Acts 5:39 (KJV) 39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.
It’s an empty and terrible predicament finding ourselves going against God and His move.
We don’t take our walk with God lightly. It’s indescribably valuable. We understand why we’re told to work out our salvation “with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:13). We treat Truth with utmost reverence; we don’t want to approach them casually and end up in error. We conscientiously and continuously rid ourselves of blinders of any shape, form, and kind. Biases and prejudices may lead us straight to the enemy’s camp—not to fight it, but to fight with it—against the very God we claim to worship and serve.
Our dear heavenly Father, please keep us from blind devotion. We want to worship You, serve You, fight for You, live for You, and if needed, die for You. Please keep our paths straight; keep our hearts pure; keep our eyes open that we may know which ones are Yours and which ones are not. May we never condemn anything or anyone just because they’re new or different. May we never forget: You’re a very creative God, and You have many surprisingly pleasant ways of doing things—In Jesus’ Name, amen.
