Acts 9:10; 1 Sam. 3:1-11

Here a man named Ananias was introduced to us. No relation to the Ananias that we saw back in chapter 5. This Ananias didn’t try to pull a fast one; he was just patiently waiting and serving the Lord. Ananias was in the right place at the right time to be used. Often times, what determines whether or not God will try to use us in a certain situation is availability. God wants to use us. Especially if we happen to be in the right place at the right time. Ultimately, though, the availability question comes down to us rather than God. The question ends up being “Will I be used?” Are you willing to step outside your comfort zone to serve Him? God spoke to Ananias. God called his name. Ananias had a vision. Ananias was willing. He answered the question as to whether he would allow God to use him.   The whole scene of God speaking to Ananias was very similar to another situation when the Lord called Samuel as seen in our text. God called Ananias, but, he knew the Lord. He had that personal relationship with Jesus, and Ananias recognised God’s voice. He listened.

Point of Emphasis:      I must be at the right place at the right time to be used of God

Prayer Point:               Lord, help me to make myself available for your use
