“So Ananias went and found the house, placed his hands on blind Saul, and said, “Brother Saul, the Master sent me, the same Jesus you saw on your way here. He sent me so you could see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” No sooner were the words out of his mouth than something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes—he could see again! He got to his feet, was baptized, and sat down with them to a hearty meal.” Acts 9:18-19 (MSG)
Your words strike a chord in peoples hearts, bringing an “ah-ha” moment where they finally see what God is trying to show them. Words can bring sudden download revealing the truth about a situation people have been blind about. Ananias had to face Saul, a blood thirsty religious Pharisee, famous for killing Christians. Saul was on the road to Damascus with arrest warrants for any believers he could find there, when he was “suddenly dazed by a blinding flash of light…” Acts 9:3-4. Saul’s encounter with the Lord was his turning point in life, but the light was so bright it blinded him. Then the Lord speaks to lowly Ananias to go and pray for this man. It must have seemed like David facing Goliath, but the Lord had spoken to Ananias and he knew he had to go through with it. When you are facing an intimidating situation or person, know that the Holy Spirit is fighting your battle for you. Rest in His peace and take it one step at a time. If you have heard His voice clearly, He will propel your vision. You will sense momentum.
