Thursday, April 26th: 1 Chronicles 16 - 18, Acts 6 ~ Nathan

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 1 Chronicles 16-18, Acts 6

Acts 6: 10-12
But they could not stand up against the wisdom the Spirit gave him as he spoke. [11] Then they secretly persuaded some men to say, “We have heard Stephen speak blasphemous words against Moses and against God.” [12] So they stirred up the people and the elders and the teachers of the law. They seized Stephen and brought him before the Sanhedrin

The leaders of the people at the time couldn't come up with a valid argument against what Stephen was talking about, so they lied about what Stephen had said and brought him before council.

The lesson here for me is to remember that if I stay true to God throughout trials, I will win in the end by being with Him in Heaven. I may have unfair things done to me (or may do unfair things to others), but in the end God will see the truth and reward justly.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: 2 Samuel 10-12, Acts 7

It's also a reminder to me to stay strong when we know what we're doing is right, and not just stop thinking that this is God shutting a door. Opposition can often mean we're doing exactly the right thing.
