Reference text: Acts 12:1-11
Acts 12:4 After his arrest Peter was put in jail, where he was handed over to be guarded by four groups of four soldiers each. Herod planned to put him on trial in public after Passover.
People pride themselves in having created ‘ impossible things’ – training sessions, games, quizzes impossible to complete and codes claimed impossible to crack. However, as
people also like to be challenged so when we are told ‘we can’t’, then we go all out to prove a point, that is a nature our father also has. Therefore, God also likes to come through for his children when we find ourselves in spots otherwise impossible to come out of on our own.
Peter was in what you would describe a place from which it was ‘human impossible’ to escape. Picture this event: Peter is sound asleep between two soldiers, double-chained, with still more guards outside the prison door watching for external intruders; Sixteen soldiers in total all for one man. Herod was taking no chances, but God proved he really never stood a chance really, and to rub it in his face: Peter walked out of the prison.
Today, if you find yourself in an impossible situation, I’ve got news for you – my dear, that is a human definition. The word IMPOSSIBLE is absent in heavens vocabulary so you can stay tuned for angelic rescues and divine interventions in your matter. What you deem an impossible situation is God’s way of saying ‘keep praying and watch what I do.
