And when they had struck them with many blows, they threw them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely. He, having received [so strict a] charge, put them into the inner prison (the dungeon) and fastened their feet in the stocks. But about midnight, as Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the [other] prisoners were listening to them, Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the very foundations of the prison were shaken; and at once all the doors were opened and everyone’s shackles were unfastened.” Acts 16:23-26 AMP

Persecution teaches us to see God as our miracle worker not man. Paul and Silas suffered for the sake for Christ, but at the end God manifested a miracle to them, as they prayed and worshipped Him

Also when the children of Israel left Egypt, they were commanded to keep the testimonies and the statutes and judgements of the Lord to teach their children that God is a miracle worker and also that they serve a miracle working God.

When your son asks you in time to come, What is the meaning of the testimonies and statutes and precepts which the Lord our God has commanded you? Then you shall say to your son, We were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt, and the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. And the Lord showed signs and wonders, great and evil, against Egypt, against Pharaoh, and all his household, before our eyes; And He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in to give us the land which He swore to give our fathers.” Deuteronomy 6:20-23 AMP

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. Thank you for teaching me in persecution that you’re a miracle working God in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
