Scripture

Acts 3:2 KJV

And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple

Observation

Who is “they”? Who carried him daily to the gate of the temple? Is it possible that who ever “they” were, were using him to get money from other people? Are there people in our life who use us to get something from others? Is it possible that we are allowing some one to exploit our weakness or illness? Do we do that to other people? Always be mindful of the people you allow in your life.

Application

Re-evaluate your circumstances and the people you surround yourself with. Are you allowing people to take advantage of you or vice versa?

Stop enabling people in their addictions or weakness. The resurrection power of the Holy spirit lives inside of us and we can speak to our friends or family members and tell them to RISE UP from their circumstances. Give people a hand up in the name of Jesus instead of enabling their hopelessness. Be like Peter and John and lift people to their “feet” by calling on the name of Jesus.

Prayer

Dear Father, we thank you for sending your one and only son, Jesus Christ, who paid the ultimate price for our sins. We thank you for the authority we have in the name of Jesus and the power granted by your Holy spirit. Father, we pray that you will reveal any relationships that we need to re-evaluate and guide us in the next steps.  Help us to forgive those who may have used us and also forgive us if we have taken advantage of anyone or enabled them in their sin. Give me strength to Love others in their brokenness and most importantly, the Faith to see them healed and set free. In the name of Jesus Christ, I ask all these things. Amen.

Scripture

4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. – Acts 1:4
Observation

Jesus appeared to His disciples for forty days after His resurrection and continued to speak on things pertaining to the Kingdom of God. He gave them clear instructions to stay put and wait for the comforter or Holy spirit. In these verses we see unity in the congregation of believers in the upper room, as well as obedience, patience and trust.
Application

We must wait patiently on God and trust in His perfect timing; bloom where ever we are planted. Sometimes we try to rush things according to our own time when God told us to wait. Let us live by His teachings and His words, leaning not on our own understanding.
Prayer

Dear Father in Heaven, Thank you for guiding me and providing for me. Help me to grow in patience as I wait in the place you have placed me. Help me to hear you and your directions clearly above all things. Forgive me for any disobedience and error in my ways. Lord, I thank you for what you have already done in my life and all you are going to do. I give you all the glory, honor and praise. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
