Attitude Adjustment

Acts 16:25 25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. (NIV)

 Paul and Silas were in jail.  The jails then were not like our jails.  They were stone and dirt.  They had no plumbing and were full of excrement on the dirt floor.  They didn’t have freedom of movement as the chains on their wrists and ankles were attached to the stone wall.  Yet with all this, Paul and Silas weren’t complaining and moaning feeling sorry for themselves.  They were praying and singing hymns to God.  We must examine ourselves.  What inconveniences do we complain about?  What things do we consider inconvenient and get upset about?  Nothing like what Paul and Silas were facing.  Yet, because of their attitude they saw a miracle take place.  God broke their chains loose and opened the door.  Still they remained in the jail.  Miracles God performs aren’t for the believers alone.  They are for those who don’t believe.  The jailer saw the miracle and saw all the prisoners still there and became a believer.  Maybe the reason we don’t see mighty miracles happen is our attitude.  Let’s as the Holy Spirit to help us do an attitude adjustment.  Let’s remember we remain on this earth to serve God and shed His love and light to others that they, too, may come to know Him.
