In the book of Acts the 12th chapter.
Peter is in jail.
He is on death row.
Peter a man of God is filled with the Holy Ghost.
He is in jail for no reason.
God wants you to know from this text, which is his word, that just because you are saved, and you love the Lord; does not mean you will not have trouble.
But He wants you to know that trouble won’t last long.
He will come to break you out of jail.
Whatever your jail may be.
Any locked up situation is jail.
Love life maybe in jail,
money in jail,
peace of mine in jail.
God said He is a present help in time of trouble.
That’s why He said no weapon formed against you shall prosper.
He said I will make your enemies your foot stool..
The reason why you are in a jail situation is because the devil is trying to stop you from doing great things for God.
But God has the power to break you out of bondage.
Peter was in Jail and I am sure He was praying.
Just like you are praying, but your prayer has not been answered yet.
Peter prayed but He was still in bondage.
But when the church prayed, God broke Peter out of jail.
You can pray but when you get your family together and pray, God will perform miracle’s.
When your co-workers get together and pray everyone will get a raise.
When the doctors get together and pray people will be healed.
You see the church is not a building , we are the church, it is on the inside of us, and there is power in you and power in me, and when we come together, that’s more than double power.
Because Jesus said when 2 or 3 gather in my name, I am in the mist.
That’s why you+ me + Jesus = miracles.
Your get a get out of jail card when the church prays.
God will not let you stay locked up.
He may not come when you want Him, but He is an on time God.
He is never late.
Tell the church what you need, and when they pray you will be set free.
