When You Get Your Song

After they were severely beaten, they were thrown into prison and the jailer was commanded to guard them securely.  So the jailer placed them in the innermost cell of the prison and had their feet bound and chained. Paul and Silas, undaunted, prayed in the middle of the night and sang songs of praise to God, while all the other prisoners listened to their worship. Suddenly, a great earthquake shook the foundations of the prison. All at once every prison door flung open and the chains of all the prisoners came loose. Acts 16:23-26 TPT

There are times in life when it seems as though the winds of opposition blow hard and strong around us. Maybe not exactly as the story above, but there was something that occurred to me as I read this story once again. It wasn’t until they sang praises in the middle of their situations that the chains that held them fell off.

They had every right to be upset, hey, they were doing some good stuff in that town. It says they were severely beaten-extremely unjust! But they found their song and not only did it set them free, it set the others free as well.

Whatever you’re up against, find your song! Sing it loud and strong. Ignore the winds, the pain and the circumstances and sing. Sing in the face of your opposition. Sing through your tears of sorrow. Sing to your unpaid bills and your lost children. Sing so loud you can’t hear the voice of the enemy condemn you.

“I sing praises to Your name, Oh Lord. Praises to Your name, Oh Lord. For Your name is great, and greatly to be praised. I sing praises to Your name, Oh Lord. Praises to Your name, Oh Lord. For Your name is great, and greatly to be praised.”

Find your song and find your freedom.

Until Tomorrow,
