Keep Praying and Singing

Acts 16 25

Verse of the Day:  Acts 16:25

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.

Paul and Silas were in a pretty bad situation. They had been beaten and thrown into prison. They had every reason to be bitter and angry, but because of their love and faith in Jesus they chose to pray and sing to God despite their current circumstances. Whatever difficult situation you may find yourself in today, keep praying and singing to God. Keep praising God no matter what the circumstances. Keep praising Him until He gives you the victory.

Ordinary + Courage = Extraordinary

Acts 4 13

Verse of the Day:  Acts 4:13

When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

You don’t have to be an eloquent speaker to tell people about Jesus. All you need is the willingness to share your own story. Just tell others what God’s love, goodness, grace and mercy has done in your life. You don’t have to be educated or skilled in a specific vocation to volunteer to help the poor, you just need to show up. You don’t have to be rich or powerful to make a difference. Ordinary people like you and me with some God given courage and a love for Jesus can make an extraordinary difference to somebody.
