Act in Faith

Acts 28, Philemon, Psalms 98, 100, 102, Philippians 1

Paul went in to see him and, after prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him. When this had happened, the rest of the sick on the island came and were cured. Acts 28:8-9

I think of Paul as a bold and great preacher, but on the island of Malta Luke only shares his actions. They were on this island three months after the shipwreck and there is not one word of Paul quoted, yet he had tremendous impact on the people. I am sure he spoke, but God shows us that we don’t have to be great orators. If we would help others to see Jesus we do well to live with confidence and be bold to pray for God to bring blessing for those who do not know his name. There may be times when you are called to pray for healing for someone who has no hope. Then pray boldly. God still does miracles. It is not a test of your faith or of God’s power. Prayer is the means by which we ask God to touch people with his loving and powerful hand.
