Praise God

Our Bible verses for today tell us about a time when Paul and Silas were beaten and thrown into jail. They could have complained about what was happening to them. They could have sat in the jail and been miserable.

But Paul and Silas did not complain. Instead, they prayed and sang songs to God. While Paul and Silas were praising God, a strong earthquake “shook the foundation of the jail” (verse 26b). The jail doors were opened and the prisoners’ chains fell off!

Paul and Silas couldn’t control what people did to them while they were in jail. But they did control their attitude about the situation. They chose to praise God even before He freed them from jail.

You may face situations today that you cannot control. But you can control your attitude about those situations. Praise God and thank Him for always being with you!
