After Peter and John were threatened and then released by the religious leaders who had commanded them never to speak in the Name of Jesus again, Peter and John went immediately “to their own company” (Acts 4:23). In other words, they went back to their fellow Christians who believed like they believed, and they told them what had happened. And the Bible says, the people immediately “lifted up their voice to God with one accord” (Acts 4:24).
Is the enemy threatening your life today? Then, go to the people of God. Don’t go to your critics or to nonbelievers. Don’t go to those who would discourage your witness for Jesus. Go to people of faith who are filled with God’s Spirit!
Peter and John went to a group of people who had come out of the founding of the Christian Church on the Day of Pentecost. They were people who believed in the supernatural intervention of God. If you are being threatened by the devil today, make a decision, “I’m not going to make contact with somebody who denies God. I’m going to seek out people who believe and who can add their faith to mine.”
