Blessed by God’s Faithfulness

Scripture reading for May 21st:  1st Chronicles 17-20, Acts 12

Key Scriptures: Acts 12:6-8  “Now when Herod was about to bring him out, on that very night, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries before the door were guarding the prison.  And behold, an angel of the Lord stood next to him, and a light shone in the cell.  He struck peter on the side and woke him, saying, “Get up quickly.”  And the chains fell off his hands.  And the angel said to him, “Dress yourself and put on your sandals.”  

God sent an angel to rescue Peter from execution by Herod.  Peter was secured in the jail by being chained between two guards and others watched outside the cell.  But none of this was a problem for the angel who rescued Peter.  Peter though he was dreaming or seeing a vision, but to his astonishment, the doors opened and he was free!  God blessed His servant with His faithfulness.

1st Chronicles 17:26-27  “And now, O Lord, You are God, and You have promised this good thing to Your servant.  Now You have been pleased to bless the house of Your servant, that it may continue forever before You, for it is You, O Lord, who have blessed, and it is blessed forever.”  

Prayer:  Father, thank You for Your faithfulness to those who serve You.  You are able to save and rescue and bless.  Amen.
