The Lord looks down from heaven and sees the whole human race. From His throne He observes all who live on the earth. He made their hearts, so He understands everything they do (Psalm 33:13-15 NLT).

Beloved, I wonder what goes through the Lord’s mind when we try to give Him reasons why we can’t do what He’s asked us to do.

I’m thinking about Ananias who was sent to minister to Saul, also known as Paul… The Lord said, “Go over to Straight Street, to the house of Judas. When you get there, ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul. He is praying to me right now. I have shown him a vision of a man named Ananias coming in and laying hands on him so he can see again.” “But Lord,” exclaimed Ananias, “I’ve heard many people talk about the terrible things this man has done to the believers in Jerusalem! And he is authorized by the leading priests to arrest everyone who calls upon Your name.” (Acts 9:11-14 NLT)

Now, if you know anything about the Lord, you can admit that He’s not usually One to give you full details when He sends you on an assignment. Most times, you have to step out in faith trusting that He will tell you what you need to know when He feels you need to know it… no sooner and no later. But in this situation, the Lord gives Ananias the full details of His assignment. Nothing missing, but yet Ananias comes up with excuses. But Ananias, didn’t you hear anything the Lord has just told you? You’ve heard many people talk about the terrible things he has done but what about what I, the Lord, your God is saying? I just told you… “He is praying to me right now…” What do you think he is praying to Me about? That I should send Ananias so that I can arrest him for calling upon Your name?

Beloved, this is a case of what people say versus what the Lord says and if we keep listening to what people say, then we would only hear negative reports. Probably why Jesus asked His disciples… “Who do people say I am?” “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say you are one of the other prophets.” Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?” Peter replied, “You are the Messiah (Mark 8:27-29 NLT).”

Some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah…

People can’t even come to the same conclusion and that’s why you have to have a personal word from the Lord. People may say… but this is what the Lord says…

Beloved, this is what the Lord says; I already know what’s ahead and … “I will go before you and level the mountains; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron (Isaiah 45:2 AMP).

God bless you in Jesus Christ name
