Live Now: OH LORD INCREASE MY STRENGTH – Praying the Promises 13th Dec. 2023
DECEMBER 14 , 2023
DON’T CRY, PRAISE!
At midnight, Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God and the Prisoners heard them. And suddenly, there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s hands were loosed.”
The natural response to being rejected or being in pain is to cry out or struggle to find respite. When in tight situations, praising God might be the last thing that comes to mind, but in the case of Paul and Silas, their response did not correlate to their circumstance at all. They chose to pray and sing praises to the Lord. How amazing!
Our opening text today shows us the result of their surprising response; they were delivered from the prison. This underlines the truth that the power of God can be activated in our lives when we praise.
Praising the Lord in distress, and expressing gratitude for His faithfulness in times past brings Him on the scene, and activates His power in your direction. So the next time you find yourself under pressure, do not cave in, but buckle up and demonstrate your trust in the ability of God. Nothing is impossible to Him!
