His faith - my faith - their faith

Rod Shimabukuro

Scripture
And his name—by faith in his name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all. Acts 3:16
Observation
Peter took the verbal lead to call the lame beggar who laid daily at the temple, to rise up and walk! Peter saw pass the beggars financial status and needs, to speak faith - to bring healing - to this man, who was crippled from birth. Through Jesus we have faith. Faith in His name is powerful and will release God’s miraculous and manifest presence. God wants me to live “through Jesus” using the faith He has given me. To be a vessel of his miraculous.
Application
Today - His miraculous lives in me. It is Jesus faith that dwells in me - to do the miraculous. But maybe like Peter, I need to look pass the “immediate” need to speak faith towards the greater miracle.

Today - I speak faith and life into the hearts of those I counseled, to not just make things right in their physical circumstances (hardships). But to make things right with Jesus. They came with relational, emotional issues, looking to live better in their circumstance and surroundings.
“Practical advice I can give you... but in the name of Jesus, give your hearts to the God who will fix you on the inside. You came for counsel to make things better - but you leave receiving healing for your hearts!”
Prayer
Jesus - Thank you for beginning and continuing the work of healing hearts first. I appreciate Your counsel, wisdom and direction to be a vessel who carries Your faith. Through You, marriages are healed. I love You - more than I love having or desiring great faith to do great works.
