God's Work Will Stand
[Sunday, June 26]
“In this hour you will see My true work stand out from the false and counterfeit. That which I have endorsed shall carry on, and My work through your life will remain steadfast as a beacon of light in this season!”
…For if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: but if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God (Acts 5:38-39).
It can be difficult at times to discern what is from God and what is not. When the early apostles were persecuted for presenting a new and unheard message, a Pharisee named Gamaliel reminded everyone that if what they were preaching was genuine it would survive longterm. While there are many ways to discern the genuine things of God,
one way is that God’s work can’t be overthrown. One major modern example is regarding the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Many groups have persecuted it; however, the Pentecostal or Charismatic movement has continued as the most rapidly growing movement worldwide since the Azuza Street Revival in 1906. Groups and denominations everywhere are constantly experiencing some form of Holy Spirit renewal. If this movement was not of God, it would have dwindled long ago, but instead has lasted over 100 years and keeps spreading.
When God endorses something, His work will stand. If God has given you a call or mandate to work for Him, you don’t need to worry about whether or not it will survive. If something is truly from God, it will prosper long-term despite setbacks. Have the assurance today that
God’s work in your life will always stand!
Father, help me discern the genuine work of Your spirit for my life, and I
take authority over every hindrance against it. I declare that Your work all
across the earth shall stand strong and every counterfeit shall be cut off! In
Jesus’ Name, amen.
