Don’t Hide From Prayer

Acts 9:13-14

13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:
14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.
15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.

Ananias was told to go and pray for a man who had lost his sight. No big dreal, right? Well the man he was sent to pray for was Saul. Now, Saul was a very bad man. He had a mission to murder all followers of Chist. He wanted to end the church before it even started. He did not care if it was an adult or child. Ananias was hesitant, but he listened to God. Saul would become Paul and spread the teaching of Christ and write most of the new Testiment. Now, in today’s time we have forgotten what Ananias did and that he did not question God. We are more likely to say a sinner deserved to be punished with a disability. We want to tell them how they did wrong and deserved what they got. I am so thankful that Ananias did not see thing this way. I wish Christians today did not look at things this way either. Whenever God says go and pray for them to be healed you may want to listen. God can take that vile sinner and change the world. Stop looking at their past and instead to what God can to make them. Remember God called your name, and you were just as evil as Saul at one time.
