“25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. 27 The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself!

A saying goes “when a king is praised, he is motivated to do more”. The question is, in what situation should we praise the king? Is it until everything is rosy? As a child of the Most High God, it is your obligation to praise God in season and out of season. Paul and Silas were bound in prison without an escape route, but they recognized and understood a supernatural escape route (PRAISE). Do you seem to be bounded by ungodly things? There is an escape route for you. Does it look like an opposition to victory just like the Wall of Jericho? Praise with a loud voice just like Joshua and the Israelites did.

After six days of walking through the Wall of Jericho, the Israelites shouted to the Lord Almighty on the seventh day to receive their breakthrough. Have you walked around that problem for so long? Today is the day to shout, praise and thank the Lord for everything. Praise God for even your current situation and see the walls fall before you.
Thank God for all He has done and all He will do for you.
