DEVO 8.23.22


“Meanwhile, Peter continued knocking. When they finally opened the door and saw him, they were amazed.” (Acts 12:16)


- Finally!

- Finally, they opened the door!

- But what's on the other side of the door?

- The miracle!

- The miracle was waiting, while they were praying!

- All they had to do was open the door!

- And what was their response?

- They were amazed!

- What are you expecting God to do, today?

- I wonder how many times God is simply waiting for us to open the door?

- I wonder how many times he has said "I have provided for you, I just need you to receive it"

- The story is that Peter had been thrown in prison.

- Acts 12:6 says, “The night before Peter was to be placed on trial, he was asleep, fastened with two chains between two soldiers. Others stood guard at the prison gate.

- The enemy had him locked up and heavily guarded.

- The enemy had made sure there was no escape.

- The situation looked hopeless!

- But verse 8 says, “Suddenly, there was a bright light in the cell, and an angel of the Lord stood before Peter. The angel struck him on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick! Get up!” And the chains fell off his wrists.”

- Everything that had held him back suddenly fell off!

- Every barrier was removed.

- And why did this happen?

- What was the key to the breakthrough and the breakout?

- verse 12 says, “When he (Peter) realized this, he went to the home of Mary, the mother of John Mark, where many were gathered for prayer.”

- While he was in prison, Gods people prayed!

- Prayer is the answer!

- Maybe you think that prayer is “all you can do”

- Prayer isn’t “all you can do”, prayer is “the best you can do”!

- Prayer is the only thing that can set the captive free.

- Prayer takes it out of your hands and puts it in God’s hands!

- Prayer give God room to work!

- Do you know someone who needs to be set free from the mental, emotional, spiritual maybe even financial prison that they have been in?

- Or maybe it you who needs the breakthrough.

- The answer is prayer!

- Today, could be your day that your chains fall off!

- Today, could be the day, that all the locked doors swing wide open!

- Today, could be the day that your biggest prayer need is answered!

- Today, could be the day where there Lord brings His light into your dark prison!

- Today, could be the day that you stand amazed!

- Are you expecting it?

- Are you ready?

- Today, allow Him to be God!

- Allow yourself to be Amazed by his Greatness!

- Have a great Tuesday!
