Daily Devotion: Why Are You Marveling at This?

Bible Reading: Acts 3:1-12

Key Verse: Verse 12 - “And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?"

Key Words: why marvel ye at this?

The people were marveling at the lame man who sat at the Gate Beautiful who was cured from his lameness and is now walking again. So Peter says, “Why are ye marveling at this? This is nothing, God does these things all the time.” God is in the miracle business. For months my wife and I had our house on the market. We were going to move out of the suburbs into the country. We found our dream home, but in order to purchase it, we had to sell what was our current home. That didn’t deter us. We went ahead and put a bid on our dream house with the understanding that we could not finalize the contract until our house we lived in sold. Under the conditions of the contract we had on the new house, people could make an offer on our dream house; but we had first dibs on the house. We had 48 hours to sell our house or we would “lose” our dream house. Discouraged would probably be an understatement. We knew our house would not sell in 48 hours…and it didn’t. It sold in four hours! Four hours after being discouraged, we are now on cloud nine!! Only God could do that!! This was a God thing. We marveled at what God had done; but why did we marvel? Because God performs these miracles all the time!

So don’t stand around marveling, for with God nothing is impossible!

What to do:
✞ God is never late! Never forget that!
