Suddenly there was a great earthquake…and immediately all the doors were opened…” [Acts 16:26 KJV]

Talk about the talk of the town, this miracle happened in the city jail!  Right in the middle of the Market place.  God had it all planned, He is Master at putting the right people in the right places for His purposes.   Two men in jail and the whole jailhouse fell apart.  They meet God in the middle of their day in court!   Now that’s a miracle.

Paul was commissioned to ‘carrying the Name’ and this was how he accomplished it.  When the miraculous happened all Paul did was have the correct attitude!  His attitude was the way in which he ‘carried’ the Name of the Lord.  Attitude got everyone’s attention; his attitude released the action in the earthly realm.  It wasn’t a heavenly earthquake; right there on terra firma power erupted, all from an attitude of praise!

One of the greatest hindrances to the Christian’s internal peace is the common habit of dividing our lives into two areas the sacred and the secular.  But this state of affairs is wholly unnecessary.  We have gotten ourselves on the horns of a dilemma, but the dilemma is not real.  It is a creature of misunderstanding.  The sacred-secular antithesis has no foundation in the New Testament.”   A.W. Tozer ~ The Pursuit of God.

So simple you could miss it – everyday is full of problems that become possibilities of power that can shake the earthly realm.  The problem is broken up in pieces and a whole new realm of possibilities is revealed.
