In Charge – Acts 12:6

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Acts 12:6
The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance.

This was no small time for Peter. Herod just had James the brother of John murdered. What a devastating time for Peter and all the believers at this time. And since James’ death pleased the Jews, Herod is now about to put Peter on trial. Yet, we see that YHWH had a different plan for Peter. While Peter is bound between these guards, we read this in verse 7.

7 Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. “Quick, get up!” he said, and the chains fell off Peter’s wrists.

This is definitely a scene that belongs in the movies doesn’t it? The point is this, you may be in a time where it just seems there is truly no way out. But remember, YHWH is in charge. He is always in charge. Whether we are to be killed like James or spared like Peter, may we always be faithful to YHWH. He is always in charge.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
