let me share this...

I was reading my devotional today, and i would like to share some of things that GOD had taught me. since my bible study group started a chapter in acts every sunday, im gettin pretty psyched to study acts too,we studied acts chapter 3 last sunday and we are astounded by the miracles that was presented in the book of acts and how bold peter and john to declare that GOD is indeed a GOD of healing and power which we know for a fact that they are forbidden to talked about the GOD whom they served,and as we were talking about it last sunday, i was comtemplating about the verse that struck me;

3When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. 4Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!" 5So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
6Then Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."

Sometimes we are like the crippled beggar, we ask for money coz and we aimed for the alms. we tend to view GOD also as a vending machine, if we like to get coke,we put the coins in and get what we want, if the vending machine doen'st work properly we get frustrated, the beggar wants money from peter and john, but john and peter did not give him what he wanted/expected. they give him more than what he ask for. so many times in our lives we ask GOD to give us something and when we dont recieve the specific thing that we ask from him we tend to think that he did not hear our plea, we need to check our motives first when we ask for something and rejoice while waiting patiently for the answers of our prayers, HE answers our prayers, all we need to do is wait and trust in him, remember the answers may not be the answers that we want,but know that he give us the answers that he knows whats best for us..
