"Growing Stronger in Faith"

It only takes a moment to shift your faith. The mind is powerful and thoughts are fleeting. We must intentionally chose to put our faith in the Father to be God in our lives. Trust Him to be God in the work place, at the grocery store, at the doctors office, in the drive thru, and in your home.  

   1. Be willing to ask.
   2. It will take some action - “look at us”. Be ready to do what God tells you to do.
   3. Be prepared for getting something better than what you’ve asked for - strength in places where you are weak (v 7).
   4. Get up, go to church and praise God
Our response should be to praise God with those who have overcome!
   
Can we trust that healing, deliverance, salvation, love, joy will come in the waiting period?! 

“Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple; who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms. And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God. Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.”
