Within Acts 9:1-31, we get the conversion of Saul. He was on his way to Damascus taking anyone who followed the teachings of Jesus and putting them in prison. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him (v. 3). The voice of Jesus then confronted Saul about the reason for persecuting those who followed His teachings.
Saul was blind for three days until a follower of Jesus named Ananias obeyed God’s command to help Saul. Ananias was hesitant about God’s command at first because of the reports about Saul’s anger toward them but he courageously obeyed and placed his hands on Saul to restore his sight (v. 12). Saul was then baptized and spent several days with the disciples in Damascus before beginning his ministry (v. 22).
Like Paul, there are many in this world going the wrong way but conversion can turn them to the right way. This day with You Lord, we ask that you use us to give sight to those who are blind spiritually. Like Ananias, help us to have the courage to obey You because with You, all things are possible.
