“A man named Ananias came to see me. He was a devout observer of the law and highly respected by all the Jews living there. He stood beside me and said, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight!’ And at that very moment, I was able to see him.” (Acts 22:12-13)
Paul could’ve given up when Jesus took his sight. Many people who become blind as adults stay inside and wait to die. In our last devotion, we discovered that Paul chose to change and follow God’s will to continue his journey to Damascus.
When we change and follow God’s will, our relationship with God becomes clearer. We gain “sight” of God working in our lives. We recall the hardships and roads we’ve traveled and see how Jesus guided us through them and changed us. See the work we’ve done for Him by following His will. See how our relationship with Jesus has deepened, and we gain faith.
1 Samuel 12:24 tells us to: “Honor the Lord. You must serve him sincerely with all your heart. Remember the wonderful things he has done for you. When we do this, our relationship with Jesus will grow deeper.
Father, I praise You for giving me Jesus. Help me serve Him with all my heart and recall the wonderful things He’s done for me. Keep me and my loved ones safe and bind us closer to You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
