So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” (Acts 9:6, Holy Bible, New King James)
- Saul’s encounter with the divine is a familiar story to Christians. Saul persecuted the New Testament church believing he was doing the right thing to dissuade these renegade followers of the crucified Christ. When Saul responded to a voice from Heaven, the instructive response was to go into the city and wait for more directions. After three days of blindness, Ananias arrived to touch Saul with a miracle of sight restoration. This two-step process opened Saul’s eyes, naturally and spiritually, and converted him from a Christian hater to a dedicated missionary.
Prayer: Lord, prayers for my family have brought them a step closer to You. Finish the process You have begun and bring the miracle of salvation. Amen.
