Divine Rescue

Perhaps you are now in a situation that seems to be more than you are able to bear. Maybe there is a God-given vision in your mind, an inspired dream within your heart, that doesn’t seem to be possible. Or maybe you are just living under the frustration of a stubborn situation.

You trust the promises of God, but until the promises come to pass, it can be a challenge to press through.

Peter, on several occasions, found himself in impossible situations. With confidence, he could tell you this: an impossible situation is the perfect setting for a miracle. Peter was divinely rescued from a prison cell:

The night before Peter was to be placed on trial, he was asleep, fastened with two chains between two soldiers. Others stood guard at the prison gate. Suddenly, there was a bright light in the cell, and an angel of the Lord stood before Peter. The angel struck him on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick! Get up!” And the chains fell off his wrists. Then the angel told him, “Get dressed and put on your sandals.” And he did. “Now put on your coat and follow me,” the angel ordered. So Peter left the cell, following the angel. But all the time he thought it was a vision. He didn’t realize it was actually happening. They passed the first and second guard posts and came to the iron gate leading to the city, and this opened for them all by itself. So they passed through and started walking down the street, and then the angel suddenly left him. ~ Acts 12:6-10

I want to focus on certain peculiar words of scripture. The Bible says, “But all the time he thought it was a vision. He didn’t realize it was actually happening.

Think about that.

Peter, while experiencing the divine rescue of God, was not aware that He was being rescued.

During the difficult times, it can seem as though the divine rescue of God is just a vision, a hope, or a dream. But God’s divine rescue is happening now! Whether you see it or not, God is getting you out of this situation. God is bringing the vision to pass.

You may not know how the dream is going to come to pass. You may not know from where your breakthrough will come. But God has dispatched Heavenly help – your miracle is coming. Hold on. Have hope. Don’t surrender to doubt.

He makes a way where there seems to be no way. He shows Himself strongest in the times that seem to be the most challenging. And when the miracle has finally come to pass, you’ll know that it was God and God alone Who performed it.

Divine rescue is coming.
