And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them.

Acts 3:5

You know, it is always, always, always, always God’s will to heal. No exception. I could spend hours teaching that. I’ve learned that so well. The Bible is really clear. God always, always, always wants to heal. No exception.

There are some conditions on the part of the one needing healing that need to be met in order for that to happen. And one of them is to have faith or expectation, a desire, something that is already innate within them, because we all have the faith of Jesus already given to us. They need to draw upon that faith so that the one who is sent to minister has this open corridor through which to minister.

Does that make sense? And so there needs to be a willingness and an expectation. It also says that he was expectant. Now his expectation was a little misplaced, right? He was looking for money, but he was still expecting. He still had an expectation of something.

As a result of that, there was something that God could work with. That goes on to show that God will use whatever he has. You know, he’s not limited to you having every “I” dotted and every “T” crossed.

But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. And leaping up, he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.

Acts 3:6-8

Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have I give thee.

Whoa, yay! That would have been a sight to see. That would have been something that would have been all over the internet in a moment if someone were just there with an iPhone to record that.

This is available to you today. The Bible is not the past, it is the present, and you need to tap into it daily.
