TOPIC – MIRACLES STILL FOR TODAY
TEXT: Acts 9:32-43
“But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up” – (Acts 9:40).
The story was told of a pastor that came from an all-night prayer vigil to meet his wife crying. Their first son was dead. He comforted her and laid the son on his bed and encouraged her to go to the Sunday service. After preaching and counselling, they both came home to meet neighbours gathered at their front gate. The neighbours accused them of not being considerate as the boy had been crying for the mother. God still raises the dead today!
Aeneas of Lydda was hopelessly infirm for eight years. Peter declared unto him, “Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed”. Immediately, he arose and the people of Lydda and Saron saw this miracle and believed the Lord. After that, Peter was called to Joppa where Dorcas had just died. The widows wept and showed to Peter, the coats and garments she made for them while she was alive. He followed the example of the Lord. He called them out of the room, prayed and declared, “Tabitha, arise”. She arose and this also turned many to the Lord.
Aeneas’s great disease needed a great cure. He could not help himself neither could his friends and physicians. In like manner, sin, the soul sickness, is incurable with no soul physician but Calvary and no balm but the Saviour’s wounds. Looking for solution elsewhere will dissipate much energy to no avail. No matter the gravity of the situation, Jesus remains the same yesterday, today and forever. There is still miracle for you only if you will call on Him today!
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Miracles still happen today.
