Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody’s chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!” The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:26-30 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, help me grow more mature in our relationship such that it would not require something drastic to get my attention. I want to trust Your love for me and follow Your leadership regardless of circumstances. I want to follow you out of devotion rather than devastation or desperation. Do whatever You need to do in my life to make this so. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
