Acts 9:10-12 King James Version (KJV)
10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.
11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,
12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.


Acts 9:10-12 New King James Version (NKJV)
Ananias Baptizes Saul

10 Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, “Ananias.”
And he said, “Here I am, Lord.”
11 So the Lord said to him, “Arise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying.12 And in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hand on him, so that he might receive his sight.”

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

10 God still can speak thru dreams today. The purpose of the disciple was to help Saul, this would be scary for him but God knew what Paul would become for Him. Sometimes God may have just one large purpose for us and that everything we go thru is leading up to that point. He was willing to serve the Lord. We have to be willing to serve and then God will use us.

11 This would have come something across both as news and fearful to him. Saul wanted to kill the Christians but now he was praying. Sometimes God wants us to do what seems impossible or unsafe but we are to trust Him because often times this is where He would work thru us the most but to do this we have to know God’s voice apart from everything else.

12 So Saul knew Ananias would be the one healing him, Saul may have been thinking because of who he was that no one would come to him, he had been chief of Pharisees but where did that get him now that he was blind and alone, sin does the same to us, we have hope in Christ.
