Do you remember the story of Saul? He was persecuting the early church and breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. While traveling on the road to Damascus, Saul encountered Jesus, who sent him into the city to wait for further instructions. For three days, Saul was blind and did not eat or drink anything. He waited for the Lord.
“In Damascus, there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!” “Yes, Lord,” he answered. The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying.” Acts 9:10-11When Ananias came to Saul, he placed his hands on Saul and told him that Jesus sent him, so that he could see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit. And when Saul opened his eyes, what was the first thing he saw? A man named Ananias. His name meant Grace, mercy, and a gift of the Lord. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
This is how God meets each one of us. No matter where we’ve come from or what we’ve done, we are offered forgiveness, healing, and love. But will we see it? Today, let your eyes be opened to this truth.
