Speed Of The Spirit

Keep Following

26th October 2022

Scripture Reading: Acts 12: 1-19


“And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.” (Acts 12: 8)

One last command that the angel of the Lord gave to Peter, was for Peter to follow him. Peter was not going to move on his own terms; he was to follow the angel of the Lord. There was need for divine direction in the movement of Peter. Peter may have known the way out, but he still needed to follow the angel. He may have had ideas of how to move, but he still needed to follow. There was need for speed, but there was also need to follow.

Friend, I am aware that you are set to run and move faster than ever before, but you still need to follow the Lord. Allow the Lord to lead you even in the midst of your progress. Allow Jesus to take the lead even when you know your way around. Allow the Lord to show you where to go and where not to go. Allow the Lord to lead you into your wealthy place. Allow the Lord to lead you to your high places. Subject yourself to divine leading.

Peter did not need to pray for the doors to open, but he followed the angel and the doors and gates opened on their own. Doors opened for Peter, because of whom he was following. Some doors may not respect you, but they will respect the person you are following. Some doors will open for you because the Lord has gone ahead of you and you are following. Some doors will open for you because the Lord strong and mighty is ahead.

There may be places you cannot enter in by yourself, but because the King of Glory is ahead and you are following, you will enter. There are gates you cannot open by yourself, but they will open because you subjected yourself to follow the Lord. Keep following the Lord no matter how not convenient it is. Keep following the Lord sacrificially. Keep following even when you are not sure of where the Lord is leading you.

Remember, Peter followed and doors and gates opened. Keep following, and your doors and gates will be flung open.


No matter what happens, I will keep following the Lord, in Jesus’ name!
