“And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed” Acts 16: 26.
Immediately the doors were open! As I have been praying for the people of God and meditating on His word every since the Lord gave me a vision, the “Vision of the Open Door“ (September 1, 2013), God has consistently spoken about doors opening for his people!
As I was thinking of all of the different situations that most are encountering in their life, there are so many trials and so much warfare coming from all sides. Mentally, emotionally, physically, financially… But God wants His children to know that we are never alone, regardless if we feel bound and in chains.
The Lord has already intervened and moved on our behalf. God’s hand is not short concerning us. God is not slack with His promises. When he speaks a thing, it shall come to pass! And again… It shall come to pass!
Immediately and suddenly situations are changing. God has shifted and shaken some people and some things around; and soon the doors of blessings and destiny will suddenly open, just when we least expect it! Just as Paul and Silas were bound in chains in jail, God suddenly showed up!
We must keep the faith and trust in the Lord and not focus on the circumstances! Just praise God until He suddenly shows up in our lives! He will answer, even while we are in the middle of prayer and praise! Change is here, for God’s best plans for our lives! God has spoken and promised it! So there is nothing left to do but believe and wait patiently on the Lord.
We are in the midst of God surprises and suddenlies. He is not going to show up when we want or think He is, but God is going to surprise and amaze us beyond our wildest imaginations!
Our faithfulness to Him is being rewarded. Rewards like we never could have imagined! Our God is limitless. He is infinite in might and power! We serve the almighty, all powerful God! Right now, we may be in a dire situation and yet, in this same minute, God will pull us out! Right now we may be bound, in lack, or in poor health. But suddenly, just like the mighty rushing wind that came when the Holy Ghost fell on the day of Pentecost — suddenly! God will change our situation and turn it all around. Immediately and all of a sudden!
“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear” Isaiah 65:24.
“And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting” Acts 2:2.
