A prison can be a very dark and miserable place. A place where you are shackled, tormented, and lonely. A place where you are constantly worried, stressed, hungry, and withdrawn. A place where no one else can go. A place where there’s no where to run and no where to hide. So let me ask…what is your prison today?
Maybe your prison is in your emotions, your health, your friendships, your relationships, your work, your spouse, your finances, your children or a mixture of them all? Again I ask…what is your prison today?
When you feel at your lowest, you’ve lost all that you have, you have no one to turn to, you feel lonely and lost, you have no way out of the current situation…then it’s time for a PRAISE BREAK!
25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. 27 The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!”
29 The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas.30 He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” 32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. 33 At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized. 34 The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole household.
Paul and Silas were in a literal jail. They were shackled and had no where to go. But at Midnight, in their darkest hour, they started singing hymns and praising the Lord. Just from that praise…their chains were broken, their wounds were washed, they were feed and saved many people from one simple and amazing miracle God created.
So, when you feel like you are at your wits end, when you don’t want to get out of bed, when you feel trapped and lonely and you simply want to give up…then you are primed for a miracle, a breakthrough and for something amazing to happen!
In the darkest of circumstances…Praise Him! Make some noise of joy! Stir up your faith! Cause an explosion of His goodness in your life.
He is, was and will forever be all that you need! When you don’t feel like praying or all hope is lost…PRAISE HIM! For in the blink of an eye, your situation can and will change. The weight will be lifted off your shoulders and you will begin to see the wonderful things happening in your life that only God can provide!
Your breakthrough ~ Your healing ~ Your miracle is on its way!
