There's something remarkable about a man who can live through being stoned, especially since the purpose of stoning was to end a life, and the people whom Paul irritated wanted him dead. How is it that they left the scene with Paul still alive? After all, they thought they were dragging his dead body outside of the city. How is it that, after being stoned, Paul was able to get up and walk away? It must be that Paul's life was not in the hands of these people but in the hands of his Heavenly Father. God wasn't finished with Paul, so Paul didn't die. If you're alive (which you probably are), then you might ask God what He has for your life? God has the power to remove you from this earth at any moment, and it could be that your very reason for remaining here is the unfinished work that He has for you. Remember that your life is in God's hands.
You are here: / / Your life is in God ‘ s hands (Acts 13-14)
