Yes, trust Him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6Eiv1r5UnE

Dear Father in Heaven, my Lord and God Almighty may I trust You when things are going well and when things are not going well in this fallen world.  May it be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus my Lord.  So be it!
