Good morning people who are filled with God’s Spirit
We continue this story from yesterday where Peter and John have been asked for money from a person who was crippled.
Acts 3:6 Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”
Peter could not give money to this man who was requesting money for a very good reason. He didn’t have any.
Yet Peter did not walk away. Oh, this is powerful.
Many times we walk away from a requested need because we cannot give what is being asked for. But as I said yesterday, the requested need is not always the greatest need.
Peter knew what he had received from God and he knew it would change this crippled man’s life more than what he was being asking for.
Peter possessed the power of God through the infilling of the Holy Spirit. Peter knew this power from God could cure the core issue that required this man to beg. Peter knew that what he could give through the power of the Holy Spirit would meet a much greater need.
But Peter could only give it because he had received it. Peter did not say, “What I’ve heard about, I give to you.” No. Peter could only pass on what he personally had received.
So what have you personally received from God?
Are you bold enough to meet people’s greatest need, often times their unspoken need?
You need to be continually filled with God’s Spirit to meet people’s greatest needs.
