“Through faith in the name of Jesus, this man was healed—and you know how crippled he was before. Faith in Jesus’ name has healed him before your very eyes. — Acts 3:16 NLT
On their way to the temple for prayer, Peter and John noticed a man who had been lame since birth being carried to the temple gate. They put the man there every day to beg from those going to the temple. When the man asked Peter and John for money, Peter looked him in the eyes and said, “I do not have silver or gold, but what I do have I give you.” Walk in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.” Peter took the man’s right hand and helped him to his feet. The man’s feet and ankles immediately strengthened, and he jumped and walked. He then walked with them into the temple courts, jumping and praising God.
Peter addressed the onlookers, preaching them about Jesus Christ, how He was murdered, and His resurrection. And His name—by faith in His name—has made the man strong and whole. The faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of the people. He did not take credit, but directed people to Jesus Christ. Peter reminded them that Jesus gives believers this kind of miracle-working faith.
We can also heal others physically, emotionally, and spiritually through the authority and power of Jesus Christ. We are called to always trust in Jesus and to do good in His name. Will you give God permission to use you today? Today, say a healing prayer for someone.
In Jesus name!
