Acts 9:7-10

The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

10 In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!”

“Yes, Lord,” he answered.

One response to “Acts 9:7-10

  1. God controls our senses. He let these other men hear the sounds of Christ’s words, but not to see what Paul saw. The light was the glory of God and Christ. This was withheld from them.

    Jesus has control over our senses. He chose to leave Paul blind for three days. He could have touched his eyes immediately, yet the blindness served the purpose of reminding Paul what he had seen and letting him dwell on the glory of Jesus.

    When I tend to view God’s plans as a punishment, I should instead look for what He is helping me to see and to dwell on.
