The Creator of Heaven and Earth invites us to know Him. Yet in a prosperous society like ours, pursuing God can be a challenge. Busyness and self pursuits can start to take priority over God. Life doesn't always go as we hope though. Tough times are inevitable. It is in these hardships that knowing God will give us the strength and faith that we need. God loves you as much as He loves His Son Jesus. It is His delight to hold your hand and walk with you through difficult circumstances.
This message is about spiritual prisons—those that Satan uses to cage us, and those we keep ourselves in. God’s Word shows us how to be freed from these prisons, with a powerful example from Peter’s life.
In Acts 12, Peter was imprisoned by King Herod. Thousands in Jerusalem were getting saved through the mighty works of God, with reverberations throughout the city—and Herod felt threatened. Of course, whenever God moves supernaturally through his people, it enrages the enemy. Satan had already stirred Herod to kill James, a leader in the church alongside his brother John and Peter.
