🎧 My Favorite Bible Breakdown Episode>>>
My favorite episode this week: Acts 9.
📚 One of the Bravest Men In the Bible. 💪
(Acts 9:10-12) Now there was a believer in Damascus named Ananias. The Lord spoke to him in a vision, calling, "Ananias!" "Yes, Lord!" he replied. The Lord said, "Go over to Straight Street, to the house of Judas. When you get there, ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul. He is praying to me right now. I have shown him a vision of a man named Ananias coming in and laying hands on him so he can see again." "But Lord," exclaimed Ananias.
Observation: Think about this for a second. Ananias is minding his own business, and God tells him to talk to the most dangerous person in the land. Paul was actively seeking people like Ananias, whose intentions were not good. I can imagine myself saying something like, "God, I really want to see You, but that wasn't on my schedule for today." We can learn three things from this passage. First, it's okay not to understand. Notice God doesn't get frustrated with Ananias for asking for clarification. Second, it's not okay to disobey. There are many things in God's Word that can be difficult to understand and even more difficult to obey. God never minds if we seek clarification. However, our bottom line should always be obedience. Finally, we learn that God knows what He is doing.
Application: It's okay to feel fear or uncertainty when it comes to obeying God's ways. Feel the uncertainty and do it anyway.
