When you stop complaining about your problems and start worshipping God changes begin to occur. When Paul and Silas cast a demon outside of a girl they were attacked by a crowd. The magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten with rods. After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison. The jailer placed them in the inner cell and fastened their feet.
Paul and Silas didn't complain about their situation. They didn't blame God for being in jail. What I liked about Paul and Silas is that they didn't wait for a miracle to occur, they did seat and hope that someone will come and rescue them. Instead, they created an atmosphere of miracles through praise and worship.
" Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose", Acts 16v25-26.
Amid their problem, they found the strength to call on to the Father who always hear their prayers. The devil brings setbacks in your life to prevent you from worshipping God. He doesn't want you to see the goodness of God when you are having problems. God is always right there with you. In the book of Isaiah God said,
" When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown, when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you".
God is with you in every situation, He will never abandon you nor forsake you. Chains are broken through worship. Whatever is holding your progress will let go as soon as you begin to worship. Do not move around telling every person you meet about your problems because that won't change anything. You want people to feel sorry about what you are going through but that is not going to be the case. Not all people are going to sympathise with you but what you need to do is to worship God in every situation. Stop complaining and start worshipping.
