Today's Devotion

We want to help you as you learn to journal and do devotions.  In this section we will provide a sample of one of Pastor Sheldon's devotions. We hope you will learn from what he is learning as well as learn to journal on your own!


FROM VISION TO REALITY


Scripture: 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.  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.  Then the angel said to him, “Put on your clothes and sandals.” And Peter did so. “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me,” the angel told him.  Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision. (‭Acts‬ ‭12‬:‭6-9‬ NIV)


Observation: Peter was in prison and was kept under guard very well. They secured him in such a way that there was no way for Him to escape. Not only did they have guards outside of his cell, but they also had two guards sleep right next to him. But nothing could stop the Angel of the Lord. While Peter was sleeping, the Angel of the Lord woke him up, took off the chains, and gave him instruction to put on his clothes and sandals, and Peter did so. Then he said to wrap his cloak around him and follow me. Peter thought he was seeing a vision when the Angel of the Lord released him...probably because he just recently had a vision from You. Now the vision was becoming reality. 


Application:  You woke me up today to remember that my chains have been taken off, and now I need to get up, clothe myself with Your Spirit, and follow You. I need to stay close to You and receive vision from You so that I can be more effective for You. 


Prayer: Lord, give me vision so I can accomplish Your will and help people find You. Help me to bring the vision You’ve given to me into reality. 

“I LOVE YOU JESUS. AMEN!”
