Prison break

Prison break

Prisons in your life are confinements that keep you away from doing the will of God. It is Gods responsibility to deliver you from all prisons in your life, but you must be ready to follow quickly.

Prison break

Once the doors are broken, Run!

Acts 12:5-11

Peter was therefore kept in prison, but [a]constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church. And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and the guards before the door were [b]keeping the prison. Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell off his hands. Then the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and tie on your sandals”; and so he did. And he said to him, “Put on your garment and follow me.” So he went out and followed him, and did not know that what was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. 10 When they were past the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and went down one street, and immediately the angel departed from him.

11 And when Peter had come to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish people.”

 

Prisons in your life are confinements that keep you away from doing the will of God. It is Gods responsibility to deliver you from all prisons in your life, but you must be ready to follow quickly. The bible records that as fellow brethren prayed for Peter, the angel of deliverance visited Peter. We must notice when the prison doors have been broken and get up at once. You can experience a visitation Gods visitation for your deliverance and still remain seating on the prison floor. 

As you pray today, the prison doors have been broken for your deliverance but you must follow Jesus out of that prison. Following Jesus out of that prison is letting go of anything binding you to that affliction/sin. 

Gazing on Jesus, His love, His power, His kingdom, will help you let go of anything holding you down
