Lift Your Spirit – “Paul and Silas (at Midnight)”

25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to 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 everyone’s bonds were unfastened. Acts 16:25-26 ESV

To choose to worship GOD in and through all your circumstances — that’s faith, Sister.

You and I both know that it takes maturity to do this with a happy heart. When you’ve got a track record with GOD to be able to smile at the adversity that holds you bound in the physical because you know the real deal. GOD’s shown you His trustworthiness and faithfulness throughout your life — even before you surrendered.

Can I share a well-known secret with you, Friend? He only seeks to shower you with goodness. We just don’t always see it. We’re blinded by the stuff of everyday living. But when we worship Him before the breakthrough, He allows us to experience His Presence in an extraordinary way.

I know this to be true. And so can you if you haven’t — yet. Faith and praise can do amazing things in the darkest places. Your voice can stir up your soul — so do it loud enough for your own ears to hear. GOD is there and will pierce that dungeon with light that illuminates the most depressed and saddened heart. The shackles that keep your feet from walking in faith will break loose.

C’mon now … try it for yourself … believe that He is already there with you because He is for you.

I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~
