Good Morning my friends,
For the first time Paul is called “the prisoner”. How could Paul be of good cheer in those circumstances? In Acts 23, we see the graphic account of God’s providential dealing in the life of one willing to go to prison for Jesus’ sake. Such treatment should create depression and discouragement but during the night-time, Jesus gave him great encouragements. The Lord STOOD by him and it’s great to know in every crisis the Lord will stand by us. The Lord SPOKE Words of cheer, commendation, and certainty. The Lord SAFEGUARDED him. The remainder of the chapter we see the thrilling way God providentially, preferentially and powerfully took care of him.
“The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.” (Acts 23:11)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU… Thank the Lord for being with you in every crisis..
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC day… Blessings & much love….D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!
