Acts 3:6 – John Hagee Daily Devotional (August-11-2021). Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”
When we are faithful to do the things that God expects, He will show us the unexpected! The miraculous becomes the expected. In fact, Jesus declared that certain proofs would accompany believers (Mark 16:16-18). We can expect the sick to be healed. We should not find it peculiar when principalities and powers are defeated. That is the sovereign God we serve! In Acts 3, Peter and John were on their way to the temple to pray. Nothing unusual to report here! They were going about their expected business. A certain man, lame from birth, was lying in front of the Beautiful Gate. Every day, his companions carried him to this specific spot so that he could beg for alms – his expected daily routine. As Peter and John walked past him, he called out. The two disciples stopped and focused their attention squarely on the beggar. “Look at us,” Peter said. The man looked at them, hoping to receive some coins – an expected exchange. Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” Instantly healed, he went walking, leaping, and praising God into the temple. Unexpected! For those who believe, signs and wonders will follow. Expect the unexpected!
Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. As you go about your daily routine, may you expect the unexpected! May you be on the lookout for opportunities to glorify the Savior. Step out in faith believing in the name of Jesus…amen.
