Acts chapter 12:11-15:

Categories: Don’s Daily Devotions

Acts chapter 12:11-15:

V11:  Peter comes to himself and finally realises that the Lord has acted to deliver him, and that this is real. The Lord still has work for him to do!

V12:  He knows where the believers will be gathered, as indeed they are, praying for him, in the house of Mary, the mother of John Mark, here introduced into the record for the first time. This young man will have a rather chequered career in coming days, but will ultimately become the writer of the gospel which bears his name – tradition says with Peter as his main source.

V13-14:  He knocks at the gate, and a servant girl named Rhoda comes out, but hearing and recognising Peter’s voice she is so overjoyed she runs in to tell the gathering, and forgets to let Peter in!

V15:  The others do not believe her – they say she’s out of her mind – or if not, it can’t be the ” real Peter”, it’s his ” angel” ( His ” guardian angel” ? His spirit? ) They don’t believe this is the answer to the very prayers they are gathered to make! Do we at times fail to realise God’s answers to our prayers? Or do we even pray not truly anticipating an answer?
