"When his accusers got up to speak, they did not charge him with any of the crimes I had expected. Instead, they had some points of dispute with him about their own religion and about a dead man named Jesus who Paul claimed was alive..."
INSIGHT: At a phony trial, an ambush waiting to attack him, in the midst of the toughest of circumstances, Paul sticks to his message that Jesus is alive, and trusts in His sovereignty. And despite the way the circumstances looked, God was working.
PRAYER: Lord, give me and give all of us the strength to trust You, even when the deck seems stacked against us. Help us to trust in Your plan, and how You're guiding us, even when we don't understand it. Amen
