In Acts chapter 16 we read; 'About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was an earthquake, so violent that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened.'
This miraculous story may be beyond most of our experiences. However it might cause us to reflect on the relationship between our trials and problems, and our worship and prayer life.
Are we able to pray and worship God no matter what, or is our praise conditional on how we are feeling? Something to ponder...
I'm away in Napier this weekend, so the children get to catch up with their grandparents. It will be a blessed time I trust. I'll be thinking of you as you enjoy a service with a particular focus on music. Let us commit to praise and worship God no matter what we are going through in life. This act of faith will bring liberation to our daily lives.
