Acts 25:8-12 NLT

Paul denied the charges. “I am not guilty,” he said. “I have committed no crime against the Jewish laws or the Temple or the Roman government.” Then Festus, wanting to please the Jews, asked him, “Are you willing to go to Jerusalem and stand trial before me there?” But Paul replied, “No! This is the official Roman court, so I ought to be tried right here. You know very well I am not guilty. If I have done something worthy of death, I don’t refuse to die. But if I am innocent, neither you nor anyone else has a right to turn me over to these men to kill me. I appeal to Caesar!” Festus conferred with his advisers and then replied, “Very well! You have appealed to Caesar, and to Caesar, you shall go!” (Acts 25:8-12 NLT)

Prayer: LORD, when people attempt to trap me in words or conflicting circumstances, help me rely on Your wisdom for my response. Sometimes there appears to be no good solution. Regardless of appearances, You always have one. Show me how to avoid the trap. Reveal the path through the circumstances. Enable me to recognize it and follow it. Do whatever You need to do to make it so. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
