Acts 3: 1-7 Peter and John went to the Temple one afternoon to take part in the three o’clock prayer service. As they approached the Temple, a man lame from birth was being carried in. Each day he was put beside the Temple gate, the one called the Beautiful Gate, so he could beg from the people going into the Temple. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for some money. Peter and John looked at him intently, and Peter said, “Look at us!” The lame man looked at them eagerly, expecting some money. But Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!” Then Peter took the lame man by the right hand and helped him up. And as he did, the man’s feet and ankles were instantly healed and strengthened.
Peters first response to the man’s request was to inform him that he didn't have silver or gold. In life, we are often confronted with circumstances that make us feel like we don't have enough. Not enough money, not enough talent, not enough creativity.
Peter, however, knew that although he didn't have silver or gold, he did have something. For the believer, who is empowered by the Holy Spirit and equipped with the revelation of the authority that comes in the name of Jesus, there is always something we do have!
We have the ability to move mountains, the authority to silence demons. We have the leading of the Holy Spirit and access to wisdom that goes beyond the wisdom of man. We have the name above all names and the backing of all of heaven. That is more than enough!
