// Read Acts 3:1-11 //

One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon. Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

Peter Speaks to the Onlookers

11 While the man held on to Peter and John, all the people were astonished and came running to them in the place called Solomon’s Colonnade.

There are two groups of people on earth:
(i.) The Carriers
(ii.) The Handlers Carriers will always drop people at the beautiful gate but Handlers will take you into the beautiful things.
Carriers give you no choice; but Handlers initiates your choice; Carriers make you a beggar but Handlers make you to join the givers. Carriers will make you a visionary but Handlers will make you a missionary.
Don’t enjoy being carried or your expenses being carried by men, you need a handler in life not a carrier. Nobody gave glory to God until the man himself walked. It is your progress that will give testimony to God not your stagnation.
PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from all manner of stagnation in Jesus Name.
