Acts Chapter 3
9 And all the people saw him walking about and praising God,
10 And they recognized him as the man who usually sat [begging] for alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement (bewilderment, consternation) over what had occurred to him.
11 Now while he [still] firmly clung to Peter and John, all the people in utmost amazement ran together and crowded around them in the covered porch (walk) called Solomon's.
12 And Peter, seeing it, answered the people, You men of Israel, why are you so surprised and wondering at this? Why do you keep staring at us, as though by our [own individual] power or [active] piety we had made this man [able] to walk?
Today, the Lord just wants me to share about, what Peter said in Verse 12.
What Peter said all those years ago, has direct relevance to the Church of Today.
When the Lord, works in power in his church, why are we so surprised? When the Lord heals someone, why are we shocked?
After all, my brothers and sisters, this is what God does.. amen. He is in the healing business, He is in the deliverance business.. amen
We must be careful, when these healings occur, that we look not at the person who God is using to do them.
Today, it is the fashion, for so called healers to claim, that it is through their power that people are healed and delivered, when it is not down to them at all.
It is all down to the power of God, and has nothing to do with them.
We need to give God the full of Glory, for anything that happens in our lives and the lives of people we touch with HIS healing and grace. Anything other than this, is sin and taking what is rightfully God's. He deserves and indeed demands all the praise and glory.. amen
Let us not be amazed, when God works powerfully, indeed let us expect it and then give HIM all the glory.. amen
Jesus said that without him ye can do nothing.. amen. We are to be totally dependent on the power of God, working through us. When we are used by God to help people and encourage them, let us remember that it is only through God's power, are we able to do this.
Just a personal note here. I love writing and sharing from God's word and many times, I receive positive feedback. But I have to remember, that it is God, who gives me things to write through His Holy Spirit, opening up his word. All praise and honour and glory, must always go to God.. amen
Let us Give God all the Glory.. amen
God bless you
