I am a disciple of Christ. Like Peter and John, I have been hand-picked by Jesus Christ Himself. He choose me and called me alongside Him. I do what He asks me to do and go where He asks me to go. And…I love this…He’s asked me to go and talk about Him and to expect for awesome God things to occur when I do so. Like healings and deliverances to begin to break out…through me, God’s chosen instrument. Hey, if that kinda of stuff happened when Peter and John went out, then why not when I go out? I’m His disciple and disciples expect for nothing less.
This is what I believe and confidently declare! (Note: these “I Declare” devotions are meant to be proclaimed out loud, as part of your personal daily devotions)
Acts 3:1-10 (ESV) Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. 2 And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple that is called the Beautiful Gate to ask alms of those entering the temple. 3 Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. 4 And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, “Look at us.” 5 And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. 6 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!” 7 And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. 8 And leaping up he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 and recognized him as the one who sat at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, asking for alms. And they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
