“But Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard many people tell about this man, especially how much evil and what great suffering he has brought on Your saints in Jerusalem;” Acts 9:13 Amplified
We last left Saul, who would become Paul, in Damascus blind and fasting. In the meantime we see in our verse today that the Lord has spoken to a man named Ananias. When Jesus tells this man to go help Saul the man is well aware of who the Lord is telling him to go help and he has concerns, to say the least. Imagine God telling you to go and talk to your biggest enemy or someone who could do you harm. I think we’d all be a little afraid. Ananias does not refuse to go, but explains to the Lord his feelings and Jesus reassures him that He has the situation under control.
Here is a great example of taking fears to the Lord. This was not some imagined, hypothetical issue Ananias was concerned about, this was a potential threat to his life. He went to God with his fear and the Lord took care of it. We must always remember no matter how real our fears may be when we take them to the Lord, He knows, He cares, and He will lead us through them.
