Asking God for too little

asklittlegetmuchHe asked for a handout. Peter gave him a healing.

Expecting to get some money, the crippled temple beggar directed his attention to Peter and John. Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk, Peter said in Acts 3:6 NIV.

He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God — Acts 3:8 NIV.

He got MUCH more from God than he expected.

Why do we downsize our prayers? Why down scale down our faith?

God is NOT:

  • offended if we ask big.
  • unable to give.
  • displeased by too much faith.
  • upset by our audacity.
  • budgeting his company.
  • on a diet Himself.
  • scrimping to make ends meet.
  • requiring coupons.

To the contrary, we are ordered to move mountains, not molehills.

  1. Amen! Love it (especially the coupons part – made me lol)!

  2. Awesome word! Thanks for the encouragement.

  3. It is also interesting that the beggar could only see money, a worldly answer, as his possible solution; where Peter, by the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus saw a completely more powerful solution. May our big be aligned with His Big! Thanks for the blessings of your posts. Praise in His Name. Doug
