Daily Fountain 2017 - What We Have, We Give You






Thursday June 8

Bible Reading:     Acts 3: 1 - 10
Topic:         What We Have, We Give You

In today's text, we read about the crippled beggar at the Temple's gate.

He had never walked but depended on others to help carry him to the Temple's gate to receive benevolence daily.

He must have lost all hope of ever being able to walk. He probably didn't ever pray for that. He knew and learned only one thing to beg for alms from the passersby.

Peter and John were going to the Temple at the hour of prayer one day and the beggar asked them for alms. Peter replied the man 'Look at us"

Paying attention and listening carefully to the message of God through His servants is very important, if we are to receive from God.

For the man to give his attention and receive from them, he needed FAITH in action. "So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God" (Rom. 10: 17)

The crippled man looked in faith to Peter and John that afternoon and he was healed and delivered from a life of poverty and deprivation.

Prayer
Dear Lord, may my faith look up to Thee and deliver me from everything that has crippled my life, Amen.

Memory Verse             Acts 3: 8
"And he leaping up, stood and walked and entered with them into the Temple, walking and leaping and praising God"
