Acts 9:15 KJV
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:
Have you ever wondered why God chooses some people to work with, especially when you know how “bad” they are, because probably you grew up in the same neighbourhood? For a start it is even difficult to believe it, right? You always have that gut feeling that the dude has some new trick up his sleeve.
I want to believe this was exactly how Ananias felt when the LORD asked him to go see Saul (soon to be Paul). He reminded the LORD of the man’s track record, just in case He’d forgotten. But the LORD’s response is what we see in the quote above (v15).
A chosen vessel is NOT one that is without blemish!!
I know a lady who isn’t morally upright, she’d confess that herself, yet the kind of visions she gets could scare you to the bone… so spot on, you see them when they happen in real life.
We CANNOT figure out the LORD completely, else He ceases to be God. His choices are unfathomable and so desires that you refrain from condemning others. For this same reason He chose someone like YOU!!!
Have a blessed day.
