Acts 5:38-39

Acts 5:38-39 - “Therefore, in the present case I advise you: 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.”

It is very important that we follow God in all we do in life. This message here was specifically referring to the disciples. When the religious leader wanted to kill them or throw them into prison , this man stood up and presented this argument. If what they are doing is from man it will fail; if what they are doing is from God it is unstoppable.
This same message is true for us as well. We know that we want to serve God and fulfill the plan He has for us. Sometimes we get so excited for it that we jump into it prematurely. We are given a glimpse of what God has for us and forget to wait for His timing.In this case you can be doing all the right things, or so it seems, but you are not following God. It was your own idea. If this is the case you will struggle and grow weary in what you are doing.
On the flip side though, if you are focusing on God and His leading and acting in His will you will succeed, no matter who or what may come at you. You will run and not grow weary. If God is in what you are doing He will give you the strength and drive to keep going. For we know that if God is for us, no one can stand against us. Make sure that you are serving Him for Him and not for yourself. Let the Spirit lead you in your words and deeds.
