You’re Breaking Out

6th November 2022

Scripture Reading: Acts 12: 1-19


“Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter.” (Acts 12: 18)

It is instructive to observe that the soldiers whom Peter was chained to, were still in the prison when the angel of the Lord took Peter out of the prison. The men who were positioned to keep Peter at a spot were still there and Peter broke out and pass through the gate and into the city. They were positioned to stop him, and they didn’t even need to leave before Peter could escape. They were still at the duty post, and Peter broke out of prison.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: the people who were positioned to keep you at the same spot will still be there and you will break out of their confinement. The haters who insist you must not rise will still be there and you will rise higher than they ever imagined. Your adversaries will still be there and you will hit your target. Those that said you will not amount to anything will still be watching as you become greatness personified.

The keepers of the prison and the soldiers therein would have imagined that no one could walk away from the prison without their consent, but they woke up to see that Peter was gone, without needing their help. They imagined it would be at their instance, but it happened without their help. Go and announce to those who imagine that you cannot move without them, that God will move you upwards and forward without them.

Are there demonic gatekeepers that say you will not rise until they are prepared? God is about to embarrass them with your rising. They will still be holding the chains down and you will rise out of their chains. They will still be boasting of how they kept you down and you will rise and break out of their midst. They will still be insisting that your destiny is in their hands and you will move on. They will still be at the gate and you will pass.

Stop losing sleep on account of the demonic gatekeepers that say you will not rise except they are ready to let you rise. If God be for you, you will rise above them and rise above their influence. They will still be at the gate and you will pass through the gate.


No demonic gatekeeper will stop my rising; they will still be there and I will break out, in Jesus’ name!
