No matter the limitations the enemy places against you or around you God can bring you out and take you beyond. Peter, in Acts chapter 12, was surrounded by four soldiers in four shifts totaling sixteen. Two watched at the cells door and the other two were chained to him. Herod was not taking any chances especially after hearing of his miraculous or should we say his mysterious escape from custody in Acts 5:17 – 23. The security was tight. But he could not be imprisoned! Neither can you be imprisoned!
No rescue team, no last minute legal appeals, no behind the scene bribery. Nothing! It was an impossible situation! All around you there may be obstacles, human and demonic, threatening to stop or limit you, with no hope or help in sight. Love ones may have abandoned you, those you helped in the past rather than help, turn out to be the source of the afflictions and they rejoice over your helpless and impossible situation.
But with God all things are possible! Peter knew this and was at peace! No anxiety, no fear, no worry! He slept between two soldiers (Verse 6). An anxious person cannot sleep. Peter wasn’t! Don’t allow the enemy take your joy or your sleep. Be at peace with God. Peter trusted God with his life. Whether it be death or life, he trusted! Trust God.
Your faith is your pillow in the days of storm and trial. God’s wise and good thought for you cannot manifest until you trust Him. Your trust in Him brings you Peace, for He will always speake peace to those that trust in Him.
People prayed for Peter. Jesus is presently praying for you. People you do not know are also praying for you. The 7000 prophets couldn’t have been eating and drinking. They may also have prayed for Elijah’s success at Camel. At the darkest hour of your life, God will shine His light! He has never forsaken His own, and you will not be an exception. Faithful is He. There is no door or gate that God cannot open! There is no lock that He cannot pick! There is no combination He cannot break!
Be it your job, your marriage, ministry, spiritual life, social life, finance, everything about you. God can deliver you! You can’t be caged!
