HIGHER EVERYDAY

MONDAY JANUARY 22, 2018

TOPIC: A LIFT BEFORE LEAPS

TEXT: ACTS 3:7, 8

BIBLE TEXT:

"And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood........walking and leaping and praising God"

(ACTS 3:7, 8 ).

A lift before leaps can be explained as help before successes. A Christian youth invited a drug addict to a city wide crusade. The preacher preached on "Christ's power to deliver from sin and Satan" At the alter call, encouraging participants to surrender their lives to Christ and believe in God's power to heal. The addict surrendered his life to Christ. As the preacher prayed, he was miraculously delivered from his addiction with all the withdrawal symptoms gone. With excitement he later ran to the alter and gave a challenging testimony. Hallelujah!

The world acclaimed authorities were helped before their successes came. Alfred Nobel, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, and of recent, Mark Zuckerberg of the Facebook fame, were all helped to learn at the elementary school level before becoming experts, achieving successes by leaps and bounds. God also expects us to lift up the downcast to leap for joy. Like Peter and John, God has given believers power to preach, heal the sick and deliver the oppressed. Christ expects us to do greater works than He did (John 14:12).

QUOTE: Lift up the downcast to leap for joy

CHALLENGE: Do not limit the power of God in you.

PRAYER: Help me Lord to lift up someone in need today.

FURTHER READING: JOHN 14:12; ACTS 10:38
