Bible Verse of The Day - 11-5-21

Nov 05, 2021

Acts 9:40 (NKJV) 40 But Peter put them all out, and knelt down and prayed. And turning to the body he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.

Tabitha, who was a disciple of Christ, had become sick, and had ultimately died.

The other disciples had heard that Peter was nearby, so they sent for him. Then hearing what had happened, Peter left immediately and went to Joppa.

Upon arriving, Peter was led to the upper room where Tabitha’s body was. The room was full of widows who were all weeping over her death.

Peter didn’t get distracted, and he didn’t waste any time.

Before he did anything else, he put them all out, leaving him in the room alone, with no distractions. Then he immediately knelt down and prayed.

As he prayed, he spoke to Tabitha, telling her to arise.

Tabitha opened her eyes, saw Peter and sat up. Peter took her hand, helped her up, and then presented her, alive, to the saints and widows.

Peter followed the example of Jesus, sending the weeping widows out of the room.

But he did more than that. He took immediate action when he was needed.

He left where he was. And then what did he do next when he arrived there?

He knelt down and prayed.

He didn’t fret. He didn’t get anxious. He didn’t run away in fear.

He followed in the footsteps of Jesus, raising Tabitha from the dead.

This is a stark contrast to the Peter who denied knowing Jesus 3 times on the night Jesus was arrested, isn’t it?

This, my friends, is what God does with us when we sell out to Him, surrendering ourselves wholly to Him.

He transforms us from scared, helpless children, to mighty, fearless warriors for the kingdom of God.
