Hopeful Responses

Have you ever had someone fall trembling before you asking, "What must I do to be saved?" Paul and Silas did. God can use our hopeful response to suffering to glorify His Name. "After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown in prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully. Upon receiving such orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks. About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them." (Acts 16:23-25) Oh, Lord, prepare my heart that I might consider it joy whenever I face trials of many kinds.
