But My people would not heed My voice, and Israel would have none of Me, so I gave them over to their own stubborn heart, to walk in their own counsels.
It is truly thrilling, LORD, to read about the chains breaking off Paul and Silas as they sang, imprisoned, after having been severely beaten by the multitude. I saw an image on Facebook yesterday of handcuffs -- huge handcuffs(!) around wrists held up for the camera. The caption (approximately) read as follows, "Only God can break these chains." And so I pray, LORD, for You Alone are able to break all chains of bondage off all people in bondage! This I pray in faith, committing my heart to believe that You are already on the way, oh Holy Triune God! Selah.
