Prison-Shaking Savior – God has a way to shake things up to get our attention or the attention of those around us. Zach Williams said it great in his song, Chain Breaker.
Not only is the prison-shaking experience a wake up call for us or those around us. Plus the shaking will help free us. Paul and Silas not only experienced a prison-shaking, but also a chain breaking experience too.
Paul & Silas Prison-Shaking Expereince
26 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.Acts 16:26 New King James Version (NKJV)
Just like the chains being broken frees us, so does the prison-shaking experience. If you remember the full story about Paul and Silas in prison you will remember they were worshiping God when the earthquake happened. That earthquake shook the prison Paul and Silas was in. It shook so hard it tore apart the prison and even loosed the chains that bound the prisoners.
The jailer was about to kill himself. The jailer knew what would happen to him if the Roman government found out the prisoners escaped on his watch. But Paul yelled out to the jailer do no harm to himself that everyone was accounted for. This prison-shaking experience led to freedom for the jailer and his family. The jailer got saved and his whole family too.
What a witness!
What a witness that despite the prison walls being gone and the prisoners would run for “Freedom”. The prisoners could have ran away. But no, they stayed put. Right there among the rubble of the jail. They stayed put and was still because they knew God would work and bring true freedom. We are only free with Christ. John 8:32-26.
When you feel like you are being shaking, remember God works in that ordeal. He will use it to get our attention and the attention of others. That experience will lead to freedom for us or others around us. When you feel shaking … Be Still and Know He is God. (Psalm 46:10)
If you need freedom or saving
He’s a prison-shaking Savior
