BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 57;Psalms 58;Psalms 59; 1Corinthians14; 1Corinthians  15

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Acts 12:1-10
12 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.

And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.

And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.

And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.

And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.
Acts 12:11

PRAISE AND WORSHIP: Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: You will not sink with that problem but come out with multiple celebration, in the name of Jesus.

MFM Daily Devotional 27 June 2024 MESSAGE

The early church, especially the Apostles, faced intense persecution from the Jews. They were frequently imprisoned for no justifiable reason, but they were preaching and healing in the name of Jesus. Nevertheless, God manifested His power by miraculously delivering them from unjust captivity.

In a particular instance, Herod already caught and killed James, the brother of John. The Jews were happy, so he caught Peter too and put him in prison because it was Easter. He wanted to bring him out after Easter for judgment and possible execution.

Peter’s life was in jeopardy but he refused to be bothered. Rather, he did the best thing he could have done in the circumstance. He left the situation to God, trusted and rested his case in Him. Though bound with chains and sandwiched between two soldiers, Peter slept like a baby. However, the church was busy interceding for him ceaselessly and God sent an angel to deliver him.
