SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY- ACTS 16:25-26
About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 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.
Thought of the day
In this situation the circumstances for Paul and Silas were hopeless and bleak. But, as Andrew says, the two believers came in an “opposite spirit” and gave radical praise to God, even in the darkest of circumstances! This caused a shift to take place in their circumstances and resulted in deliverance, not only for them, but for those around them also.
Questions to ponder
-What situations in my life are causing me to despair in some measure?
-When can I take time today to come in an “opposite spirit” to those situations and give radical praise to the Lord?
-Do I believe God can change these situations with my praise? What can I do to strengthen my faith, today?
TAKE THE CITY outreaches have been so special to me. I love being able to see the hand of GOD move in peoples lives as they are healed and families restored. GOD cares about every detail of our lives and he reaches the places that only HE can only heal! Its been an honor to see all the teams go out and share the LOVE that GOD has instilled and filled the teams with, and let it pour out to all the community. Having physical needs met also assures all we encounter, the faithfulness of our Father. So many times I have cried seeing what GOD is doing… Being able to see people brought into the KINGDOM and freedom Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Is the greatest treasure in my life. I am grateful for TAKE THE CITY allowing me to have front seat and seeing GOD move in peoples lives!
