Apply the Word – Pastor Mathews
Go and Get Your One
Read the Word: “And the Lord said to him, ‘Get up and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying, and he has seen in a vision a man named Ananias come in and lay his hands on him, so that he might regain his sight.’ But Ananias answered, ‘Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much harm he did to Your saints at Jerusalem; and here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on Your name.’ But the Lord said to him, ‘Go, for he is a chosen instrument of Mine, to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the sons of Israel’ ” (Acts 9:11-15).
Apply the Word: Sometimes we may wonder why the Lord gives us (what we think are) small tasks or small assignments. Ananias could have easily asked the Lord to give him something “BIG” to do. Though he complained for a quick second about going to see Saul, he did not complain about the size of his assignment. He was simply told to get up and go and ask about a man named Saul, and that’s what he did. Who’s your one? Maybe God is leading you to encourage or witness to a Saul-like person who will become a Paul and turn the world upside down for Jesus. Go and get your one.
