Finding strength and healing

The Christian Science Monitor

In the third chapter of the book of Acts there's an account of Peter and John's healing of a man who had been lame since birth. See Acts 3:1–8 . The healing was so quick and complete that the man's feet and ankles were immediately strengthened, and he went "into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God."

Because God exists, we can never be without the strength and help we need. The source of our strength isn't really muscles, bones, or anything material, even though it seems to be. The actual source of our strength is God, Spirit. "Ascribe ye strength unto God," the Scriptures teach us. "The God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people." Ps. 68:34, 35.
