Curing Lameness-3

Acts 3:1 “Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, [being] the ninth [hour].”
Acts 3:2 “And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;”
Acts 3:3 “Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.”
…From yesterday…
He was suffering from the consequences of what had been done in his past which he knows nothing about! Limits had been placed on his life by his ancestors, family background and probably where he came from; he is suffering from impediments placed on him by circumstances beyond his control. It could even be a cultural issue, race, colour or his physical appearance. How sad?
But the sad part is that, this man has come to accept these limitations or impediments as facts and they have formed his reality. He simply cannot see beyond them.
Friend, what lameness have you accepted because of your background? Have you come to accept poverty as a status? I have seen people who believe wealth is reserved for a particular class of people but not them! They have a reference in the fact that nobody had been rich in their lineage. They can’t see one person who had broken the barrier before. As a result they have accepted poverty as the norm.
I have heard men say, “This particular disease runs in the family”! “This particular bad behavior is common to people who come from that particular part of the country”. I have heard people say, “Nobody builds in their family”. “Everybody is a civil servant in their place”. You hear slangs like “After all I was not born with a silver spoon”.
Beloved, those are simply lameness from the mother’s womb!
Like this man many people have accepted their situation in life as permanent.
To be continued…
Love you BiG
