Act 9:10-18 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake. And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
No one lights a lamp and puts it under a bushel.
For He who who lit the lamp will put it on a lamp stand
It is He who opens the eyes of the thirsty to see
Opens it for babes and hides it from the wise
He who gives you favour and He who allows the chains
He who makes you a Pharaoh, He who let you be a slave
For if they knew Him not whom they crucified
Do not be alarmed if they do not see Him in you.
Even if it be to live and die without being noticed!
O Ananias! if you had but one line in the entire play!
Be assured that what He does in you
Is far greater than what He does through you;
For that which were spoken off by the prophets
Even through Judas could come to pass!
But Christ in you the hope of glory
Is a mystery that far surpass!!
For God is sovereign and worthy to be sovereign
To choose as He pleases,
To open the eyes of those He chooses
For they will know we are of Him
That we are His workmanship
The fruit of His hands, His children
Like Jesus, by the resurrection from the dead.
Rom 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
Gen 45:8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.
