Sometimes we may feel imprisoned, in need of a breakthrough because of an unwise decision. At such times we must look in faith to our Redeemer, with praise being the master key of precision.
Of course, some problems are unforeseen, and we had nothing to do with how they came about. But filling the Lord’s ears, night and day, with His praises, will bring release and break persistent doubt.
Paul and Silas were shut inside of a prison–praise to God was their only weapon of choice. Then God sent an earthquake to set them free, because they had chosen, wisely, to rejoice!
They went from being jailed to being guests in the jailer’s home and recipients of his care. The jailer had become their brother in Christ–what an answer to their praises and prayer!
So if, today, you hear of troubling situations in this world and wonder what you can possibly do…after prayer, keep praising our Lord Jesus Christ, who is mighty to save and ever Faithful and True!
P. A. Oltrogge
