Traveling with Paul (6)

Another person who traveled with Paul was Silas. Acts 15:22 tells us that Silas was a man “respected by the believers.”
Our Bible Reading talks about a time when Paul and Silas were in the city of Philippi. While they were in Philippi, they met a servant girl. She had a spirit from the devil that helped her “tell what would happen in the future” (verse 16). Paul commanded the evil spirit to leave the girl. The men who owned the girl were upset “because they could no longer use her to make money” (verse 19). So Paul and Silas were thrown into jail.
What did Paul and Silas do in jail? Did they complain about their situation? No! “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing songs to God” (verse 25a). God sent an earthquake to free Paul and Silas from jail. Then they were able to tell the jailer and his family about Jesus.
Maybe you will have problems today. Will you complain and feel sorry for yourself? Or, will you sing and praise God like Paul and Silas did?
