Powerlessness

Powerlessness can often make us receptive to God's guidance. Saul of Tarsus was powerful when he was persecuting Christians, but God struck him so that he was blind, speechless, and unable to eat or drink for three days. In other words, he was powerless, having to be led everywhere and unable to help himself. In his powerlessness, God worked in Saul's soul so that he was receptive the the message of Jesus brought to him by Ananias. When we are powerless, God may be poised to act. Be attentive to what He is doing. The Spirit is never inactive, and God does not make mistakes.
