It was a normal day for Saul but it was an arranged day from God! From now your days will be arranged. The dad sent him on an errand like any other kid could have been sent but by the end of the day – He had become a king! He did not lobby for it. He did not bed for it – purely by divine arrangement! We will take the scriptures line upon line to use to pray!
Better Men Have Fallen
Sometimes we get the impression that the children of Israel were just a bunch of losers that were too ungrateful and selfish to deserve to be God’s chosen people. I believe that if we could know some of these individuals as real people and not just as the children of Israel, we would find that they were probably no different than you and I. Only they did not live in the dispensation of grace as you and I do today. Many times, their sins were dealt with quickly and severely.
There is nothing as sad and frustrating in life than been harassed and forced to leave a position that is rightly yours and that you have worked for – for years! A lot of things can cause this and as you know I prefer a preventive approach to spiritual things!
You can look and not see! You can look and it looks like you are seeing but you may be not seeing what you should see. Three people can look at you and see different things. What they see will determine the way they see you and respond to you! After now – may you see clearly!
Text: Acts 8:14-17
14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) 17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
“I will be remembered and….” Remember me Oh Lord
When God remembers, He operates in certain ways.
Mar 8:22 And he cometh to Bethsaida, and they bring a blind man unto him and besought him to touch him.
Mar 8:23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
Mar 8:24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
Mar 8:25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
