In this week’s Unstoppable study of Acts, we shift focus from the church at Antioch and examine a miraculous prison escape for Peter in Acts 12:1-24. It is an exciting account with many supernatural details and some humour also. There is great relevance for us as we learn to walk in the supernatural.
WHAT WILL YOU DO
Think of a challenging situation you are facing today. Of the main characters in this passage, with whom do you most identify in your current circumstances? Opportunistic and self-absorbed Herod? The prayerful and yet doubting community of believers? Peter, at peace enough to sleep though imprisoned? As you experience God’s deliverance in whatever form He chooses, will you also joyfully praise Him and give Him all the glory? Verse 24 reminds us that regardless of the attitude of our hearts, His word will continue to spread and will be unstoppable. Will you choose today, to be on His side, to walk supernaturally and help spread the unstoppable truth of the gospel?
