Wig’s Word of God Today 4-20-2012
If this enterprise, this movement of theirs, is of human origin it will break up of its own accord; but if it does in fact come from God you will be unable to destroy them. Take care not to find yourselves fighting against God. Acts 5:38c-39b
Where can we buy some bread for these people to eat? He said this only to put Philip to the test; He himself knew exactly what He was going to do. John 6:5c-6
Acts 5:34-42, Psalm 27 & John 6:1-15
I am impressed with the reasoning of the Pharisee called Gamaliel who speaks of the Truth he and all the Sanhedrin have dealt with in the past. He knows anything from human origins will pass away like smoke in the wind but if God has His Hand in the words and deeds of the Apostles, they would not be able to stop them anymore than they could stop Jesus from rising from the dead. Jesus Christ is Risen- He is Risen indeed was in the back of their minds and the Sanhedrin Gamaliel made sure they understood Christ’s Resurrection could not be ignored.
I truly enjoy how Jesus never seems to be worried about anything, at anytime or anywhere. He knows His Father was going to guide Him to a place of Redemption and each step Jesus took; each Word He shared in His Teachings came from the One and Only True Source of all. We sometimes fail to feel this in our own lives as we anxiously prepare for an exam or share our views of God with total strangers. Maybe right now, you are struggling with someone or something really bad and you have turned to multiple sources to ask for help when the only True Source of assistance already dwells in your heart and soul.
Try to remember to look at life’s difficulties as living the Will of God and choose to conduct yourself in joyous celebration of living God’s Divine Plan to overcome fear, apprehension and concern. My wife made a picture frame out of a saying she and I live by. Make one on your own and hang it somewhere you’ll see it each day as you leave your home to live for God’s Purpose. It goes like this: “Don’t tell God how big your storm is. Tell your storm how BIG God is.” Amen.
Dear God, we pray to live in Your Will by our practice, prayer and preaching. We continue our prayers for Jemma’s recovery. Praying for a friend’s son, Brandel Bryant, who is in prison. Praying for a friend named Carlos- trust my friend God will work everything out. We pray LORD all petitions are gathered to make the ballot. We pray for my children. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”
For Christ had given them the nod- Acts 5:34-42
The Pharisee named Gamaliel
Knew the law all too well
He knew too God’s purpose dwells
In people who preach the Truth of Christ to tell
He explained many a prophet has come and gone
Each had their own story to share
We know they are human in origin
When they died people did not lend a care
He told the Sanhedrin
Have nothing to do with these men
Human desires will surely die out
Less we fight with God to eternally pout
The Apostles were released rejoicing
In their dishonor for the love of God
They knew they’d never stop preaching
For Christ had given them the nod
