January 27th, 2017: A Lame Man Healed 

Yesterday I read about God giving BREAD From Heaven, with a description of a “small round substance, as fine as frost…” (exodus 16:14) and “the taste of it was like wafers made with honey”, (exodus 16:31). I chuckled to myself as I ate my ridiculously sweet treat of a raspberry turnover for breakfast and some of the pastry dough flakes stuck to my lip. I wondered, was this like Manna? The flakes of pastry dough fit the description. Thank you, Lord for that interesting thought this morning. It made me smile. 

Tonight I read Exodus 17-20 and Acts 3. Exodus tonight was the story of Jethro’s advice to Moses (on implementing a system for leadership), God speaking on Mt. Sanai and the 10 commandements. Wow. A LOT to take in! What an awesome and filled three chapters. Then in Acts a miracle! It’s interesting going from Luke l to Acts. I miss the words of Jesus being spoken, but it’s amazing to see the Holy Spirit at work. 

S: Scripture 

My verse tonight is Acts 3:8, here it is in context for you. 
Acts 3:6-8New King James Version (NKJV)

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.
O: Observation 

The disciples of Jesus are spreading the gospel after Jesus ascended back into Heaven and the Holy Spirit was given to them. A beggar was asking for money and Peter acknowledged him with the gospel. The man- who was crippled (lame)- was healed! Immediately He kept up, stood and praised God! 

A: We are healed! Are we praising God daily? Are we leaping for joy? How can we show our joy daily to those around us? 

P: Prayer

Thank you, Lord, for the Holy Spirit. Thank You Lord for being our healer: spiritually and physically. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Let us praise you with our daily actions. 

In Jesus’ name, 

Amen
