Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God.
When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him. When Peter saw this, he said to them: “Fellow Israelites, why does this surprise you? Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk?
Acts 3:6, 8-10, 12
Don’t be shocked when you receive or see a healing—rejoice, but don’t be surprised—praise God, but don’t be amazed at the blessing. Embrace God’s light and healing presence, and be a blessing to others.
Father, thank You for the ability to reflect You, to heal the sick, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty, uplift the hopeless—and share in Your grace and mercy to build faith in those who doubt Your power and presence.
Thank You for showing me daily what You can do, and what I can do through You. Thank You for providing me with endless examples of Your love. Thank You for showing me how I can do Your work, how I can demonstrate Your love in a way that helps to lead nonbelievers and conditional believers to a place where they want to believe and form their own personal relationship with You. Not by force or manipulation, but by choice, because they see and embrace Your loving light.
Thank You for my blessings and gifts Father. I humbly pray for Your continuous guiding light. In Jesus’ name Amen.
