God’s Power Is Available To Us Today

In the early days of the church, God gave the apostles the power to do miracles. In Acts 9, Peter was in the town of Lydda. There, he met a named Aeneas who had been paralyzed and bedridden for eight years Peter went to him and said, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you! Get up and roll up your sleeping mat!” (Acts 9:32-35). And the Bible says that Aeneas was healed! Hearing this, the whole town of Joppa and Sharon saw Aeneas walking around they turned to the Lord.
What was the purpose of this miracle?
It was to verify the early church. The church was very young then. It was viewed like a cult would be viewed. So, to prove to skeptics that the church was legit, God used miracles to convince people that His church was real. This wasn’t a cult, it was real.
The same power that God used to heal Aeneas is available today. I don’t want challenge you are facing, but God can help. I’m not saying God will heal you… that’s God’s business, not mine. But, the power that was used to heal Aeneas is available to you.
It’s available to help you with your temper if needed.
It’s available to help you with your addiction if needed.
It’s available to help you with your job if needed.
It’s available to help us with whatever challenge we are facing.
God used signs and wonders in the first century to prove that the church was real. The same power that produced those signs and wonders is available to use today. Ask the Holy Spirit to empower you today.
