10/14 Acts 12-14

In Acts 12 Peter is rescued from certain death at the hands of Herod.  As the church is praying for God to help Peter in prison, God sends and angel to lead Peter out.

6The 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. 7Suddenly 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.

8Then 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. 9Peter 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. 10They passed the first and second guards and came to the iron gate leading to the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went through it. When they had walked the length of one street, suddenly the angel left him.

11Then Peter came to himself and said, “Now I know without a doubt that the Lord sent his angel and rescued me from Herod’s clutches and from everything the Jewish people were anticipating.”

Many times we find ourselves in situations not of our own making and we wonder how did we get there.  More than that we ask God to get us out of it or we ask others to pray for us.  Whether it is a health problem or relationship situation or worse we look to God for the answers and the solution.  While I don’t know if I have ever encountered an angel or not, I have heard others state that this person or that person must of been sent by God.  It was as if they were an angel.  They were there for me exactly when I needed them.  Have you ever encountered someone that you thought was sent by God just for you?
