Thanksgiving – Songs In The Night

But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them” Acts 16:25

When darkness and trials are upon us it is hard to stay thankful. Midnight is a type of trial that comes into your life. It’s being stuck between yesterday and tomorrow. It’s knowing what you had or what happened to you yesterday, but not knowing how tomorrow is going to play out. So what do you do? Give thanks and rejoice. Nothing will empower you to fulfill God’s will for your life like being thankful and rejoicing. At midnight and in prison Paul and Silas gave thanks and praised God which ushered in the glory and opened prison doors. What’s the first thing a prisoner does when doors burst open? They escape. Not Paul and Silas. They had their cross hairs fixed on the jailer. Winning a soul was more important than their own freedom. People who make thanksgiving their habit are content enough with whatever state they are in to keep their focus on others.

Prayer: “May I not miss the songs you send to me in the midst of my trial. By faith I will sing thanks as a declaration to the delivering power of my God and always focus on the divine appointments you set before me.”
