â€œWe worship an _awesome_ _God!_â€
This was Win comment about the experience of Paul and Silas in Philippi. Godâ€™s power and wisdom are spread through all the events recorded in Acts 16.
Win asked herself, â€œHow often do I notice and ponder Godâ€™s incredible power and wisdom â€” evident both in Scripture and in my own daily life?â€
_None_ of the major events behind the beginning of the church in Philippi could have happened simply by the ingenuity of Paul and Silas.
It was _God_ who:
*opened Lydiaâ€™s heart to believe.
* overpowered the demon in the slave girl.
* gave Paul and Silas ability to pray and sing hymns after being severely beaten and put leg clamps in a dungeon.
*brought an earthquake that freed the prisoners.
*changed the jailerâ€™s heart and brought faith to his household.
Coffee/tea thought: _God_ was behind the establishment of the church in Philippi. Letâ€™s ponder the truth that this same God is still active in our churches and in our own lives.
