Prison Break (part 1)

Have you had your break today? I’m not talking about the break we look forward to on our jobs to rest, snack, and be refreshed. Nor am I talking about your “Big Break,” that opportunity to break out into the field of your long awaited passion. Neither am I speaking of  a “time-out” break. I’m referring to a “Prison Break.” Have you had a break today?

Have you had a break from the prison of hate? Have you had a break from the jail of jealousy, and from the gate of gossip? Have you had a break from the chains of complaining and condemning? Lastly, have you had a break from the bars of bitterness?

If you desire a break today, ask God for help. He desires to set you free. Continue to pray, pray, and pray some more. He will deploy His angel to release you from your prison door.

‘And behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.”  Acts 12:7  KJV


Since I’ve been released, I’m no longer the same;  I had my break in Jesus name. Like Peter, I was in prison, in jail, and behind the gate, but God sent His angel and gave me a prison break.

He broke my chains, and opened my jailhouse door, while I was sleeping bound on the floor. All in all, just the same, He came, entered my heart, and made that change.

I was released; loosed from my sin, guilt, pain, and shame. So grateful to God in Jesus name. I thank God it wasn’t too late, that I repented in time for my prison break.

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32  KJV

“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”  John 8:36 KJV

In God, I will keep on thanking Him for His divine break through.   By Hertistine Washington

  1. My early morning reading today was Acts 12. A few hours later I decided to catch up on blog posts I hadn’t read. Imagine my surprise when I opened your post (from a few days ago) and saw that the content and text matched what I just read this morning!!!! I focused on Acts 12:5, taking note of how the church responded to Peter’s imprisonment. They didn’t panic or protest. They prayed. Help us Lord!


    1. I often tell myself, “Because of who I know God is, I shouldn’t be amazed at God’s impeccable timing. But I am; simply because of how HE DOES IT!!! Amazing!
