Acts 25: 11 “If, however, I am guilty of doing anything deserving death, I do not refuse to die. But if the charges brought against me by these Jews are not true, no one has the right to hand me over to them. I appeal to Caesar!’”
No one has greater authority than God.
Paul, a Roman citizen, now plays his card. The right to appeal to the Supreme Court was given to every Roman citizen.
How Paul knew was uncertain but he could see through the desire of Festus to have him tried in Jerusalem. There was no way Paul was going to put himself in the place of his life being threatened, not because he was afraid, but because he was holding on to the promise of God of being a witness for Him in Rome.
“No one has the right”, Paul says. No one can move me. I know who I am because I know who He is and what He wants for me.
No one can shake you. Psalm 62:2 “Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I shall never be shaken.”
No one can take your joy. John 16:22 “no one will take away your joy.”
No one can take you from the Lord. John 10:28 “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.”
No one has the right over you, they can change your circumstance perhaps, they can attack you, but no one can move you from your freedom to choose Him and to remain in Him. No one.
