This morning in our meeting, we sang a song which asked the question, “Who can stop our God?” and I was led to think about how His plans and purposes cannot be thwarted.

When men from the East asked, “Where is the one born King of the Jews?” Herod’s slaughter of the innocents could not stop Him.

Temptations from Satan could not stop Him.

The traps, questions and plotting of religious leaders could not stop Him.

False accusations, lies and a secret trial could not stop Him.

Flogging, mocking, beating, the Roman authorities and the cries of the crowd could not stop Him.

Jesus was determined to go to the cross.

Where death could not stop Him.

A stone across the entrance to His tomb and a Roman guard could not stop Him.

As He ascended into heaven, to sit at the right hand of the Father, nothing could stop Him.

Today, nothing can stop Jesus pouring out His Spirit, His love, grace, mercy and forgiveness.

When He returns, riding out of heaven with an army of angels to establish His kingdom in all its fullness, nothing will stop Him.

Jesus is unstoppable.
