Acts 16: 22-24
"The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten with rods. After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully. When he received these orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.
About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose."

This scripture reminds us that things are not always as they appear.  To the natural eye, Paul and Silas had been beaten and thrown in prison.  So, they were in a hopeless situation with no hope of getting out, but God.  God intervenes in the middle of the night, opens the cell doors and loosens the chains.  So, the question is "Are you expecting to continue to live in your current prison?" or "Are you expecting for God to break the chains and open the doors?".  

Note: If you choose to breakout in prayer and praise are recommended.
