Are you a crippled beggar? No really, are you spiritually depleted, but boldly asking for help? Do you feel defeated, tired, weary, and have accepted living less than your potential? Has it become routine and you now only focus on surviving: second-by-second, minute-by-minute, day-by-day? Is this you? Have you been there?
Would you take the hand of a stranger, if offered, and allow life to enter your soul? Can you see yourself victorious, happy, excited about everything because everything is new? Would you embrace your new position, rejoice and praise God for your healing? Do you believe God can heal you? Listen, He healed me!
By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has given the complete healing to him, as you can all see. —Acts 3:16
A crippled beggar is noted, even by those attempting to avert eye contact. Some will attempt to help by meeting physical needs. If asked for a dollar, a dollar may be received. If asked to be carried, being carried may result (at least for a while). A beggar’s initial pain of rejection fades away, outweighed by the need to survive: second-by-second, minute-by-minute, day-by-day. Through it all, do not give up hope! Hold on to your faith, even if it is the size of a mustard seed! God has a miraculous way of sending divine remedies in ways you least expect, from people you least expect. Accept it! Then, go forth exemplifying the living testament of which you are. You have been healed…completely!
