What we could question here is why the Lord allowed this man Herod to kill James and rescue Peter. This tells me that I don’t know all of God’s ways but I must trust Him.  All I can say that I hope He is using me the way He wants me.  I have known in times past and even now some beautiful Christians who were martyred and could have been greatly used by Him.  This tells me that as in James 4:14 that my life is like a vapor that comes for a little while and then vanishes away.  Jesus said in John 9:4, “I must work the works of Him (the Father) that sent me and to finish the work.”  At 82 I don’t know how long I have to do what I do now.  Don’t think tomorrow will be like today. I will let you think about that.
There is one more thing.  Peter was to be put to death the next day or two.  Yet he was fast asleep. That tells me something.
