Daily Devotion 4/28/15

Acts 9:11-13 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. In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.” “Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem. 

Ananias was no fool. He knew that this was God urging him to action, but he also knew of Saul’s reputation. We can only imagine how far Ananias’ heart sank as he heard God ask him to go to Saul. He knew that he was placing his own life in harm’s way. He knew that he was risking being arrested and, even worse, death. It’s hard to move forward into the calling of God when we can’t see past our extended hand. It’s hard because we don’t have any idea what is going to happen, and this causes us to be afraid. This is where our trust in God comes into play. God will never ask us to do what He is not prepared to accomplish. In other words, God will never send us out unless we are ready to move forward, but we must come to understand that we are more equipped and capable than we believe.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me not succumb to fear, but instead become willing to walk forward exactly as You have requested.
