“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 your tie on your sandals and so he did, and he said to him, put on your garment and follow me”
Acting on God’s word could be very interesting. One would have expected that the angel told Peter to carry his shoes and clothes on his head because they had not much time, no! they took their time to show that light is not a partial controller but total controller of darkness. The good news I have for you now is, fear not, you are free!
The presence of light frustrates the presence of darkness; the bible says and the shines and the darkness couldn’t comprehend it, they can't just stand it, no! John 1v5. For you to be freed from any form of bondage light must come on board. That Light is Jesus which in turn is the word of God respectively, John 8v12 and John 1v1.
It is the type of light that fell on Saul on his way to Damascus and blinded him to self ambitions; the light has a multifaceted dimension. That light caused a deep sleep to fall on the guards, Glory! I decree that every guard the devil as put in place to hinder you from reaching your destiny fall asleep for life in JESUS NAME, AMEN!
Also we need to know that it is your responsibility to gird yourself and get ready for freedom; you are not to be satisfied with where you are, make up your mind to move ahead and the light will come to fulfill His part. Peter had a choice to remain in that prison if he wanted to and he could have died which negated God’s plan for him. You must be fed up with where you are before you can be freed or move on in life, that is why I can say confidently that your period of stagnation is over in JESUS NAME, AMEN!
Stagnation is the mother of frustration, and know this; that only the stagnant water stink. Peter stank in prison, that is why the guards could leave him and all slept off because he had forgotten who he was and what he carried, 1John 4v4; the high tension power flowing through him. When Paul and Silas started singing and praising God in prison, Acts 16 the guards were all eyes open because they were always alert and conscious of the high tension power they carried. I see you moving on.
Conclusively when the light comes, freedom comes. Engage that light and you will be freed from every affliction of the devil because it is in playing your role that God is committed to playing His part. God bless you.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
