Be Still . . .

Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!”
(Acts 5:29 (NIV))
With everything that is going on in the world, do you believe that this is still true?
When you have governments telling people that the churches must close, is this still true?
When you have people saying anything is valid except professing a faith in Jesus, is this still true?
I am sure that I could keep finding examples where some form of human organization is telling us that we must obey them and not obey God. I used to believe that the time was coming that we would be called to make a decision, but now I believe that the time is here!
If you are told to stop worshipping Jesus, who do you obey?
If you are told to stay away from church or get arrested, who would you obey?
If you are told to swear your allegiance to an evil, authoritarian government, who would you obey?
What is your decision?
It is time to pray for discernment and understanding of God’s Will. We must dive deeper into God’s Word and seek His truth. We must see the world through God’s eyes and stand against anything that He calls evil.
Are you prepared to obey God?
