Today Reminder - 29 November 2011

My prayer for you for today is that the Lord will break loose the chains of this world that bounds you and that you will feel His hand at work in your life.

Acts 12:6-8
The night before Peter was to be placed on trial, he was asleep, fastened with two chains between two soldiers. Others stood guard at the prison gate. Suddenly, there was a bright light in the cell, and an angel of the Lord stood before Peter. The angel struck him on the side to awaken him and said, "Quick! Get up!" And the chains fell off his wrists. Then the angel 
told him, "Get dressed and put on your sandals." And he did. "Now put on your coat and follow me," the angel ordered.

God is in control. Peter’s escape from prison is just one of those miracles that leave you without words. I said earlier that reading Acts has been a humbling experience, but this is just amazing again. One cannot help to think what happened in that prison sell when those soldiers woke up the next day. Soldiers are trained to be prepared for attacks at any time, but a mere fisherman escaped their custody while sleeping between them. In our life this is a career breaker. The way God freed Peter is just how God is. You see I am sure Peter did not expect a prison break, because he was not prepared. I guess that this happens in our lives almost daily. We pray but we do not expect. Jesus said that whatever we ask in His name, He will give us. It is what we ask and what our purpose is for what we ask. If God can break Peter out of prison He surely can break you out of your bonds. 

If you are bound by problems or sin or troubles that are keeping your heart closed to God, then it is time that you trust God. And for this I will say: “Quick! Get up! Get dressed and follow me.” God is going to free you from your chains and use you to testify and glorify Him. You will remain in my prayers and together with God we will overcome it all.

Another day created just for you.

Have an awesome day!
