Focus Scripture: Acts 25:9 -13&14
At this point, Paul has been in prison for 2 years for preaching the truth. What stood out to us is how steadfast, and patient he was. Never wavering in his faith and God’s plan for him. Have you ever been in a situation where you have been wrongly accused, or run into people like Festus? Who just wants your situation to go away, and not do what they know is right. Do you ever feel like the very people who should be with you seem to have it out for you? How will we react? Do we act like Paul, and have faith that God is fully in control no matter the outcome? Do we take matters into our own hands and try to prove our innocence?
Lord, we pray that we can step aside and let you have full control of our lives in all situations! Lord, you know the plans you have for us and they are good! Thank you Lord! We put our lives in your hands. Amen!
