ACTS 16: 16 Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling.
17 This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.”
18 And this she did for many days. But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour.
19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities.
20 And they brought them to the magistrates, and said, “These men, being Jews, exceedingly trouble our city;
21 and they teach customs which are not lawful for us, being Romans, to receive or observe.”
22 Then the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates tore off their clothes and commanded them to be beaten with rods.
23 And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely.
24 Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.
The Philippian Jailer Saved
25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.
26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.
27 And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself.
28 But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.”
29 Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas.
30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.
33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized.
34 Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.
Just because Paul commanded that the spirit of divination come out of a slave girl who brought her masters much profit by fortune telling, Paul and Silas were beaten with rods and had many stripes laid on them and they were thrown into prison. But instead of complaining and murmuring about their unjust treatment they were praying and singing hymns to god and the prisoners were listening to them! And then it happened God did a suddenly and suddenly there was a great earth quake so the foundations of the prison were shaken and immediately all the doors were opened and every one’s chains were loosed. In an instant the whole negative situation that Paul and Silas were in changed and as a result even the keeper of the prison and his whole family believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and were saved and baptized!
Yes, it doesn’t matter what prison you are in be it physical, financial, emotional or whatever, if you praise the lord like Paul and Silas did, God can and will do a suddenly for those who praise Him and trust Him in spite of their negative circumstances! God’s word is unchanging:
Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
God who by His great and mighty power brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the same power that works in us and to make us complete in every good work to do His will. God in whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, and sealed us with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory is only limited by our lack of faith and our will. If we are willing to obey and believe Him, He can and will do all things for us just like He has done for others including delivering us from the den of lions just like He did for innocent faithful praying Daniel. God’s word is unchanging:
Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions. And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?”
Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! “My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”
Then the king was exceedingly glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no injury whatever was found on him, because he believed in his God. And the king gave the command, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions-them, their children, and their wives; and the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they ever came to the bottom of the den.
Then King Darius wrote: To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth: Peace be multiplied to you. I make a decree that in every dominion of my kingdom men must tremble and fear before the God of Daniel. For He is the living God, And steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, And His dominion shall endure to the end. He delivers and rescues, And He works signs and wonders In heaven and on earth, Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions. So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian. Daniel 6:19-28
Yes, our God is the living God, and steadfast forever; His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure to the end. He still delivers and rescues, and He works signs and wonders in heaven and on earth, and is the One who had delivered Daniel from the power of the lions where his envious confreres had put him there. Mind you his enemies never anticipated that the tables would be reverse and the king gave the command, and they brought those men who had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions-them, their children, and their wives; and the lions overpowered them, and broke all their bones in pieces before they ever came to the bottom of the den. But God’s word is unchanging:
The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way aright, But the wicked will fall by his own wickedness. Proverbs 11:5
Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, And he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him. Proverbs 26:27
Whoever walks blamelessly will be saved, But he who is perverse in his ways will suddenly fall. Proverbs 28:18
“But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ” – (I Corinthians 15:57, AMP))
God wants to pour out His favor on you so that you can live in victory in every area of your life. The scripture says He always causes us to triumph through Christ Jesus! That means, no matter what you may be facing today, God wants to make you more than a conqueror. Are you battling sickness? God wants to give you healing. Are you struggling with a broken relationship? God wants to give you restoration and peace. Are you facing a need—physically, spiritually, or emotionally? God’s favor will bring you provision and supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.
Many times in the Bible when God’s people were going into battle, the worshipers were out in front of the warriors. When you choose to be thankful and bless the Lord in the midst of your battle, you are opening the door to His favor in your life. Magnify your God; don’t magnify your problems! When you give praise to God, you’ll see Him move on your behalf, and He’ll lead you into victory in every area of your life!
Yes, God wants to save each person and make him well and to live in good health and through the name of Jesus this is possible. In and through the name of Jesus, each person can be saved and be established in “protection, preservation, prosperity, promotions, provisions, soundness, healing, deliverance, and ministry! And God has to the power to save, heal and make whole every person living on this planet who would heed His voice. His word is unchanging:
“If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from there the LORD your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you. ”Then the LORD your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers. “And the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live. ”Also the LORD your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you. “And you will again obey the voice of the LORD and do all His commandments which I command you today. ”The LORD your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the LORD will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers, “if you obey the voice of the LORD your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which are written in this Book of the Law, and if you turn to the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Deuteronomy 30:4-10
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
For those in whom Jesus is preeminent in their life, God able to make all grace abound toward them, that they, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. Jesus became poor on the cross so that they could be rich and abound in all the work of their hands and have great increases. Prosperity is part of the atonement and their spiritual right. They do have to live below their covenant rights and can be prosperous and successful in all things. Every weapon of Satan planned for them will turn on him and they will be more than a conqueror filled with blessings from God. All spiritual and natural blessings are theirs as inheritors of the last will and testament of Jesus Christ. God’s word is unchanging:
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. ”He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. ”All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you. John 16:13-15
Yes, even this day God will perform miracles for His trusting ones. The battle belongs to the Lord! He will fight for them. He will revive their bodies again and restore all that they have lost. He who raised Lazarus from death will help them as well, as they turn their eyes towards Jesus. He will lift them up from the valley of thee shadow of death and bring them into a new and fruitful day. God’s word is unchanging:
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. ”And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. ”If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. ”If you love Me, keep My commandments. “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever- “the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. ”I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. John 14:12-18
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8
