Spirit not safety

RE Verse reading–Acts 4:5-31 (day six)  “Know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed”  (vs 10)  It must have been intimidating.  To say the least.  They were standing in the same hall with the same people who had condemned Jesus to a gruesome death just weeks before.  Did the disciples comprehend the danger?  Certainly.  But these were men who were no longer navigating life with a view to personal safety or success.  Their new operating system was to walk with the Spirit of God–no matter what!  The consequence?  A fearlessness and clarity that the world had never seen.  The results would be the same in us.  “For God has not given us a Spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline”  (2 Timothy 1:7)  If my people will humble themselves and pray. . .

    May this be so of us, Lord. Give us Wisdom and Understanding… teach us how to do this. May our only goals be to walk with You and do Your Will….for such a time as this.
