Here I Am

Today's reading: Acts 9:1-19

Zealous, extreme, fanatical, even rabid are a few of the words that come to my mind when I think about Saul's mindset and his commitment to putting a stop to the spread of the early church. There's no doubt he was a formidable adversary. So it's no wonder that when God speaks to Ananias through a vision, telling him to seek out the infamous Christian persecutor Saul, that Ananias' initial response is a bit tentative. But when God reconfirms what He wants Ananias to do, Ananias presses forward in obedience. In spite of the circumstance, Ananias' trust in God was steady. I particularly liked his first response to God because of the way it displayed and highlighted his submissive heart and desire to serve. "Here I am, Lord" (vs. 10).

What does Ananias show us about following God's prompting even when the circumstances may not make sense to us? What is it that God is prompting you to do or take action on today? Are you ready and willing to respond "Here I am, Lord"? Tami

One thing we see here is that the Lord doesn't begrudge or legitimate questions and concerns when presented inquisitively, rather than with a spirit of rebellion or accusation.
