Discernible Evidence

Read Psalms 37:1 through 38:22; Acts 16:19–40

“It’s been a hard time for us both,” Mary told Freda as they left the hospital with their newly recovered husbands. Freda nodded as Mary continued. “And to think last week we didn’t know each other. When I first heard you singing softly and praying from behind the curtain on your side of the room, I sensed you were probably as worried as I was. I figured if you could pray and sing at that moment, you were trusting God. If you could trust, I could too.” With a quick hug and a whispered wish to keep in touch, the women separated.

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them (Acts 16:25) .

As the two men sang, the jailer was listening. He witnessed their faith and believed in their message.

We also have witnesses—seen and unseen—as we walk with God. What do they see? Faith or fretting?                                             

Prayer Suggestion: Father, let my life be a perfect reflection of You.
