CityLight Pastor Commentary:
“Now Peter continued knocking; and when they opened the door and saw him, they were astonished” (Acts 12:16). The disciples were praying “constantly” (Acts 12:5) that Peter would be rescued from prison, and saved from his likely impending death. God heard their prayers, and an angel set Peter free from prison! But when Peter showed up at the disciples’ door to let them know their prayers had been answered, they didn’t believe it! When the girl who answered the door insisted that Peter was there in the flesh, the other disciples told her, “You are beside yourself!” (v 15). When the fruit of their prayer was right in front of their eyes, the disciples couldn’t believe it! Are you praying for something miraculous in your life? Are you ready to believe it has happened when you see the fruit of your prayers? Get ready, because God is in the mood to answer!
Father, thank You that You answer my prayers. Thank You that You perform what You promised. I say YES to praying with faith and with boldness, knowing that what I pray for – when aligned with Your will – will come to pass!
