Study Material: Acts 9:5-6
5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
When Saul was persecuting Christians, he thought that he had it all figured out. He felt that he was on the right path. He continued on that path until it got disrupted by a surprise visit. Jesus Christ blinded Saul on the road to Damascus where he was taking a letter against the disciples.
Jesus spoke with him and his life was never the same again. Jesus identified Himself (v5), and Saul submitted to His authority (v6). He changed his destination and changed his scope of work. What path are you on? Jesus Christ could surprise you and disrupt your path in order to take you towards destiny. Saul was to become Paul. More importantly, he was to plant churches and raise men and women of God to carry forth the gospel of the Kingdom.
What path are you on? Do you require Jesus to disrupt your path? Some of might be on the wrong paths but might find it hard to change directions. You might be unsure. One thing for sure is that God is a God of surprises. He will direct your path in the name of Jesus Christ.
Homework: Pray and say, Father, if I am headed in the wrong direction, please disrupt my path. Please visit me on my road to Damascus.
