    </div><div>_It is advisable your read the text first_</div><div>
    </div><div>📜TEXT:ACTS 9:32-43📜</div><div>
    </div><div>32 And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda.</div><div>33 And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy.</div><div>34 And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.</div><div>35 And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.</div><div>36 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did.</div><div>37 And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber.</div><div>38 And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.</div><div>39 Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and shewing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them.</div><div>40 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.</div><div>41 And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive.</div><div>42 And it was known throughout all Joppa; and many believed in the Lord.</div><div>43 And it came to pass, that he tarried many days in Joppa with one Simon a tanner.</div><div>
    </div><div>🔑📖KEY VERSE: _*”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. And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive” (ACTS 9:40, 41).*_</div><div>
    </div><div>Life for a child of God is an unfolding miracle every day. From dawn till dusk, so many things happen to thwart the well-organised plan of man. But when the Lord steps in, the impossible soon becomes possible and the believer begins to testify how the intervention of Jesus always makes a positive difference.</div><div>
    </div><div>Two miracles occurred in our passage today. The first was in Lydda and the second in Joppa. At Lydda, while visiting the saints, Peter found Aeneas, a man who had been bedridden for eight years. Upon his declaration, “…arise, and make thy bed”, the sick man arose immediately. He was later summoned to Joppa because of the death of Dorcas. Peter prayed and commanded the body to rise. She miraculously responded and came back to life.</div><div>
    </div><div>Apart from the hope of eternal life, we also enjoy many benefits of being children of God. One of such blessings is healing. While on earth, Jesus healed many sick people who came to Him. After His death and resurrection, the disciples also continued making people enjoy miracle-filled moments in the service of the Master.</div><div>
    </div><div>It is your right to receive favour and miracles today if you already have a right relationship with the Lord. Just as He used Peter to bless Aeneas and Dorcas, He will not only use you to bless others, but He will make you a living and walking miracle today.</div><div>
    </div><div>✍🏽THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: _*Maintaining the right standing with God makes us recipients of miracles.*_</div><div>
    </div><div>📜THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: *DANIEL 3-5*📜</div><div>
    </div><div> *MEDITATION*</div><div>
    </div><div>*Power in the believer’s tongue*</div><div>
    </div><div>1. How is the text a fulfilment of Christ’s promise that “these signs shall follow them that believe”?</div><div>2. The two miracles in the text happened after Peter released words of faith in His mouth. What is this teaching us about the power in a believer’s tongue?</div><div>3. The many good works of Tabitha could not deliver or save her from the hands of death but faith confession did. What can we see as to the superiority of faith and the limitations of good works when it comes to salvation and other miracles?</div><div>4. Faith will produce salvation, healing and good works but not vice versa. Seeking salvation or assurance of salvation through the route of good works will lead to nowhere. Salvation and assurance of salvation only comes by faith in Christ. </div><div>
    </div><div> *Prayer points*</div><div>Lord, increase my faith🙏</div><div>Lord, let your word produce more faith in the hearts of all the coming crusade participants 🙏</div><div>Teach me to always release the power in my tongue to your own glory🙏</div><div>Visit us with more of your healing virtues at the coming crusade🙏</div><div>
    </div><div>*HYMN* Simply trusting everyday</div>
