Living Joyfully in a Storm

Don’t let circumstances steal your joy

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

Expect God to expand your ministry when circumstances limit you

  • Acts 16:28-32 (ESV) 28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, “Do not harm yourself, for we are all here.”

Commit yourself to God’s Word and listen to him speak

  • Acts 16:32 (ESV) 32 And they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.

Devote yourself to your church family

  • Acts 16:40 (ESV) 40 So they went out of the prison and visited Lydia. And when they had seen the brothers, they encouraged them and departed.
  • Philippians 1:3-5 (ESV) 3 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, 4 always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. . . .
