Acts 22: 6,11 Verse 6, “About noon as I came near Damascus, suddenly a bright light from heaven flashed around me.” Verse 11 “My companions led me by the hand into Damascus, because the brilliance of the light had blinded me.”

The glorious radiance and luminous Presence of Jesus had left Saul blind…and it tells us that he was that way for three days… neither eating or drinking. Saul had been headed to Damascus to take prisoners of Believers…but the Lord had other plans and blinding Saul certainly got his attention! Suddenly his world became very small, forcing him to reexamine his life…allowing time for retrospection of his beliefs…compelling him to look closely at the significance of his past actions and the current condition of his soul. And not surprisingly, it tells us that when Jesus called Ananias to go lay hands on Saul to heal him, Jesus told him that he’d find Saul praying. The Lord has a way of boxing us in at times, shining the bright light of Truth on our situation, and forcing us to come to terms with hidden sins in our life. And if we listen, there will be honest re-evaluation, repentance, remorse, and restoration.
