Ananias may not be what we expected.
"As we were leaving our office building something strange happened."
All, not some.
God is painting a picture.
You can overcome
Everyone gets tempted with something. The temptation by itself is not sin.
We are not in this alone but our God is for us and He is with us.
On the surface, it may have appeared that this man was beyond help. That he was beyond hope. He was as good as dead. But, on the other side of the country was a Man named Jesus. Jesus didn’t have to go to see this man, yet He made it His mission to go to him. The man couldn’t come to Jesus, so Jesus went to him.
He doesn’t see us as a burden.
Don’t… and I will…
It takes a conscious decision from our part to resist fear and discouragement…
Cry out to Him.
When we cry out to Him, He just steps in to help regardless of whether we deserve it or not.
Sometimes my prayer is 4 words long, “God help me, please”.
