1 - READ THE WORD
We must be cautious
"So in the present case, I tell you, keep away from these men and let them alone; because if this plan or this undertaking is of human origin, it will fail; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them—in that case you may even be found fighting against God!”
2 - Reflect
The attitude of Gamaliel, teacher of the law, before the council, when they were evaluating what to do with the apostles, shows us the way we should act in our Christian life when faced with the unknown or doubtful:
1. We do not have to make hasty judgments, evaluating based on appearances. We must ask for wisdom from God, consult more experienced Christians, and have a thorough analysis before uttering any words.
Always remembering that we are not judges, there is only one Judge and that is Jesus.
2. We must know how to wait. Many things are revealed after a while, it is important that we take care not to tear the tares along with the wheat.
3. We must be cautious in acting so as not to fall into the mistake of "fighting against God", in other words, opposing what He wants to do. This implies having an attitude of submission to His will that leads us to respect and obey it even if we do not understand it or do not like it. Knowing that our life is in His hands which is much safer than we imagined.
4. We must be careful in choosing which battles we will fight. That is, not to invest energy, arguments, time, in meaningless fights. As Paul declared, we must fight "good battles". These battles are merely spiritual, we strengthen our life in prayer with knowledge of the word to be armed in spiritual things and to be able to fight. I encourage you to rest in what God wants for your life, always focusing on your natural and spiritual growth.
