Acts 3: 1-10 records the account of the man born lame who encountered Peter and John on their way into the Temple to pray. The lame man's intentions were to do what he did on a regular basis. He was there to ask the people entering the Temple for money. Since he was lame, he was unable to work and support himself. On the surface, money seemed to be the best that he could expect. The "alms" that were dropped into his hand provided food and perhaps paid for him to have a place to sleep. Here is the problem though, when the money was spent he was still lame. Day after day he was confined to lying on the ground, under the feet of people, begging for their help. But God was able to raise him up from his down trodden condition. The man was willing to settle for so much less than God's best. He would have been satisfied with money, but God wanted to heal Him. How many times are we willing to stop short of God's "thoughts and plans" for us and to settle for what we can get from people rather than push through to what God has for us? Whatever man can do for us is temporary, but God's blessings, God's plans have eternal benefit. Today if you are feeling down trodden, feeling like people have the advantage over you and that you have to settle for the "alms" or crumbs that they may toss your way, I implore you to shake yourself and look up. God has better for you than you can think or imagine. Begin to tell Him, "Lord I want your best for me. By faith I receive your best. Forgive me for setting my sights too low." As you begin to agree with God, He will bless you and lift you up.
