19 February 2024


Peace of the Lord and have a good start to the week everyone.
For today's "Bread from Heaven", Monday 19 February 2024, the thought I felt like sharing with you has as its key verse:
Acts 5:38-39 (NIV)

“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.”

Gamaliel was a Pharisee, but he was also a very wise man. The above verses are a fragment of his speech to those who opposed the early disciples and their teachings. There is so much truth in his words that we can apply them in our lives even today. The bottom line is, if you are executing a plan that you know is in line with God's will for you, it will not fail. It may be delayed, but it will not be cancelled.
On the contrary, if you try to do something outside of God's will, you can be sure that it will not work out well for you. If you are willing, the Holy Spirit will teach you to make wise decisions that align with God's purpose for you. When you heed His promptings and obey His word, you can be assured of God's favor in your life.
Walking the path God has laid out for you guarantees God's providence, protection and presence. Take care to follow His direction and no one will be able to hinder His purpose in your life. God's plans will ultimately succeed. Believe and declare the truth of Job 42:2 – “I know that you can do everything and that nothing can stop you from carrying out your plan.”.

Today we want to pray together and say: God the Father, thank you for everything you do for me. Guide my life and instruct me in everything. I wish to live a life where you guide me. Help me overcome everything with Your strength. In the name of Jesus... Amen!
With love, Ivano Salerno
