Acts 16:31 Verse of the Day

Earlier in the passage, Paul and Silas were arrested after casting a demon out of a slave girl and consequently ending her ability to predict the future, an ability that had proven quite lucrative for her owners. Yet what the owners intended for evil – having Paul and Silas arrested – God intended for good. That night an earthquake shook the jail while Paul and Silas were singing hymns, shaking the doors of the jail open. Instead of fleeing for freedom, they remained in their cells and the jailor came to faith as a result of their witness.

We are frequently tempted to think that life’s difficulties lie outside the sovereign control of the God who loves us. Yet passages like this one teach us that God indeed works all things for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28). Pray that you would have the faith to endure hardship for the greater good that God has planned for you, and that you would have the patience and willingness to endure suffering in the meantime. Thank God for the promise that He will ultimately make all things right, whether in this life or the next.

That's just not true, you and your household each have to believe and ask the LORD to come into your life.

I believe in the virgin birth, that He died on the cross for my sins, and He rose on the third day and is at the right side of the Father making interstation for me this day and always. Thank you Jesus.....
