Have you ever felt like a situation was hopeless? ...like you were stuck and there was no avenue of release or relief?
Paul and Silas are in jail, and most would have thought that they were finished. But God, in his infinite sovereignty, unleashes his power to do mighty things, leading to the conversion of the jailer and his family.
