Love, Light and Life

... more than a devotional



Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared [beside him] and a light shone in the cell. The angel struck Peter’s side and awakened him, saying, “Get up quickly!” And the chains fell off his hands. Acts 12:7 AMP

Before the angel of the Lord visited Peter,, he had chains on his hands, which were aimed at preventing him to move. When the angel appeared, he touched Peter and woke him, then said to him, "get up quickly".

Getting up quickly is something Peter would've been unable to do before because of the chains on his hands. But as soon as the angel gave those instructions, the Bible says "instantly, the chains fell off his wrists". (TPT).

The angel didn't command the chains to fall off Peter's wrist. He simply told Peter to get up quickly. But when the word or instructions of God come to a man, they instantly make it possible for the man to follow those instructions if he chooses to do so.

Many people have been made to believe that the life God asks us to live or the things He has asked us to do are difficult or impossible. This is not true. Every time God asked someone to do something, He made it very possible for them to obey. You too can obey.

Affirmation: I see the truth, that the commands and instructions of God come with the ability and possibility for performance. God wouldn't ask me to do something I cannot do, therefore I'm able and I will by His grace, do all He has asked me to do. Glory to God!!
