ALL THE DOORS WERE OPENED
"But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed"
As you read this, you may feel that life is passing you by.
You often experience success in one area and gross defeat in others.
You need a burning desire for the future, the kind of desire that overcomes past fear and inhibitions.
You will remain chained to your past and all the secrets therein until you decide: enough is enough!
I am telling you that when your desire for the future peaks, you can break out of prison.
I challenge you to sit down and write 30 things you would like to do with your life and scratch them off, one by one, as you accomplish them.
There is no way you can plan for the future and dwell in the past at the same time.
I feel an earthquake coming into your prison!
It is midnight—the turning point of days!
It is YOUR time for a change.
Praise God and escape out of the dungeons of your past.
Don't allow the enemy to plug into you and violate you through his subtle seductions.
He is a giver and he is looking for a receiver.
You must discern his influence if you are going to rebuke him.
Anything that comes, any mood that is not in agreement with God's Word, is satan trying to plug into the earthly realm through your life.
He wants you to believe you cannot change.
He loves prisons and chains!
Statements like, "This is just the way I am"or "I am in a terrible mood today"come from lips that accept what they ought to reject.
Never allow yourself to settle for anything less than the attitude God wants you to have in your heart."
