14 And when she knew Peter’s voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.
15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.
These people had been praying for Peter. They wanted to see him set free. When God answered thier prayers they couldn’t believe it. Many times we pray and ask God to move, we find it hard to accept. We are always waiting for the worst to happen. It does not matter if I get good news from a doctor I have to take time to let it sink in. It doesn’t matter that I had been praying about the results and I know God can move, I still expect bad results. Why are we doing this? Why is are faith so weak? We serve a mighty God. If we are praying for a family member to come to God, we should look for them everytime the church door opens. If we are praying for healing, we should not be looking for treatments or medicine to help it. If you are praying for God to help your finances, then have the faith that he will make a way. God will answer your prayers, but you have to have the faith to accept it when he does.
