Walking (10)

Today we will learn about a time when God gave Peter the power to do a miracle. In our Bible verses, we learn that Peter and John went to the temple in Jerusalem. There they met a man who had never been able to walk.
It was common for people who could not walk to come to the temple to beg for money. This man asked Peter and John for money. In verse 6, Peter said to the man, “I don’t have any silver or gold, but I do have something else I can give you. By the power of Jesus Christ from Nazareth — stand up and walk!”
When Peter said this, the man’s feet and legs became strong. The man got up and started walking and jumping. He was able to walk immediately! Our verses also tell us that the man praised God. Why? Because he knew that God had healed him.
God may not perform a special miracle like this for you today. But He may give you wisdom to make a good decision or help you tell someone about Jesus. When God helps you, be sure to praise and thank Him!
