Change our perspective

Acts 9: 11-12

11 The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.”


As I sit and wonder what is God doing in this hour concerning His church, I sense a stirring in my spirit.  There is and has been a hunger in the body of believers for something new and fresh from God, not another service, another conference, prophet and so on. The hunger that cannot be satisfied with anything else other than a real substance from the Heavenly realm, this has been stirring in the past few years and there is a fresh wind of change in the air for the next move of what we call the ” Move of God”.

We all have an understanding of the road to Damascus as it relates to Saul’s conversion, however I feel that there is so much more of that in the works right now in the spiritual sense for the believer.  Saul was Jewish with an understanding of the Law of Moses and of the coming Messiah.  A man whom was known, well known of his past dealings with the followers of Christ as a torturer. How many of us have a past we would like to forget? Well I am sure Saul was not trying to forget at this moment when he encounters Jesus on the road to Damascus, there is a sense of what is going on?  How did I end up blind and having to go and have someone whom I was to have bound and brought to Jerusalem to torture?


When we have an encounter with the Lord Jesus, as Saul did we not only have a change of perception but also in our identity in Him.  Saul’s perception of the Disciples of Jesus had changed because of a miracle that was done on the behalf of the Lord and there was no denying the touch of the Masters hand when Ananias came to the house and lay hands on him to restore his sight.  We all need a touch of God to change our perception on the things we come against. Let our hunger and thirst for the things of God’s glory change the way we see and perceive as it relates to the Kingdom of God. Only then can our nature and identity change to become an instrument for the Lord.

My thoughts, my spirit is stirring,
