Anticipate a Miracle

“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,” (Acts 3:3-5, Holy Bible King James).

A beggar, lame from birth, was carried to the temple every day where he lay at the entrance gate named Beautiful. When Peter and John came near, the man asked them for money. How his expectations must have soared when Peter said, “Look at us.” What a disappointment when Peter added that he had no gold or silver. But, the story didn’t end there. Peter offered the man his hand and said “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk” (verse 7). He walked into the temple for the first time, no longer lame because both he and Peter had great expectations.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, strengthen my faith to anticipate a miracle for people I met in in unexpected places. Amen.
