How'd he do it?

Acts 14 "19 ¶ And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead.
20 Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe."

2 Corinthians 11 "24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.
25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness."

Acts 16 "22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.
23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:
24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
25 ¶ And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them."

Have you ever asked yourself, "how'd he do it," "how'd Paul physically recover so quickly, so miraculously?"  Well Paul gives us a very simple answer.

Romans 8 "11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you."

Quicken-dzo-op-oy-eh'-o ;to ( re ) vitalize (literal or figurative): make alive, give life, quicken. And. THIS IS WHAT WE SEE IN THE LIFE OF PAUL! The very same should be evident and seen in our own lives today.  Jesus said; John 6 "63 It is the spirit that quickeneth;" 

Allow the spirit within to revitalize your mortal bodies!

Ephesians 1:19 That you would know the exceeding greatness of His power to all who believe!

Ephesians 3:20 Exceedingly Abundantly according to the power that works within!

I love you all very much!(NLM)
