Acts chapter 9:7-12:

Categories: Don’s Daily Devotions

Acts chapter 9:7-12:

V7:  Those accompanying Paul are mystified – they hear a voice, but see no-one. This surely makes it clear that Saul does indeed see Jesus.

V8-9:  When Saul gets up he can see nothing – the heavenly light has blinded him, and he needs to be led into the city, where for 3 days he remains in this condition and will neither eat nor drink ( but, as v11 tells us, he is praying, surely as he has never prayed before.)

V10:  We learn of a disciple named Ananias – surely a leader among the Damascus Christians – and how the Lord calls to him in a vision. He knows at once who it is who speaks to him.

V11:  The Lord tells Ananias to go to Saul, giving him clear directions where to find him, for he is praying. Again, how different his prayers must be from those he had prayed before as a zealous Pharisee.

V12:  We learn that Saul has already been given a vision of Ananias coming to him to restore his sight – and far more than his physical sight, of course. All this is ” grace abounding to the chief of sinners” ( The title of Bunyan’s “spiritual autobiography, combining Romans 5:20 and I Timothy 1:15 (A.V.) – true of Bunyan, true of Saul, and true of every one of us as believers! )
