“The gospel is triumphant, and Jesus is victorious. Nothing can stop Him, and no one can stall His work on earth.
In the early days of the church, the Jewish high officials in Jerusalem couldn’t figure out what to do with the apostles. During a gathering to discuss the issue, Israel’s most respected rabbi, Gamaliel, rose to speak. He told the officials: ‘Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God’ (Acts 5:38–39 NIV).
As far as we know, Rabbi Gamaliel was not himself a Christian. But on this occasion, he spoke true wisdom, and his words have rung true for two thousand years. They are true for you. Your influence, your work, and your service for the Master cannot be stopped.”

My prayer this week: Lord Jesus, in you we are unstoppable. As I obediently answer your call and follow through, you make it possible for me to achieve the impossible, so that your name might be glorified. Thank you for this gift. Help me walk in this truth always, without fear, without hesitation. Help me do your work boldly every day of my life.
