Cross the Bridge – May 28, 2020

He Sang – Thursday, May 28th 2020

8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—
NKJV

Paul, the writer of 2 Corinthians, was no stranger to hard times. During his ministry, he experienced angry mobs, plots to kill him, stoning, more plots to kill him, shipwrecks, imprisonment, even more plots to kill him, beatings and mockery. After all that Paul went through, how did he respond? He sang.

Acts 16:25
But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.
NKJV

Paul and Silas were in shackles after receiving beatings and what did they do? They sang to the Lord. They were so thankful to have experienced persecution for their Lord that they were singing to Him. We may never experience physical shackles on our feet, but in the middle of our difficult times, we can still sing to the Lord. In fact, when we actively worship God in the middle of difficulties, our mind turns from self-focused to God-focused. This change of focus makes all the difference.

Life Lesson: Troubles are temporary. Glory and celebration are eternal.

Dear God,
Thank You for the gift of salvation. I also praise You for those times of trial because I know they are making me more like You. Give me the strength to praise You in those times. May the song in my heart to You change the way I see my life. I give it all to You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Living to tell what He died to say,
Pastor David McGee
