God Heals Men

ENGLISH

So Ananias departed and entered the house. And laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus who appeared to you on the road by which you came has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he rose and was baptized; and taking food, he was strengthened. — Acts 9:17-19

So this moment is interesting. Because I hope we all know that God could have healed Saul without the help of Ananias. In fact, Ananias is not healing Saul. God is healing Saul. And I believe God is up to something big here. He is bringing two opposing men together to heal something more important than just Saul's sight. He is healing the tension between two opposing groups and bringing them together under a single vision. And by bringing them together, God is showing both men some new things. First, God is revealing that he has a plan and that his plan is far more significant than their plans. Second, God is revealing to both men a divine healing that goes far beyond physical healing. Third, God is revealing to both men how we get to participate in his grace and how essential it is to extend it to others.

I don't know about you, but as the division grows in our country and world, I believe we will see a lot more situations like this one. We might even have the opportunity to participate in God's big plan and see his divine healing by being a conduit of God's grace to others. Setting aside the miracle of physical sight at this moment, we can participate in situations like this all the time. There might even be someone right now that you oppose who may desperately need God's grace. And you might be that person's only hope of knowing God's grace. So what will you do? Will you live in fear of sharing Christ and his healing with that person. Or will take a chance and perhaps see a miracle greater than any physical healing—the miracle of the redemption of a man's soul from eternal damnation.

    My EX….brother in law, but he is my brother through Christ and then some. I pray daily for this man to receive the resources he needs to kick an addiction. I am there to pray and assist and remind God of his needs and not mine. So however this is answered, say an extra prayer for us for a man that has been in and out of rehab for 11 years and we are at this point as close as we can be. Joined this man in church for the first time this past weekend to push our FAITH to make this happen.

    my mother in law and sister in law, who use curse words like I USED TO use curse words, when I was in the military, verbs, nouns, adverbs, any part of speech, when frustrated, it colors their language. God, give me the courage to not back away from these hurting people in my life, but rather to lean in and listen to their problems, without trying to solve them, unless asked for advice. Amen.

    Today I am trying to facilitate 2 sets of men connecting based on their commonalities. I will be sure to keep my eyes and ears open to those with different views and opinions and grant them the mercy that was given to me. My sister, my nephew, dad and ANR.

    I love Gods timing in my life and the fact that HE is using YOU (Vince) as the conduit today. Your Devo comes at a time when my home church is divided and hurt with some recent Pastoral resignations. Please pray for Liberty Bible Church so that we become a untied body , pure first & honest and transparent for we serve an Amazing God who deserves nothing less ! Blessings in all you do Vince !

    My son, Sheldon Jr. a cousin Greg Jr. My prayer is that God would brake the chains that have these young men bound and that The Holy Spirit would use me to convey His life giving words to these men which would result in their lives being changed.
