More than Expected

The cripple begging at the gate called Beautiful looked expectantly to Peter and John hoping for a few coins. Would these men give him enough to buy his next meal.? His hopes would not have been very high as they didn’t look rich. Many people had already passed him by without a glance, but these men gave a strange request ‘Look at us.’ He was willing to look intently if it meant more money but in the end the gift he received was more than he could have possibly hoped for.

Are there times when we are willing to accept second best or doubt that God could do the big miracle? Although we have accepted Christ as our Lord and Saviour, are we satisfied with skating along on the surface of life? God is wanting to pour out numerous blessings on us , There is no end to His bounteous gifts. May we open our eyes to receive His gifts through the Holy Spirit.
