Acts 16:25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. via Acts 16 KJV – Then came he to Derbe and Lystra: and, – Bible Gateway.
What can we apply from verse 25?
It was midnight.
What is midnight?
First, I think DARK.
Life experiences from time to time are dark.
I like that! At midnight we are mid-way through. We have come a ways and we have a ways to go BUT we are going through. That in and of itself is worthy of some praise. 🙂
If you read the surrounding Text of 25 you will see that Paul and Silas are in prison. Not just any prison. The darkest of darkest prisons. Let your sanctified imagination paint that picture for you – smells, creatures, etc. etc.
And what were Paul and Silas doing?
And who was listening?
What’s the message?
You got it! Praise in the dark and others will see the LIGHT!!
Love to you my Dear Friends!
ABBA, thank You for Dear Friends, many I have not met face to face, in JESUS name I speak peace into their dark places. Your peace, Your comfort, Your discernment and much to their advantage the will and ability from You to give You praise in the DARK so others will see the LIGHT. And not just for them, ABBA, but me too. Me too. We come bringing our sick and afflicted asking You to heal them. And giving You much praise that Noah is on his way to recovery! Thank You LORD Thank You! And for others, particularly the rebellious and oblivious, please have mercy, ABBA. Give them grace and space and the will to repent for JESUS sake. Bless and protect Israel, subdue their enemies, I pray. Amen and amen.
We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
