In Acts 3, we witness the miraculous healing of a lame man by Peter and John, which subsequently led to the salvation of five thousand men (Acts 4:4). Crippled since birth, the lame man was a familiar sight to many at the temple gate. He definitely did not expect to receive healing that day. The healing of the lame man teaches us a couple of things about miracles:
WHAT WILL YOU DO
Nothing about the healing of the lame man was Peter. It was the Holy Spirit of God working through him. With the Holy Spirit in complete control, there was no doubting and no abuse of power because it was not man at work but the Spirit of God. Faith is not a humanly produced attribute. Faith is a response to Christ’s love revealed to us. Faith comes from hearing and experiencing all that is encompassed in the atonement of Christ. Our response is to surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, yield to the Holy Spirit and be filled with the Spirit so that we can be His witnesses on earth.
Would you align yourself to God, yield to His Spirit and let His power manifest in you and through you?
“To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities.” – Acts 3:26 NKJV
