“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
– James 5:16
Why didn’t Jesus heal the man at the Gate Called Beautiful then? It was because that was Peter’s job; that was what He called Peter to do. It was Peter’s destiny to heal that guy. Very often, we think: Well, why doesn’t God do this? And sometimes — not always — but sometimes the answer is because it’s somebody else’s job. One of the most annoying things about God is that we have to work a little bit — He doesn’t just do everything for us. He’s in partnership with humanity. God almost always performs miracles through people. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a miracle that wasn’t done through someone else — whether it was laying on of hands, praying for someone, or giving or doing something great. God loves to use His children to usher in His kingdom
Thank you, Lord, for using us. Please use me for your kingdom. And thank you for the people you are using to perform miracles in my life.
When has someone performed a miracle in your life?
Something for us all to ponder!
