God’s soldiers will lift you up.
Acts 21:35 “When Paul reached the steps, the violence of the mob was so great he had to be carried by the soldiers.”
As Paul was being led away to the barracks the mob surged forward. They had one desire for Paul which had already been made clear but they will reiterate it with their shouts in the next verse! They wanted Paul dead. So Paul is hoisted up into the arms of the soldiers and on other occasions this could look like Paul had been victorious but it was for his safety.
Very simply today I want to say that there are times when the enemy of our lives will press in so quickly and so violently that God will lift us up into the arms of safety.
God can reach you. He knows where you are. You may be in the middle of a violent mob. You may have people shouting at you. You may even be the victim of a whispering campaign but the damage is equally as severe.
Well don’t give up, don’t lose all hope. He knows where you are. He will lift you up like Paul in the arms of the soldiers. God has soldiers He will use. God will use anyone. But you will be lifted.
Only believe, don’t doubt, only believe. Don’t look at what you don’t have, only believe. Don’t think of the lost opportunities, only believe. Don’t look at the danger, only believe. Don’t think of what might happen, only believe. God can and will take hold of you.
God is more involved in your life than any angry mob.
