A Shock that Brings about a Great Grace (Noon)


Acts 4:23-31


Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

“God never promises that the sky is always blue, but He promises to always be with us …” You must have been familiar with that lyrics. Truly, God never promised that skies always blue. He never promised that there would not be either storms nor turmoil in our lives. However, there is one promise we can hold on to and believe in, that is He promises that He will always be with us and even 0manifest His grace unto our lives.

Sometimes, God “allows” that shocks and turmoil in our lives, but we need to realize they happen for a reason, and understand that His purpose and plans are to bring out His promise of GREAT GRACE. God says in Jeremiah 29:11 “ For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Indeed, God’s Words remind us this afternoon that not every turmoil is evil and harmful. With God, that shock will bring about God’s great grace in our lives. This month, God will shake up your life, but not in a harmful way. This shock will destroy all of your problems. It even brings advantage to you. As there is always a rainbow after rain, His promise of grace will be manifested unto our lives after we pass through “those storms” with God.


Not every turmoil is harmful, TURMOIL can bring about a GREAT GRACE in our lives.


1. What kind of turmoil that God allows occurring in your life?
2. How do perceive “those turmoil” that God allows to happen in your life?
3. What is your commitment in response to the turmoil that is about to bring a great grace in our your life?


“Jesus Christ, we thank you for Your Words this afternoon. Please teach us Father, so that we can acknowledge that You work with every turmoil we may experience now. Make us understand that the shock that shakes up our lives is to bring about a great grace unto us. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
