S – scripture
She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her. (Acts 16:18 NIV)
O – observation
Demon possessed girl was saying the right things, but eventually Paul got annoyed with what sounded right, but was obviously wrong. Are the wrong people are singing your praise, if the wrong voices are lifting you up…will we get annoyed and speak to the issue or will we just let it go. paul got to the poit that he recognized what the issue was and he spoke to the issue.
Too many times we are just letting go what’s obviously wrong and not allowing it to annoy us to the point of response. May we get annoyed by the wrong voices. May we get annoyed to the point of acting and speaking to what’s wrong. If Paul was a passive, politically correct and conservative individual, he might have never met the jailer. What annoys you may be the one thing that opens the door to destiny. Your destiny may not lead you thru the doors you expect to walk thru. It’s what annoys you that may unlock the door to destiny.
P – prayer
Lord may we not avoid what annoys us, may we speak to what annoys us and see your hand open doors for our lives.
