Let faith arise!
June 1, 2010
But Peter said, "I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!"
Did you know that Jesus never does anything half way? It's true. Jesus always exceeds what you and I ask of him. I'll show you.
There's a remarkable story in Acts 3 that I want us to consider. The Scripture says there was a man who was born lame and had never walked. In fact, for 40 years the friends or relatives of this man had carried him to the gate outside the temple so he could beg for handouts.
One day on their way to worship at the temple, Peter and John saw the man begging and stopped to talk to him. When they said, "Look at us," no doubt the man looked up expectantly hoping for money. But what he got was so much more!
Peter said, "We don't have money, but what we do have, we give to you. In the name of Jesus, rise up and walk!" And he did.
You see the lame man would have been happy with money, but when Peter reached out his hand, Jesus completely healed him!
So let me ask you? What are you hoping Jesus will do for you?
Look to Jesus expectantly to do more than you dream. Let your faith rise within you and stand in his name and his power.
JESUS ALWAYS EXCEEDS WHAT YOU AND I ASK OF HIM.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
