Running with Jesus  


Acts 24:27 " But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix' room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound."


     Paul was bound in prison now for two years. God had told him he would go to Rome but he was stuck in jail and waiting. Two years it says!

     Stuck is where we find ourselves so many times waiting. Waiting is definitely not one of my best things to do! How about you? Do you like waiting? No, I thought so! We are not use to waiting in this society, we run all the time and get ourselves in trouble because we get ahead of God.  So what can help us wait on God to act?

     David won his present battles by remembering how God had helped him in the past. He helped him kill a bear and a lion so He could help him kill this giant. So remember how God worked in the past in your life. He also knew he was coming in the name of the Lord. So cry out to Jesus in prayer. Your prayer life grows during your waiting times. Faith has an opportunity to grow and trust God with every area of our lives. Especially when we have no control over the place we are waiting. Paul was forced to remain in this jail. 

     Next spend time in worship. I learned a long time ago focusing on my situation would lead me down the path of worry, anxiety and fear that led me to depression. I learned when praising and worshipping God my spirit was lifted up and put joy and a song in my heart. My depression left because my mind is like a cup, what I fill it with is what determines the direction my mind will go! I want joy and a song in my heart, how about you?


Father, we choose to worship and praise You today! Thank You for being the glory and lifter of my head. Help me stay focused upon You and fill me with Your Spirit of peace that will help me wait upon You! 


      Ready, get set, go! Start naming all the names of God you can think of and dwell on them all day! Let's have a Jesus moment in our waiting cell! 


Are you on Satan's hit man list? Hurry back and I will see you in the morning!
