Rhoda’s Faith

Key Verse

“And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.” Acts 12:15

Text — Acts 12:6-15


After the resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, great persecution arose against the church. King Herod had Peter arrested and wanted to put him on trial. Herod was the wicked king who killed another disciple named James. Concerned Christians gathered in the house of a woman named Mary – she was the mother of John Mark. They prayed for Peter to be set free.
Then a little girl among the praying Christians named Rhoda heard a gentle knock on the gate and recognized Peter’s voice. She was so excited that she forgot to open the gate. She just ran back into the prayer meeting and shouted “Peter is at the gate”, but they did not believe her. Because she was so sure that God had answered their prayers, she persisted, telling them that it was truly the Apostle. Poor Peter kept knocking until they opened the gate and pulled him inside. Peter told the amazed group how an angel had freed him, just the miracle they were praying for!

Sometimes when we pray, we are full of doubts. Oftentimes, part of us does not really believe God will help. The word of God has assured us that when we pray, God will answer. We need not doubt, only believe because with faith as tiny as the mustard seed, you will move mountains.
