Acts 3:1-10 – 3 Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. 2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple; 3 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms. 4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” 5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. 6 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.” 7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God. 10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
How incredible! Shortly after being filled with the Holy Spirit, Peter and John healed a lame man. We must remember that it was not by their own power but by the power of the Holy Spirit. But Peter and John show us that the Lord has given us our greatest weapon to protect ourselves and bless those around us – prayer. Through prayer, we have direct access to the power of the Holy Spirit. Remember to call on Him in your storms and have faith that He will give you the strength and power you need.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
