Give Praise!

June 20, 2020

Word of the day: 6-8 Peter said, “I don’t have a nickel to my name, but what I do have, I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk!” He grabbed him by the right hand and pulled him up. In an instant, his feet and ankles became firm. He jumped to his feet and walked. Acts 3:6-8 MSG

Meditation: Think about the help you gave lately. How do you continue to help? Give God praise and glory.

Discussion Board: In the name of Jesus means by the authority of Jesus Christ. When Peter said this, gave him the power to heal a man that was begging. This blessing Peter did is not on his own but through the Holy Spirit. Peter also knew that the beggar was looking for a handout. He was jumping for joy and praising God for what Peter did, giving the beggar his ability to walk again. You can do that, maybe not physically, but mentally.  Someone may be drained and tired and don’t want to live life, but you give them joy by a random act of kindness. When God gives you the ability to bless someone, remember to thanks those around you and God for allowing you his sincere heart and security.

Prayer: Father, I pray we never take things for granted. Over the years, there are times we can take granted things that we should be praising you. I pray with your wisdom that we can always remember to give you praise and others that help us with excellent results. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
