Acts 16:25-26 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. 26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. In this story concerning Paul and Silas, we find in the prior verses, two believers that are beaten severely, imprisoned, bound by chains, and confined. Many times in life we find ourselves in positions where we feel beaten in life, imprisoned in our minds, bound by our circumstances, and our backs against the wall with seemingly no possible way to escape.
How do you respond when you find yourself in a position where it seems there is no way of escape? Do you give God the glory and praise our way out or complain?
The story of Paul & Silas proves that Praise is a powerful tool to use as a believer even when all doesn’t seem well in life. Your praising God in the midst of your tough time can cause heaven to move and bring about manifestations in the natural realm, as it did in this text.
Don’t allow your troubles to shape your praise. Began to live each day as one that consistently praises God no matter what happens, knowing that all things are working out for your good.
When you are facing opposition and feel restricted, bound, beaten and bruised, pray and Praise Your Way Out as Paul and Silas did!
