Read Acts 3 – The power of a surrendered life is on display in Peter and John. It is not their power, wisdom, eloquence or authority that heals the lame man, but their full surrender to Christ’s care and control… and, Beloved! May that be your prayer too:
“Jesus, use me to reveal yourself to those around me. May my life be a testimony to your goodness, power and love. Amen”
The lame man wanted money. He limited his desire to what he thought he deserved. He didn’t dream big enough to want to be healed.
Beloved, do you limit your dreams? God’s Word says, “No eye has seen, nor ear has heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9.
Peter and John relied on Jesus’s power to heal the lame man, that Jesus would be glorified – for the lame man – and for many who witnessed the miracle. The lame man responded with glee, praising God, and went into the temple with Peter and John. The people were astounded, and Peter saw the opportunity to speak about Jesus! Beloved, be sensitive to opportunities to share about Jesus. People are perishing. Your life is a testimony to the goodness and glory of God. Dream big!
