God makes a way for his children and gives them his favor, no matter how desperate their situation.
In Acts chapter 3, Peter and John are entering the temple, and a lame beggar asks them for money. Peter responds, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you.”
Pause there. This is a very strange response.
In the chapter before, we’re told the believers had everything in common and shared money with any who had need. Surely Peter or John could’ve run down the street and asked for some money to get this poor beggar through the day.
Instead Peter says, “I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!”
The formerly lame man goes leaping and dancing into the Temple, praising God.
