Such as I have give I thee:
The Lord has commanded us:
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
How have we answered that command? Am I obedient?
“Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.
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 of them that entered into the temple;
Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.
And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ancle bones received strength.
And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising Go.d.” (Acts 3:1-8)
As Christians, we must be in the right place. Abram, was told to leave his family and people, Moses, had to wee and act upon noticing the burning bush, Andrew following John the Baptist. They all need to be in the right place, Spiritually more than Physical.
If we are paying attention to the Lord, He will lead us to the people He had prepared hearts and souls, to accept, reject, be planted, watered, harvested
when we pray for our selves or others, be open to the moving of the Spirit, praying for financial needs, when healing or a job is what is really needed.
We need to be open to Ask and continue to ask until we find peace. (WE don’t always see the answer). To seek and continue to seek, the Lord’s answer, we will find, peace in our hearts. We need to knock and keep on knocking.
WE need to expect an answer, God’s peace whether granted or not. Accept or reject, and move on. be prepared for the answer, for rain? an umbrella, for finances? a job? for peace,? sit at the feet of Jesus, medical problems,? Doctors,/diets, prayer.
Rejoice, a prayer answered or not, sing, shout share the Glory and Mercy of God. Sing and quote Scripture.
Explain your reason for Praise.
Acts 3: 10.
“And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.
And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering.
And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? (Acts 3:10-12)
The answer, remind who, what when and where and how the answers come.
“And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.” (Acts 3:16)
