How could Peter possibly be asleep when he is in jail and very likely to be executed?  It must be because of his faith in God and Jesus.  He knew they would deliver him from the jail cell… or from the grave.  Faith no matter what.

We get frustrated as we watch human judicial systems that fail time and again. Innocent people go unprotected, while the guilty too often go free.

One day, all judgement will be in the hands of God. He will judge rightly, not according to faulty human testimony, but through the perception of the omniscient Creator. Justice will be done. All things will be put right.
