When God moves in power in our lives what difference do people see?

The man went into the Temple with them, walking back and forth, dancing and praising God. Everybody there saw him walking around and praising God. They recognized him as the one who sat begging at the Temple’s Gate Beautiful and rubbed their eyes, astonished, scarcely believing what they were seeing. Acts 3:9-10 (The Message)

We may not have received the restoration of our health and well-being through an extraordinary healing by God. We may simply be those who seek to walk with Jesus, no matter how falteringly or unsteady we are on our spiritual feet. That God wants to restor the wholeness of human beings and all creation is at the heart of the good news of Jesus Christ. Do we fear standing out from the crowd because of the transforming power of God at work in us. Will we join the man restored at the beautiful gate with praise to God because of his life in us? What have you to praise God for today, why not take a moment to express that praise openly, even in the presence of friends and realtives who do not yet know the power of God?

Dear Lord, I praise you today for the power of your goodness toward us. Let the praise of your name be forever on my lips and in my heart. Amen.
