Our Mouths, God’s Hand

Acts 5:29-30 “But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.  (30) The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree.”

God’s heart is revealed to us in that; He has a plan for the world. His plan includes the preaching of the Gospel, the healing and restoration of man. It is God‘s desire to accomplish His plan with the participation of man. God’s will has to have man’s participation to come to pass as God planned. As the Apostles opened their mouths, God filled it with His words and as they extended their hands for healing, God’s hand was extended for healing.

There is no change in the heart of God. God’s desire is still the same, there is no other name under heaven where men may be saved other than Jesus… So begin to preach His Gospel and bring His healing, to His people by the hand of God through your hands!

Take a few moments and pray to God, thank Him for His revelation to you through His word. Ask Him to help you to be bold in preaching (witnessing) Jesus and faithful to believe that as you extend your hand, you are doing it in the name of Jesus to bring healing.
