Acts 25:6 “After spending eight or ten days with them, Festus went down to Caesarea. The next day he convened the court and ordered that Paul be brought before him. “
It has been 2 years of waiting and then it begins all over again. Paul is brought before Festus and he is back on trial standing before those who have not changed their accusation all this time.
There are those today who will stand before the authority of man. They will stand before those who slander and bring lies against them. But the people of God not only stand before men we stand before God, always.
We do not quiver at man’s authority. We stand in awe of God.
We do not panic at what will come from the mouths of man. We stand on every word of God.
We do not worry if the lies of man are taken as true. We stand with the One who says ‘I am the truth’.
Man can bind you, contain you, bring you to a place you would rather not be. But man can never remove you from the presence of God.
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the One who gave it all
My Lord to you surrendered
All I am is yours.
