I have many people in this city. – God

I-have-many-people-in-this-city

“Don’t be afraid, but keep on speaking and don’t be silent.  For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.” – The Lord said to Paul in a night vision. (Acts 18:9-10)
What if Paul had not listened, or had not traveled as much as he did?

God’s people are everywhere.  His angels are everywhere.  Jesus is not limited to our earthly space or rules.  Jesus is living, always with us in our hearts and souls, and he extends his Saving Grace to everyone who sincerely asks.

Tomorrow I will be boarding a plane to Asia.  I am excited to get to see some of God’s people from the other side of the world.  Although it’s a business trip, I am sure I will come back with a new appreciation for God, for all of His people, and for God’s plan for the world to know Him and His Son.  And I’m sure I’ll have a few more stories to tell too.

About Life and Heart Matters

I love sharing the stories I see around me every day - of life, family, of the heart and of the spirit. I've written for Guideposts and Angels on Earth magazines, participated in speaking engagements across the U.S and France, and enjoy working with humanitarian efforts. I also like spending time running, swimming and reading, all of which can be done on a beach somewhere!

  1. “I have many people in this city” – what a comfort that must have been to Paul. He went on to stay there and minister for 18 months.
    Godspeed!
